Finance links round-up

  • Gail tells Canadians to save their taxes throughout the year instead of getting a tax refund. The IRS has an awesome withholding calculator that I use to update my W-4 with my employer since I can do that online and from home.
  • Well Heeled Blog discusses “if it matters who makes more money in a relationship”. [site is gone, so took the link down]
  • G.E. Miller of 20 Something Finance explains that 89% of feel overworked too.
  • The Finance Buff discusses whether it makes sense to lump sum, dollar cost average, or wait for dip to make his Roth IRA contributions. This past year, I started out putting $416.66 in each month and then when I got a bonus in April, I maxed out my Roth IRA. I think that in 2012, I will wait until I know if I can Roth IRA or not and will thus end up doing a lump sum.
  • Her Every Cent Counts talks about her only 2% rent increase. My rent would go up a lot if I renew my lease, so I am very glad that I made the decision to buy. I feel like it would just continue to skyrocket over the next few years as well.
  • Free Money Finance’s readers provide some excellent rebalancing advice when using index funds.
  • George via a reader story at Get Rich Slowly¬†talks about how he finally found balance in his spending and saving. This is definitely something that I’ve been working on over the last few years and I am getting better at/closer to.
