The Wealth Builder Carnival #89

Welcome to the eighty-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.


Super Saver presents Escape Velocity Aids Wealth Building posted at My Wealth Builder, saying, "Here are some income sources that helped me achieve escape velocity."

Most investors would be satisifed with that increase, but the company wasn't finished boosting its dividend in 2012..."

Living Frugally

Jonathan Milligan presents Why I Love YNAB Personal Finance Software posted at CPACareerCoach.com, saying, "The first step to financial freedom is telling your money where to go instead of wondering where it went. Here is how a simple budget software helped me get my finances back on track."

John K presents Do You Know Your Mortgage Credit Score? posted at Wallet Blog, saying, "So you're applying for a mortgage? Did you know that there is a special credit score used just for that? You better have a good record for paying your utilities on time."
