The Wealth Builder Carnival #115

Welcome to the one hundred 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, 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 A Temporary Perfect Retirement Work Situation posted at Ready To Be Rich, saying, "Due to my health situation, my part time seasonal job is the perfect retirement job. My boss and the company are allowing me to choose my own hours and work on a limited basis."


Dividends4Life presents 14 Stocks Taking Their Dividends Up A Notch posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "Throughout history there have always been great companies that stand head-and-shoulders above their peers and the competition. They are loved by their shareholders, hated by the competition and known by all. Just as all great companies have something in common, great dividend companies also have something in common. All great dividend companies have at least one characteristic in common – they consistently raise their dividends each year..."

John Schmoll presents 4 Reasons Why Having an Investment Plan Will Save Your Butt posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Investing in the stock market can be difficult for many, especially if they have no plan in place. An investment plan can help guide your investing decisions so you’re working smarter and not harder, which will in turn help your long term investing approach."

Living Frugally

Jeff Moore presents 30 Blogs to Help You Go to Prom on a Budget posted at Babysitting Jobs, saying, "When you begin planning for the big night, it’s a good idea to sit down with your daughter and discuss her expectations for the event and set a budget that the two of you can afford."

Bryan presents House Poor – How Much Home Can I Afford? posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Don't be "house poor" - it's a common mistake and one of the simplest things people do to avoid destroying their personal finances. A mortgage is probably an American family's largest monthly expense, and it likely won't be paid off anytime soon, so purchasing a home you can afford and still have money left over to invest is essential to your ability to build wealth and a retirement nest egg."


Bill Smith presents TurboTax Saves You Time And Money posted at 2012 Taxes - Free Tax Filing Options, saying, "Again it is that time of the year that you dread; tax time. It may seem like you just filed, but now you are running out of time to complete and submit your IRS 2012 taxes."

Shelby Martin presents What Are the Consequences For Not Giving Your Nanny a W-2 Form? posted at GoNannies.com Blog, saying, "If you’re considering an under the table arrangement that will leave your nanny with no W-2 at the beginning of the year, there are some dire consequences you’ll want to take into consideration first."

Bill Smith presents The Benefits Of Filing Your Taxes With TurboTax 2013 Or TaxBrain posted at 2014 Taxes, saying, "If you have previously filed your taxes by going to a CPA, you really need to look into online software like TurboTax 2013 or TaxBrain."
