Sunday Money Roundup – They Are Destroying My House Edition.

They are working on the landscaping of my apartment building this week, and for days now the building has been shaking with the concrete removal. Someone make it stop! Supposedly they are making us more “green” but it sure doesn’t look like it outside right now. I wonder how much my landlord is spending…and if my rent is going to go up to pay for it!

My Two Dollars took part in 2 money carnivals this week:

Carnival of Personal Finance #134 over at Mrs. Micah. My post “Tips On How To Avoid Internet And Financial Scams” was chosen as an Editor’s Choice, thanks for that!

    Yeah, I hate to say it, but the rent will probably go up… Someone has to pay for it!

    As for your retirement, since you don’t have the option of a 401(k), you could always go with the SEP IRA.

    Thanks for the mention. 🙂

    I know how you feel. My neighbor bought the house next door (we are attached) about 2 months ago and they are redoing everything inside. They have been at it everyday, including Christmas and Sundays…

  4. I hope they don’t start too early in the morning.

    Doesn’t sound like they’re making YOU more green, but more green for them $$$.

    Thanks for the linkey.
