The Wealth Builder Carnival #113

Welcome to the one hundred thirteenth 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.


Bryan presents Fun Jobs That Pay Well posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Not everyone gets to have their dream job, but if you are looking for a stress-free job with no real work, let us know if you find one, outside of collecting unemployment. Otherwise, here is a list of easy and fun jobs that pay well - better than most people would expect."

Susan Wowe presents Use Pinterest to Sell Your Affiliate Products posted at Online Business - Make Money Online, saying, "Do you know you can use the popular Pinterest - the third largest social media to make good money selling your affiliate products. How much success you can have really depends on how much time and effort you put into it. Give it a try. You don't need a website for making money online."

Insuring and Protecting

Bryan presents How To Save Money With Cheap Car Insurance posted at BudgetWays.com, saying, "Most people spend at least a thousand dollars on car insurance, and if you have kids or multiple cars, you're probably spending at least twice that. Learning how to buy the right type and amount of coverage, while applying for discounts is essential to saving yourself a few hundred dollars a year with cheap car insurance."

Dividends4Life presents 4 Higher-Yield Stocks Increasing Their Yield posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "When selecting income investments, the three most important questions to answer are : 1.) Is the investment increasing its dividend each year, 2.) Is the increase likely to continue into the future and 3.) Are you being compensated for the risk you are taking? When you answer yes to all three of the questions, you just might have found an excellent income investment..."

Alaina Moore presents 10 Family Dinners that Cost Under $10 posted at aupair, saying, "As food prices rise and more families encounter sticker shock every time they look at price tags at the grocery store, the idea of feeding your entire family a meal that costs less than ten dollars can seem absurd."

William presents Non-Loan Reasons You Need Good Credit posted at Card Guys Blog, saying, "Even if you never get a loan, your credit may be the subject of intense interest from those who provide financial services. In some cases, you still need good credit to make the most of your money."
