Personal Finance Review – Holiday Roundup Edition

December 28, 2007

What makes the holiday season special?  In my opinion it’s who you spend it with, not how much you spend on it.  Contrary to what retailers would have you think, you can have a perfectly fulfilling holiday season without setting foot in a store or hitting any door buster sales.

Thanks to the shopping on the Internet you can find some of the best deals available and have them delivered to your door; saving you time, money, and stress.  Instead of spending your time trudging through the crowds, you can spend it with the ones you care about most.  Of course, you’ll also have time to check out some of the good money posts this week.

Five Cent Nickel talks about the alternative minimum tax and the Digerati Life offers up answers to tax questions.

To help cover the growth in social lending options, Lazy Man & Money is launching a new peer-to-peer lending carnival.

Generation X Finance discusses shady Fed mortgages and Suns Financial Diary lets us know about a $100 bonus  for opening an account with OptionXpress.
