The Wealth Builder Carnival #20

Welcome to twentieth 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, I have listed the posts with brief summaries, often by the author, and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Investing, Insuring and Protecting, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:


Make More Money By Sleeping More - "Seems counterintuitive but sleeping should help you earn more money!"

Insuring and Protecting

Collision and Comprehensive Car Insurance - When I Consider Dropping Them - "Although I am a firm believer in having adequate insurance coverage, I also like to avoid being over insured."


Contrarian Investing: Two Top Stocks for Contrarian Investors - "This article brings out the strong points for investing in two out-of-favor groups, medical devices and natural gas. The article also brings forth the best ways to play these investing themes."

Dividend Investing For Beginners - "A well constructed portfolio of high yielding dividend stocks is a great foundation upon which to build a strategy to achieve financial independence. It is the passive income generated by such a portfolio which ultimately provides financial freedom. Watching the steady stream of passive income which results from dividend investing is rewarding in more ways than one."

15 Stocks Growing Their Cash Dividends - "Throughout history there have always been great companies that stand head-and-shoulders above their peers and the competition. They are loved by their shareholders, hated by the competition and known by all. Just as all great companies have have something in common, great dividend companies also have something in common – they consistently raise their dividends each year."

Should I Diversify Among Brokerage Firms? - "Is it OK to use just one brokerage firm, or does that expose you to unnecessary risk?"

What Is Peer to Peer (Person to Person) Lending? - "Peer to Peer lending allows borrowers an opportunity for loans at lower rates than many banks and investors can earn returns competitive with the market."

Stock Market Strategies: Trading In A Bull vs Bear Market - "Taking a look at investment strategies that would work in a bull or bear market."

A Review of Smarter Than the Street: Invest and Make Money in Any Market and Interview with Gary Kaminsky - "A book review of ‘Smarter Than the Street: Invest and Make Money in Any Market‘ and interview with the author, Gary Kaminsky, co-host of 'The Strategy Session' on CNBC."

How to Buy and Sell ETF’s Without Paying Trading Fees - "If you're planning to invest in the market, you should consider the benefits of an ETF, especially if you know how to avoid paying trading fees."

Living Frugally

What Do You Splurge On? Where Do You Save? - "Time to confess! What do you spend your money on and where do you save?"

Buying Organic Herbs & Spices In Bulk & Saving 90% - "Who knew there was such an easy way to save over 90% on herbs and spices!"

Saving Money at the Grocery Store - "When money gets tight, food, unfortunately, just cannot be cut out of the budget. Well, I imagine one could do that, but it’s not a healthy way to save money. It is entirely possible to get more for your money at the grocery store. Change where you shop, what brands you buy and what types of products you purchase and you will soon see some significant savings."


The Best Index Funds for Retirement Investing - "Index funds can be a great investment for the long-term retirement investor. They are cheap and easy to understand. This post also includes a list of some of the best index funds available today."

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.
