The Wealth Builder Carnival #149

Welcome to the one hundred forty-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.

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

And now on to the Carnival.


Matt Becker presents Make Your Money Grow Faster: Investing Better vs. Earning More posted at Mom and Dad Money, saying, "Whatever your particular financial goals, there is often a desire to find a way to make your money grow faster so that you can meet your goals along the timeline that fits your needs. So what’s the best way to do it? Well, I ran I little experiment comparing two options: investing better and earning more. Let’s find out which one is more effective."

Insuring and Protecting

Justin @ Root of Good presents Be Your Own Insurance Company posted at Root of Good, saying, "Justin at Root of Good explains how to take on a large number of small risks throughout one's financial life in order to cut out wasteful spending on unnecessary insurance."


John Schmoll presents Jumping Off a Cliff: Investing in the Twitter IPO posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "The Twitter IPO is all the talk in the stock market lately. Many people want the opportunity to invest in it. However, when you’re trying to build wealth and grow a retirement portfolio, listening to the herd is not always the best course of action as it could have negative impacts on your growing of wealth."

Living Frugally

Theresa Torres presents What to Buy in November before the Holiday Sales posted at CreditDonkey.com Tips, saying, "If you're smart enough, you can find the best deals this November before Black Friday and Holiday sales hit. Here are some tips on how to be a smart consumer."


kurt@mymoneycounselor.com presents Is Your 401(k) Plan a Rip-Off and Delaying Your Retirement? posted at Money Counselor, saying, "401(k) plan administrator fees can be as high as 1%. The hit on your retirement nest egg can reach six figures over a working lifetime."


Bill Smith presents The IRS Publication 17 And You posted at 2009 Tax, saying, "IRS publication 17 deals with general instructions and guidance for people using form 1040. Paying income tax can be daunting but reading this publication will aid you in this process."
