The Wealth Builder Carnival #121

Welcome to the one hundred twenty-first 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.

Insuring and Protecting

Dave Leonard presents How can I save on car insurance? posted at Car Insurance Comparison, saying, "This article clearly describes thorough ways for individuals to save on car insurance. It touches on discounts, things that hold individuals back from getting the most savings on car insurance, as well as things you might not expect you can do to save."


Dividends4Life presents 4 Stocks Raising Dividends and Expectations posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "Gregg S. Fisher noted in a 2009 Forbes article that the assumption that investors are rational agents is bunk. He went on to say 'We are not rational. We’re human. Even the most brilliant investor can be swayed by emotions into making irrational decisions that result in financial loss.' Logic has very little to do with short-term movements in stock prices. Knowing this, there are some things that long-term buy-and-hold investors can do to profit from these irrational moves in the market, such as following a disciplined approach of acquiring stocks that routinely increase their dividends..."

Living Frugally

Bryan presents How Much Should You Spend On An Engagement Ring? posted at Gajizmo, saying, "A proposal and engagement should be one of the happiest times of your life, but you should not have to pay for it the rest of your life. With the Spring and Summer seasons fast-approaching, many couples will be planning to get engaged soon, giving them that one year time span to put together the perfect wedding. This article will help couples decide on how much to spend on an engagement ring, the consideration to keep in mind and how to go about picking the best one."

Tim Hall presents How to Save Money on Car Maintenance posted at Summer Nanny Jobs, saying, "Keeping up with your vehicle’s maintenance may seem like an arduous task, but its one that’s well worth the effort in the long run. There are plenty of ways that you can save money on car maintenance"


John Schmoll presents Is Your Retirement Planning Frightening? posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Looking at the statistics, many people are behind in a big way in terms of saving for retirement. Don’t allow yourself to be another statistic and start now, even if small and it will help that discipline of saving money over time."

Super Saver presents Asking for the Perfect Retirement Job posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "If you want something, ask for it. The worse that can happen is getting the answer 'no.'"

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.
