Editor’s Picks:

Charity is for suckers posted at Control Your Cash: Making Money Make Sense. Ostensibly, this is a post about whether or not you should give money to the hungry and homeless. But what I took away from it was something quite different: a testament to determination, perseverance and personal achievement. Have a read and see what you think.

The Secret To Early Retirement posted at Financial Samurai. Ooooh, I think that Financial Samurai may raise a few hackles with this one! I’m not sure that I agree with his conclusion – my inner Germaine Greer is making a cross face – but it’s certainly food for thought.

Advantages of Online Banking posted at FIRE Finance. This post, which tells the story of a recent visit to the authors’ Aunt Jane and Uncle James, does a good job of pitching to those who are new to online banking tools and features.

Raising Savvy Business Kids posted at Money Reasons. MoneyReasons is raising a brood of mini-Trumps and mini-Bransons. You don’t believe me? Take a look at this.

Lindy presents How to Bamboozle Your Spouse into Creating a Budget posted at Minting Nickels. I am a newcomer to this blog, but I already like it a lot: it is nicely designed and Lindy’s sense of fun makes other personal finance blogs look positively po-faced!
