       My article, “A Closer Look at a 100% Diversified Stock Portfolio” was included in the most recent Carnival of Personal Finance hosted by Free From Broke. Here are some of the best posts this week, in my opinion:

       Also, J.D. Roth at Get Rich Slowly had a great post about When Less is More: The Importance of Perceived Value. J.D. has some great thoughts here, and value is the big difference between being frugal and being cheap.


  1. Thanks for linking back to the carnival!

  2. re: “frugality is the best strategy for our future.” – I would agree! Or at least what frugality can represent – that is, living within one’s budget. A point I like to make is that being frugal does not mean living a spartan lifestyle, just understanding the limits of your finances.

  3. Very true, William! I like to look at frugality as making sure you get the best value out of each dollar—never waste money.
