The Wealth Builder Carnival #117

Welcome to the one hundred seventeenth 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.

For me, I will continue to focus on high-quality dividend stocks at lower, but growing, yields..."

Michael presents The Lesser Known Canadian Dividend All-Stars posted at Dividend Growth Investing & Retirement, saying, "I created a list of Canadian companies that have increased their dividend for more than 5 consecutive years in a row. In this article I go over some of the lesser known companies on list and explain why they aren't included in some of the more well know lists such as the dividend aristocrats and dividend achiever lists."

Living Frugally

Kevin Giffin presents How to Shop for School Clothes on a Budget posted at Summer Nanny, saying, "Shopping for school clothes doesn’t have to sink you into debt. Your kids can wear trendy and unique outfits on a budget, as long as you’re willing to work at finding them."

Bryan presents What Is A Good Credit Score? posted at Gajizmo, saying, "With the economy making a strong comeback (despite not everyone being able to feel it), home and car buying, as well as any other credit or loan-based purchasing, will likely increase as time goes on. This is the best time for families to take the appropriate steps to improve their credit scores. But what is a good credit score? What factors are taken into consideration? This article answers these questions and a lot of others you may have about your credit score and history."


Super Saver presents Too Old to Rehire and Too Young to Retire posted at My Wealth Buillder, saying, "Unemployed people over 50 are often considered over qualified or too highly paid when apply for jobs. In addition, their 25 years of work experience is not an advantage versus applicants who have just graduated from college. Unfortunately, most of the unemployed over 50 do not yet qualify for retirement with pensions and/or retiree health insurance."


John Schmoll presents 4 Simple Ways to Make Filing Taxes Easier Every Year posted at Frugal Rules, saying, "Very few people enjoy doing and filing their taxes. However, with a few simple steps you can make the process easier every year."
