The Wealth Builder Carnival #147

Welcome to the one hundred forty-seventh 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.

This week, Blog Carnival had some technical difficulties resulting in fewer than normal submissions.

And now on to the Carnival.


Bryan Chau presents The Acronym of My Life – PASSION posted at SuccessPenPal, saying, "earning, passion, mindset, success, business, entrepreneurship, ambition, strategies, etc."

Insuring and Protecting

Gary presents Return of Premium Term Life Insurance posted at MLIQ123 saying, "Ever heard of free life insurance? Thought it was a myth? Check out our guide on return of premium life insurance and the pros and cons of a policy that refunds all your premiums if you outlive the term period. Should you buy ROP term life insurance?"


Matt Becker presents Beware the Source of Your Financial Advice posted at Mom and Dad Money, saying, " When it comes to financial advice, there's so much BS out there and it makes me sick. When it comes down to it, you’re the only one who truly has your best interests at heart. There are people who can help you make your goals a reality, but you have to understand that there are likely even more who are much more interested in simply taking your money and running. And the financial services industry is one of the worst in this respect. Educate yourself and thoroughly evaluate any prospective advisor before entrusting them with something as important as your financial future. After all, if they’re worried that you could do their job for them, they’re probably right."

Living Frugally

Gary presents How Much Car Can I Afford? posted at Gajizmo, saying, "Unfortunately, many American consumers overspend when buying a car. Here’s a guide on how you should budget for your vehicle and a few strategies on how to determine how much car you can afford."

John Schmoll presents Frugal Birthday Parties for Kids - Frugal Rules posted at Frugal Rules, saying, " It can be quite easy to throw a birthday party for your child and overspend. However, with a little creativity and planning you can throw them a frugal birthday party and still have one they’ll enjoy and remember."

Justin @ Root of Good presents Auto Costs On The Cheap posted at Root of Good, saying, "Justin at Root of Good reveals helpful hints that allow his family to keep auto costs very low. Justin walks his kids to school instead of driving them, and does simple maintenance tasks himself."

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.
