To wind up the week, I thought I would mention a few things that caught my attention that may be of interest to readers:
The AARP has compiled data and list of the top hospitals in metro areas around the U.S. It’s an interactive map and very easy to use.
J.D. at Get Rich Slowly reminds us how benign neglect of the little overhead items can cost us a bundle. In this case, it was a $1500 Frisbee!
Consumer Boomer summarizes the different strategies by which boomers can tap retirement plans with no penalty. I’m not suggesting that anyone do it, but if it becomes necessary, it makes sense to do it the right way.
Over at my Tough Money Love blog, I put together a list of tax filing tips for the procrastinator.
Pinyo of Moolanomy blog fame has launched a new project he calls “Great Nexus.” This site pulls together a diverse assortment of news and blog resources on a variety of topics, including personal finance. I recommend that you give it a test drive.
Finally, my writing appeared this week in the following carnivals:
Carnival of Pecuniary Delights (the first edition of a new carnival that features the best posts – old and new).
Carnival of Personal Finance hosted at Wide Open Wallet.
Enjoy your weekend!
