Coffee heat rising

Saturday Round-up: Sumer y-cumin’ in edition

The pool is almost warm enough to swim in (assuming you’re a polar bear). I managed to get in up to my waist, but couldn’t bring myself to take the full plunge. Another week of 90-degree days, though, and yahoo! It’ll be everyone into the drink!

My Money Blog has got a lively exchange running about whether financial considerations should play a part in the decision to euthanize a terminally ill (or maybe just a pretty sick) pet.

At Freelance Switch, Robert Janelle reflects on the cheesiness of freelance bidding sites, something I’ve had occasion to notice, too. Thanks, Robert!

Along those lines, Ramit at I Will Teach You to be Rich hosts an article by Free Money Finance proprietor FMF, who explores the best ways to make extra money. And at Millionaire Mommy Next Door, Erica Douglass reflects on a common mistake women make in starting a new business.

At Wise Bread, they’re talking about David De Franza’s speculation that Europe soon will again become an affordable travel destination for Americans. Money, Matter, and More Musings posts a rant about passport photo ripoffs and offers a clue to how to get 32 copies of an acceptable picture at a rock-bottom price.

Be This Way has an entertaining post on “saving by delusion,” a way to make yourself save, and also on the general subject of the psychology of money, Plonkee offers several excellent excuses for spending on clothes. Mrs. Micah is pleased that she and Mr. M. saved a chunk of dough on prescription drugs with YourRxCard.

Finally, J.D. at Get Rich Slowly points out the wisdom of asking after discounts and forgiveness for finance charges. A$k and ye shall re¢eive!
