This Week in Personal Finance – January 22, 2010

by Jason on January 22, 2010

What a week.  We closed on our house last week and are still living with many unpacked boxes – but that’s OK, it’s just great to be in and sleeping there!

It’s been hard to post this past week since I didn’t plan ahead and have my internet hooked the day we moved in – so therefore you’ve seen very little posting from me this week.  We should be hooked up by this weekend so I’m excited to get back to a “regular” posting schedule!

At any rate, This Week in Personal Finance takes a look at interesting articles, posts and news from the past week in the personal finance arena.  Give these articles a click!

I love Visual Economics.  They always do a stellar job converting interesting facts into neat little graphs. This week they take a look at the question Where Is America’s Debt?

The Digerati Life found an interesting chart about the Financial Risks and the People You Trust.  It’s not a surprising chart, but an interesting one none-the-less.

This is a great take from Free Money Finance regarding the 6 Steps to a Great Retirement as highlighted in Consumer Reports.  Also, call me crazy, but Maybe You Only Need So Much to Be Happy in Retirement – this is something I try to reinforce on this site – it’s not the size of the accounts that will bring happiness!

Mrs. Micah does a phenomenal job putting together a mammoth list of 2009 tax deductions and credits!  Wow!

Gather Little by Little offers up some famous money quotes!

Steve Jobs is at it again – trying to change the landscape of media and entertainment through his technology – will it work?

Ok – totally unrelated to personal finace, but I thought this was awesome!  Take a look at TechEBlog’s 10 Strangest Lego Creations.

Have a great weekend everybody!
