The Wealth Builder Carnival #73

Welcome to the seventy-third 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, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized into seven categories: Earning, Insuring and Protecting, Investing, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes. Unfortunately, Blog Carnival was having some technical difficulties in the last week, which has significantly limited the number of submissions.

And now on to the Carnival:


John presents 5 Ways to Make Your Job Application Stand Out posted at Wallet Blog, saying, "If you want to manage your personal finances, you probably should pay attention to acquiring personal finances. Finding the right job is key, but getting noticed over the competition is even more important. Job hunting is not just for the unemployed. This is good advice on any front!"

Super Saver presents Earn Large, Live Small posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Here's my simple strategy to building wealth: maximize and grow earnings; live at least 20% below those earnings. Building wealth is all about earning large and living small. To me, many people make the mistake of doing the opposite: earning small and living large."


Theresa Torres presents Smart Ways to Invest Your Tax Refund posted at The Missouri "taxguy", saying, "Rather than spending your tax refund on unnecessary things, consider making good use of it in these smart ways so that you can be more financially stable."

Dividends4Life presents 10 High-Energy, High-Yield Dividend Stocks posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "As the world's population increases and third-world countries continue to develop, there will be more intense demand on our finite supply of energy. This week week, I screened my dividend growth stocks database for energy companies with a yield at or above 3% and have increased their dividends for at least 10 consecutive years."

Living Frugally

What Next presents Old Men in Fast Cars posted at What Next, saying, "Life is a series of choices, what you decide today will affect your choices in the future so choose wisely. Because I have a larger goal of early retirement buying an expensive car now will delay that goal and I don't want that."

yourlifeforless presents Buy Current Technology, Not State of the Art posted at yourlifeforless, saying, "How to save money by analyzing your needs and only buying a product that fits those needs"

Dr. Dean presents Save on Gas: At The Expense Of Our Marriage? posted at Dr. Dean's TheMillionaireNurse.com Blog, saying, "A Mars and Venus twist on the "improving your gas mileage" article."

Jason P. presents Hosting a Party – Save Time and Money posted at One Money Design, saying, "Before you go into a panic attack, recognize that there are some simple but effective ways to save some time and money on planning the perfect party."

Consumer Grocery presents More Couponing Tips from Mrs. C! posted at Consumer Grocery Advantage, saying, "Small savings can add up – even those 25 cent coupons you print off from consumergrocery.com make a difference – especially if your store doubles coupons!"


CultOfMoney presents The best time to plant a tree posted at CultOfMoney, saying, "There is a Chinese proverb that states, “The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago…” I’ve always liked this part of the proverb. To me, it says that sometimes, you really just need to shut up and deal with the circumstances at hand, and sometimes, regardless of what you want or how much you complain, you’re just shit outta luck. However, this proverb can give us a lot to learn from."


Bill Smith presents What is the Federal Fresh Start Program? posted at 2012 Taxes - Free Tax Filing Options, saying, "Here are the relief programs offered under the original and the new Federal Fresh Start Program."

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
