The Wealth Builder Carnival #15

Welcome to fifteenth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic.

For reading convenience, I have listed the posts with brief summaries by the authors and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Investing, Insuring and Protecting, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:


Creating Passive Income on the Side - "Stop trading hours for dollars. Focus instead on creating passive income on the side. Consider niche content websites, or engage in other side gigging that generate residual income on auto pilot. Passive income streams can be established in pretty much any profession or discipline."

Insuring and Protecting

Book Review & Interview with Jonathan Spall of How to Profit in Gold -"The book lends itself more to be a manual or handbook of the way gold trades and the factors that affect its price. If that enthuses you, check it out. "


What Are Good Investments For Your Retirement - "Retirement planning is something to start early and adjust as you near retirement age."

16 Dividend Stocks Delivering What?s Important - "In the southern U.S. where I live, there has been some controversy over harvesting forests of hardwoods and reseeding them with pines. Growing hardwoods is very similar to investing in dividend stocks. What you plant or invest in today will not yield much for years to come. That is not to say progress is not seen. It is just slow and deliberate."

Buying Fixed Immediate Annuities - "Tips on shopping for a fixed immediate annuity for investors in or nearing retirement."

Four Ways to Get Your Feet Wet With Investing - "If you're not sure how to get started investing, we look at some simple ways to get your feet wet."

10 Tips For Buying a Rental Property - "While by no means a passive investment, if you’re up to the challenge, residential rental property ownership can provide not just additional short- and long-term income, but tax benefits as well."

Relative vs absolute performance: The dangers of going down the relative performance wormhole (part I) Blog Spotlight - " To be a successful investor, don’t be distracted by the smoke and mirrors of 'outperformance.'"

Living Frugally

Frugal Holiday Traditions to Introduce in Your Family - "Here are some great frugal traditions you can start with your family!"

Mistakes With Coupons Clip Into Your Savings - "This is why I don't use coupons--besides, I learned a BETTER way to shop!"

Saving Money by Managing It - "Here are some tips to help get you on your way to better money management."

Making the Most of Your Credit Card Overseas - "There are a number of reasons why a credit card makes a great addition on a trip to a foreign country, but there are a few guidelines to follow before venturing overseas."

4 Things You Shouldn't Pay For -"In order to save myself some money I asked myself, what do I pay for that I shouldn’t be? "

Christmas Gift Ideas Under $25 - "A huge list of unique Christmas gift ideas under $25, perfect for a more frugal Christmas."

Budgeting Tips for Couples - "The days where your biggest decision as a couple was what movie you were going to watch are over. Now, you are taking a new step as partners – perhaps you have recently moved in together, or are considering starting a family."

Personal Finance Starts With Accounting! - "Without appropriate accounting, it's challenging to improve your finances. Accounting is how you gather analytics for your finance."

Tips and Advice on How To Dispute An Erroneous Charge - "How to dispute erroneous charges on your credit card."
