Sunday Money Roundup – Patriots Go For 13 Edition.

Yep, it’s time again for a few links that caught my eye this week. While you check these out, I will be waiting to see if the New England Patriots can win their 13th straight this season. Normally, I don’t really care about football – and to be honest, I still don’t. But I like seeing a hometown team going undefeated, so I hope the game goes as planned today. And to those of you who say they cheated to get here, they got busted during Game 1 for that…so what happened during the last 12? 🙂

I’ve Paid For This Twice Already”¦ says that There Will Always Be Someone Who Believes the Opposite. I could not agree more, that’s why it is so important for everyone to make their own decisions and not rely only on the opinion of others.

Plonkee Money wants to know who you are donating to for Christmas. But why is that so many people tend to donate only during Christmas? It’s weird, no? (I’m not saying that’s you plonkee, I am just thinking out loud :-))
