Job Security, 401k to IRA, Credit Card Mistakes, & Restaurant Bills – Carnival Roundup

January 20, 2007

This week at Money Smart Life I touched on a variety of financial topics including job security, turning your 401k into an IRA, credit card mistakes, and saving money when eating out.

Endless Gibberish hosted the Carnival of the Capitalists where I talk about the pros and cons of having a “secure” job that you don’t really like.

When people get fed up with their job and move on to greener pastures they should remember to roll their 401k over into an IRA. I discussed the benefits of rolling over into an IRA in the Carnival of Investing over at the Sun’s Financial Diary.

This week I had two articles that were by far the most fun to write. The 10 Worst Credit Card Mistakes College Students Make was featured in the Carnival of Personal Finance at Young and Broke and 10 Ways to Cut Your Restaurant Bill Big Time was in the Festival of Frugality over at FIRE Finance.

If any of these articles float your boat be sure to sign up for daily updates of similar tasty finance treats! Have a great weekend!
