The Wealth Builder Carnival #21

Welcome to 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, I have listed the posts with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Investing, Insuring and Protecting, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:


PT presents Highest Paying Freelance Jobs posted at Prime Time Money, saying, "Ways for freelancers to make the most of their efforts."

Insuring and Protecting

Boomer presents Auto Insurance: 10 Tips To Save Money Boomer & Echo posted at Boomer & Echo, saying, "When setting up our family budget, I thought we were spending a bit too much on auto insurance premiums. Here are my top 10 tips to save money on auto insurance."


Dividends4Life presents 22 Dividend Stocks Building Long-Term Returns posted at Dividends Value, saying, "Investing in Dividend Stocks is a long-term strategy. Frequent buying and selling of dividend stocks can significantly increase your expenses and taxes, thus lowering your returns. A growing dividend is a strong indication of a company’s increasing intrinsic value. Great companies that increase dividends tend to have rising share prices over time."

Living Frugally

Tim Rakeman presents How To Be Frugal: Grow a Garden to Save Money posted at All Things Frugal, saying, "When it comes to saving money on groceries, unfortunately that usually means eating a lot of processed crap. Anyone who has been in a grocery store knows the cost of a calorie is a lot cheaper in the form of a frozen pizza than it is in an apple."

Tim Chen presents Best Way To Buy Gas ? Gas Credit Cards or Discount Stations? posted at NerdWallet Blog - Credit Card Watch, saying, "Figuring out how you can score the cheapest gas can get complicated."


Clair Schwan presents What’s Your Definition of Retirement – Have You Been Fooled by a False Belief? posted at SELF RELIANCE WORKS, saying, "Encouragement for others to rethink retirement and stop following the crowd. Changing your focus can lead to success on your terms, and perhaps support 'more life and less work' in the form of an early self-retirement."

Michael Pruser presents The Disappointing Status of Social Security posted at The Dough Roller, saying, "Social Security seems to be getting worse with each passing day but don't lose hope yet!"

Michael presents Traditional and Roth IRA Contribution Limits posted at Consumerism Commentary, saying, "When filing your taxes this year, don't forget to count the money you've deposited into your IRA!"


Super Saver presents How Saving has Enabled Us posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Here are three things that saving our money has enabled us to do."


David de Souza presents Three Ways Christmas Could Affect Your Tax Bill posted at UK Tax Blog, saying, "Guide to three ways that Christmas can impact on the amount of tax that you pay"

Mike Piper presents 2011 Tax Brackets: What Will Change and How Should We Plan for It? posted at The Oblivious Investor, saying, "After the passing of the new tax act, what is going to change in 2011, and how should we plan for that?"

BWL presents Tax Act 2010: Social Security Tax Reduced in 2011 posted at Christian Personal Finance, saying, "A look at how the latest tax act has reduced social security taxes in 2011."

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.
