Sunday Money Roundup – Monks In Burma Edition.

It is estimated at at least 100,000 people have died in Burma from the cyclone that hit there last week. After Katrina and 9-11, the entire world came to our aid, and now it’s our turn to do something for these people who are getting no help from their own oppressive government. If you have a few bucks, consider donating them to the International Burmese Monks Organization, which is opening the doors of all their monasteries to house and feed the homeless, sick and injured. I sent them some money, and I am sure they could use a lot more if you have some to spare. Thanks so much.

  • Frugal Dad says “With any (job) offer there are tangible and intangible benefits to consider, and it is the intangible ones that are usually the most difficult to evaluate. When I’ve gone on interviews in the past I have used the opportunity to learn a bit about the health of the organization by paying close attention to the work environment.” Great stuff here, as usual.
  • Five Cent Nickel talks about reducing your debt by using micropayments.
  • Money Ning is celebrating his investments going from a Yield of -99.79% to +9.99% This Year So Far!
  • No Credit Needed has a conversation about store-branded credit cards. My favorite line of this article? “Cool thing about cash – no approval necessary.”
  • My Dollar Plan wants you to plan ahead with 6 steps to secure your financial future.
  • Flexo over at Consumerism Commentary talks about the proposed gas tax and asks “Do you think it will do anything for the economy this summer?” I don’t, mainly because none of the candidates are going to be President until next year, not next month – so it would never happen because of what they say they would like to do. It’s political pandering, at best. Remember the kid in high school running for class president who promised Coke machines in every classroom, knowing it would never happen? Me too…kind of sounds familiar.
