Everything Finance Monthly Round Up: Tornado Season Is Here

Published on May 26 2013 // Written By // Finance Around The Web

Tornado season is here.  The nation watched and mourned with the residents of Moore, Oklahoma as an F-5 tornado ripped through the town and took over 20 lives, including several elementary school students.

If you live in an area prone to tornadoes, make sure to take the time to review with your family where you will take shelter.  Also have supplies available like a battery operated radio and water.  Let’s hope this isn’t an active tornado season.

Around the web, I have been reading some excellent personal finance articles.  Here are some of my favorites:

  1. Tie the Money Knot examines what to do in a sticky situation when you think your fiance may have overpaid for your engagement ring.
  2. Sustainable Life Blog comes clean about some of the financial mistakes he’s made in the last year.  What are some of your worst financial mistakes?
  3. Thinking of finding a new apartment?  Financial Samurai, a landlord for 10 years now, shares what makes the perfect tenant financially.
  4. Kudos to Money Life and More for arguing that the typical American family of 4 does not NEED $58,000 just to get by.
  5. Have you been denied credit?  That’s just one of several signs that you have too much debt according to Beating Broke.
  6. The Family CEO shares how much it cost to pay for her daughter’s junior year of college.  It’s more reasonable than I would have thought.
  7. Newlyweds on a Budget are plowing through their student loan debt! Way to go!
  8. Looking to make some money with your blog?  My Multiple Incomes explains the strategies that have worked for him.
  9. Do you have a back up plan if you’re self-employed?  Budgeting in the Fun Stuff shares hers.
  10. Life and My Finances offers 10 ways to make money from home.  Great list!
  11. Yes, I Am Cheap gives the lowdown on her various rental properties.  Great read, especially if you want to be a landlord.
  12. Overwhelmed with the idea of creating a 6 month emergency fund?  Free from Broke offers some techniques to make it easier.
  13. One Cent at a Time gives his strategies for doing his personal bookkeeping.
  14. If you need more side hustle ideas, Retire by 40 offers several fun ones.
