Friday Roundup: Budgets, Couples, and The New Year

by Kristina on January 6, 2012 · 4 comments

Happy First Friday of the New Year DINKS.  I would like to personally wish you all the best of love, health, and money in 2012.  Today we are rounding up our favourite posts for you from our favourite personal finance bloggers around the web as well as from the websites in our new partnerships.

I hope you had a great first week of 2102. I certainly did. This week I only worked from Wednesday to Friday because the bank was closed on both Monday and Tuesday.  To top it all off my boss was on vacation all week; so overall I had an excellent start to 2012.

Enjoy these posts DINKS and have a great weekend!
