Personal Finance Review – Lost Camera Edition
August 22, 2008
What’s your favorite digital camera? Ours walked away while my wife and son were at the State Fair last week.
We don’t know if someone snatched it or if it just fell out of the stroller, either way we no longer have a camera.
The worst part was we had pictures from both a visit to my parents place and a friend’s wedding reception on the memory card so those are gone forever.
We had an Canon Powershot SD500 and really liked it so we’re considering just getting a newer model, like the SD1000; but we’re also looking around at other options. What camera do you recommend? We definitely need one with “burst mode”, our son moves quickly and sometimes its hard to catch all the cute things he does. I’ll have to do some camera research over the weekend.
It’s been a little while since I pointed out some of the money articles I enjoyed, here are a few for weekend reading.
The Money Writers
Gen X Finance reminds us that two thirds of corporations don’t pay taxes, sounds like I should look into starting a corporation : )
I’d also like to welcome Jason of Frugal Dad to our little collection of sites known as The Money Writers. I’ve definitely learned a thing or two from Jason’s site about saving money and parenting, learn more about Frugal Dad.
Money Blog Network
I’ve written a lot recently on money for ollege graduates and college student finances so Consumerism Commentary’s financial tips for college students caught my eye. Flexo shares some tips based on his personal experiences on student credit cards, managing student expenses, and work for college students.
Work / Life Balance
As I look for a new job, one of the things I spend a lot of time considering is how many hours I’m willing to work in order to work in a job/field that I enjoy. There are two really good posts this week on maintaining a work-life balance. The Simple Dollar has 14 techniques for improving work-life balance and Blueprint for Financial Prosperity has a few engaing articles on the topic:

- Stay Focused, Stay Balanced, Stay Healthy: Part One
- Stay Focused, Stay Balanced, Stay Healthy: My Thoughts
