Personal Finance Review – Count Your Blessings Edition

October 28, 2007

When you’re healthy, you can forget how bad it feels to be sick and how fortunate you are to be well.  I guess that’s the one positive thing that comes out of this miserable sinus infection that is still hanging around.  It makes me appreciate my health all the more and realize I shouldn’t complain so much about things that don’t really matter.  One of the many things I’m thankful for is the ability to read, what a boring life it would be if I couldn’t.  Here are some of the articles I enjoyed reading this week:

The Mighty Bargain Hunter has a great post on eight ways to invest in yourself, Five Cent Nickel offers a good quote on being rich, and The Simple Dollar discusses how we preserve the things money can’t buy.
