Diamonds in the Rough Roundup 10/31/14

It’s been a while since I was able to post a link round up so this is long overdue.  It’s been a crazy few weeks with a lot going on at work, hearing about my high school classmate passing away from leukemia and a busy time on the religious calendar as well.  I should be able to get back to my regularly scheduled posting.  Here are some great posts I read this past week:

-Relative Materialism: Redefining Need by The Broke and Beautiful Life:  Very eye opening post about how our possessions somehow seem to grow and grow as time goes on.

Should You Wait to Tell Your Children They’re Rich by Catherine Alford:  Great post on if and when you should tell your kids how much wealth you have.

Money Advice I Would Tell My Younger Self by Making Sense of Cents:  I’m sure we all wish we could go back in time and punch our younger selves in the face or something of that nature.  Here are some more milder pieces of advice to give your younger self.

Overheard at the Coffee Shop by Budgets Are Sexy:  A series of funny (and not so funny) conversations overheard at the coffee shop.  Funny stuff.

Do You Have the Right Money Mindset to Get Rich? by Financial Samurai:  Great summary about what it takes to be wealthy without trying to win the lottery.

Open Enrollment Deserves Your Full Attention.  Here’s why by 20somethingfinance:  Open enrollment season is upon us, and it’s a time to review your benefits and make sure you’re taking full advantage of them.  If not, you’re just giving money back to your company.
