Minting Nickels admits to having two emergency funds in Double the Funds, Double the Fun. I don’t have any!

I follow 20’s Finances and Corey’s income reports. His December 2011 Goals and Income Report provides a great insight into his blog and his blogging goals.

Your Finances Simplified sparks a great discussion with If You Want Your Child To Be Successful, Don’t Do This! 

Yes, I am Cheap says We’re Gonna Rock 2012. I agree!
