The Wealth Builder Carnival #100 - Centennial Edition

Welcome to the one hundredth 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.

And now on to the Carnival.


Super Saver presents My New Full Time Job - Executor posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Being executor for my parents' estate has become a full time job. Although being an executor is not a paid job, getting the inheritance transferred will be my compensation for doing the work."


Dividends4Life presents 8 Dividend Stocks Heating Up Their Yields posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "Dividends from a quality, well-diversified portfolio are much more predictable than capital gains and best of all, they are passive. You don't have to do anything, they just show up in your brokerage account each quarter. Inflation? Not to worry, the good companies routinely raise their dividends well in excess of the inflation rate..."

Aussie Investor presents What Is A Dividend Reinvestment Plan? posted at Australian Investing, saying, "Dividend reinvestment plans can be a cost effective way to grow grow investment portfolio. In this article you will find out more about how dividend reinvestment works and whether it is a good strategy for you."

Living Frugally

Theresa Torres presents When to Use Your Emergency Fund posted at Information Gateway, saying, "We know that emergency funds are created so that we can have something to fall back on during emergencies. But what really constitute as emergency? Let's take a look."

harry campbell presents Do You Invest in Expensive Kitchen Knives? A Review of my Shun Chef’s Knife posted at Your Personal Finance Pro - Personal Financial Advice for Young Professionals, saying, "If you’ve ever been around someone who loves to cook, you’re probably already familiar with the names Shun or Wusthof. They are two of the top knife-manufacturers in the world and most professional chefs carry one or the other. These knives may be top of the line, but so is their price tag. Most knives in this elite category can cost you upwards of $150(for a single knife, if you find a good deal). Meanwhile, you can get a solid set of knives for around $30(I purchased this set 3 years ago)."

Imafoster presents Saving Money On Heating Your Home posted at Definition Savings, saying, "Save money on heating your home"


John Schmoll presents You Won’t Reach Retirement Without Saving for It posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Saving for retirement is not something that happens overnight, rather it takes years of commitment. Start investing now, even if in small amounts, and put time on your side. One of the easiest ways to begin is to take advantage of free money offered in 401k matches."


Gen Y presents How to Automate Your Savings posted at Gen Y Finance Journey, saying, "Last week I wrote about how I've tricked myself into living with a paycheck to paycheck mentality by automating my savings, and encouraged everyone to do the same. I thought it might be useful to talk a bit about how to get started automating your savings. Like many 20-somethings, I had a lot of concerns about automating my savings when I was first getting started."


anna.deguzman@nerdwallet.com presents How to Save on Tax? Tax-Advantaged Savings Vehicles posted at NerdWallet, saying, "Get expert opinions on popular tax-advantaged retirement savings vehicles and factors to consider."
