Free Money Finance is hosting a March Madness tournament again-- 64 great posts from the past year facing off in a series of match-ups until the winner is crowned and gets $500 for the charity of their choice. Stop by to read some great posts and vote for your favorites (in the first round, I'm playing in Game 16 and Game 24.)
From the Psychology of Money department, Get Rich Slowly had a post this week called How Shopping Momentum Leads to More Shopping, highlighting research that found that after someone decides to buy an item, they spend less time deliberating before deciding to buy a second (or third, or fourth) item.
The Carnival of Personal Finance was at Broke Grad Student. Some highlights:
- Wedding As Status Symbol (Feminist Finance)
- What Do I REALLY want? (GRACEful Retirement)
- Socially Responsible Investing: Part I- Where Do I Begin? (Greener Pastures: Personal Finance)
