The Wealth Builder Carnival #129

Welcome to the one hundred twenty-ninth 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 Become A Freelance Writer posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Freelance writing is quickly becoming one of the best ways to make money online, without the headaches and costs of maintaining a blog or website. Check out our thorough guide on how to become a freelance writer."


Dividends4Life presents 6 Confident and Secure Companies Boosting Dividends posted at Dividend Growth Stocks, saying, "If income investing were as simple as picking the stock with the highest yield, everyone would be an expert. Most assume (rightfully so) that yield is heavily influenced by risk, but much more goes into determining yield. The industry the company operates in, legal considerations (REITs and MLPs), maturity and growth potential all have an effect on an individual stock's yield, along with the company's ability to grow its dividend..."

Living Frugally

Lisa Jackson presents 30 Blogs with the Best Tips for Scoring Garage Sale Finds posted at Live-Out Nanny, saying, "When this time comes around each year, homeowners across the country take the opportunity to make a big push towards organization and cleanliness. One of the best ways to get rid of all that clutter after the big cleaning is to host a garage sale."

John Schmoll presents Why I’ll Always be a Fan of the Dollar Store posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Going to a Dollar Store can always be an adventure. You might find some good deals and not so good deals. If you know what you’re doing though, you can score a really good deal and save a good bit of money in the process."

Theresa Torres presents How to Save Money on Gas posted at CreditDonkey.com Tips, saying, "Making a few changes on your driving and gas-purchasing habits can save you a few dollars each week. Here are some tips you can practice at home, while driving, at the gas pump, and on a road trip."

kurt@mymoneycounselor.com presents Mortgage Rates Jumping posted at Money Counselor, saying, "The U.S. national average 30-year fixed mortgage rate has popped over half a percentage point in May. If you're looking to finance a home, what's this jump done to your prospective monthly payment?"


Super Saver presents Low Awareness of 529 College Savings Plan posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Over two thirds of Americans do not know what 529 college savings plans are, despite the fact that the average student loan debt is $27,000 for college graduates."

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.
