Hey All! One of the things I've missed the most since the migration from MSN is the lack of articles regarding personal finance. I always liked to read so I could learn something and discuss it with y'all here!
With permission from a colleague of mine, Manisha Thakor, I'll be posting some of her articles here (excerpts only with links). Feel free to add your own favorite articles and links or start a new thread so we can keep learning!
Here's two that Manisha and I picked out specifically for the WIR:
"SEVEN SAVINGS MYTHS - BUSTED!" Personal finance expert for women, Manisha Thakor, debunks some of the most common fallacies when it comes to saving money. manishathakor.com/saving-money/7-savings-myths-busted/ (check it out if you're in the WIRS group or thinking of increasing your savings)
I am so impressed with what you all at WIR are doing post-MSN. I'd love to write a blog post about it. Your determination and dedication to get on top of your personal finances would inspire so many people. Go WIR!
Shenandoah added this to the WIR West thread and I thought it was worth repeating here:
I just thought you ladies might be interested in this article money.msn.com/credit-rating/escap.....aspx?gt1=33001 Among other things it says: "U.S. consumers have reduced debt by more than $1 trillion in the 10 quarters ended in March, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York."
