Happy 2012 everybody, hope you all had a blast. I know I did. My new year resolution is to pay off the rest of our credit cards by the end of 2012, and so far, we are right on track. We’re trying to save up for a down payment on a house in the process so it’s tough but I think we can manage. I know the rule about paying off all your debts first before saving but it doesn’t hurt to have some kind of emergency funds right? We decided to not use our credit cards at all if possible(easier said than done) and rely more on the debit card to keep our debts under control.

Monday is here again to start off the new week. It’s amazing how fast time goes by as you grow older don’t you think? I remember when I was younger back in grade school, the year would drag on for so long. It was like time was standing still, and there were no bills to worry about and no work to stress over. How I miss those good old days. Okay enough reminiscence, here are some of my top picks of the week.

Miss T presents Make Your Own Beauty Products – Sick of spending a small fortune on beauty products when you’re not even sure what’s in them half the time? Have a go at making your own beauty treatments! You can make some quick and easy beauty treats using ingredients that you’ve already got at home.

Jen @ Master the Art of Saving presents Buying the Cow When You Can get the Milk for Free – Sometimes it just makes sense to buy the cow even when you can get the milk for free. Other times, we just make ourselves look silly or wasteful. Like how I only drink bottled water…my picky habits cost us money.

John Border presents How does 401k Work – The article helps put in perspective how does 401k work and the advantages and disadvantages of investing 401k.

Jacob @ My Personal Finance Journey presents Professional Liability Insurance – Is it Something You Really Need?  – In today’s sue-happy society, it’s essential that we safeguard ourselves against the financial loss that can happen if a lawsuit is brought against your business. One possible way to protect yourself is by making sure you have business insurance. This post examines the risk landscape in today’s society in an attempt to help you determine whether or not business liability insurance is right for you.

yourfinancessimplified presents I Am the Credit Card King – Of my $336,100 in total available credit, I have used only $5,920.14.  I should really say I have used zero since the balance is paid off in full every month.  But, credit report updates work in 30 day arrears and my last statement balance was $5,920.14.
