Where was this lady when I needed advice about my son’s financial upbringing? Mike Piper of Oblivious Investor tells the story of his mom’s very special approach to teaching her son the basics of capitalism.

Free from Broke tells a gracious and beautiful story about his “best financial tool.” It’s pretty neat!

Mrs. Accountability takes the plunge, cutting off her (highly economical) waist-length tresses in favor of a cute new bob…and she worries about justifying the increased cost that results.

OMG! Maybe you have to need to have brought up your own brood to appreciate this, but this thing is freaking hilarious! Don’t miss the story of the parental shopping trip from He!! (or maybe heaven?) by Lindy at Minting Nickels.

Speaking of pretty funny, I’ll bet you didn’t think PF bloggers have a sense of humor, right? The Magic 8-Ball says “guess again.” Len Penzo compares what his not-so-crystal ball predicted about various PF bloggers deepest questions with what actually happened in 2010…and…well, the success rate is a bit unnerving.

Jeff Rose presents How Much Are Premiums on Term Life Insurance If You Use Tobacco? saying: “I always assumed that life insurance for tobacco users was more expensive than those that don’t use it, but I never realized how much more.”
