Sunday Money Roundup – Testing Out The New Life Edition.

Well, we just wrapped up our second week here in New Mexico, and so far so good. Still finding cool places to eat and hang out, which is always fun when moving to a new place. Eventually I will be happy sitting in the house and relaxing, but there is so much to do that it is hard to sit still! But when I did spend time in the house, I came across a whole bunch of great articles, and here are 10 of them that really made an impact. Oh, and there is one bonus one at the end. Enjoy!

Brip Blap has Part II of his article “I will not pay for my children’s college education“, and I mostly agree with him. My parents were well-off enough that they paid for most of mine, but if it is a battle between my retirement and their college education, well…I just don’t know what will happen.
