Happy 4th of July! And a link round up

Happy Independence Day, my fellow Americans! I’m going to post a quick round-up, and I’ll see ya back here on Monday. It’s been rainy here all day and I don’t know if we’ll make it to see the fireworks. Stay safe!

From the Money Life Network:

Emily at Remodeling this Life shows us how she is maximizing the space under her stairs to make a really cool play place for kids. Complete with nifty photos.

Ben at Milk Your Money challenges us to jump start our savings, and shares ideas on how to make that happen.

Check out this article at Free From Broke to learn how you can use a CD ladder to maximize your savings.

Hank at My Investing Blog has an interesting post questioning whether the government’s economic stimulus package was a way to catch people who are evading their taxes.

Bible Money Matters has uncovered a nifty site that can show you just how rich you are. If you make over $47k annually, you’re considered to be in the wealthiest one percent in the world! Crazy to think about. Once you realize how rich you are, maybe we can all find ways we can give more to others.

Prime Time Money paid off a car loan recently! YAY! We’re happy for ya! He’s working on paying off his other car soon. I know he’ll reach that goal.


If you’re planning on taking pictures of fireworks tonight, you won’t want to miss these tips at Lifehacker.

Ron at The Wisdom Journal has an in-depth interview with someone deeply familiar with how credit scores work.

Recently, I wrote a guest post for Emily about our personal encounter with debt and how we got out.

Ashley passed on a cool story she found in Time about the good side of higher gas prices.

Rocket Finance cautions us not to overspend when we receive a windfall, and shows us just how easily it could happen.

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.
