Picks of the Week

Lots of good reads this week from my fellow personal finance bloggers. It’s Labor Day Weekend, but as usual, I’ll be working on deadline on Monday, bummer. It makes it a bit better than I had a great day with Mr. NSF & friends at my first-ever Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo, N.Y. this weekend. While I didn’t partake of the beer or mead, I did have a great time trying cheesecake on a stick dipped in chocolate and enjoying a pretzel (along with other gastronomic delights). Sunday and early Monday will be days of rest and relaxation — and probably some housekeeping, since I’m way behind on that.
