Weekly Roundup # 2

Links to 5 great personal finance blog posts from around the web.

“Get-Started-Now Guide to Becoming Self-Employed”: why everyone can start their own business and work for themselves.

“Budget Travel Tips for the Frugal Traveler”: a list of basic tips on saving money on travel—I don’t agree with all of them (i.e. using a City Pass is actually not that great a deal in NYC or Paris), but there are some gems in here.

“Start Small and Make Saving Automatic”
: baby steps to building an emergency fund from nothing.

“Running as Transportation”: I love this guy, he managed to retire young after saving 75% of his income for just 5 years. His secret was learning to live on a really, really low budget. This article is about considering running as a good way to get from place to place.

“Calculating the True Cost of Vacations”: makes a good point about the money you save while going on vacation.

  1. The budget trips was good. I just came back from a weekend away and was really surprised how much we saved just by buying muesli and keeping some milk in the fridge in the hotel room. It's a good one to save on, too, because it doesn't cut into social meals. No-one is awake at breakfast at a convention anyway.
