The Check is in the Mail

It’s easy to be cheap and lazy by reading the free material available from all the fee services. Thanks to the Internet, they have to give you enough truth to get you to buy. If you only follow one of them (what they hope), you will definitly feel compelled to buy eventually.  If you read many of them, you will get enough pieces to do it yourself. Considering that all the good newsletters are expensive, I’d just as soon get it for free.

There are some good tips on Dolans.com today with their article The 8 Biggest Lies That You Are Being Told About Your Money. There are ten pages to this one. The first is the intro, and the last is the pitch. Your call on where to stop. I noticed that some of the points are the selling points of their competition (brokers and retirement plans), which is all I have to say about that.

Get it From the Shorts

Interesting article at InvestorsPlace.com today about how the folks that play the shorts can make you some short money on longs. I like the idea, as I’m too lazy and cheap to do shorts myself. The article is attributed to LearningMarkets.com, which appears to have some good info for those who want to learn how things works in the trading world.

Cheap Education on Being Cheap

Eventually, probably, I will have some money-saving tips on this blog. Probably even a page devoted to it. I have been looking for ways to save money as soon as I had my second penny (the first one did not inspire me as it did not go “clink” against anything yet). In the meantime, you can subscribe to http://www.dolans.com/. The are not the do-all end-all of saving money, and you will get a flood of other emails from subsribing, but in general they have some good advise for free. Being the cheap guy that I am, I never look at any of their fee services, and rarely look at their free advise as most of it is old news to me. But it may not be to you, and I did say “most”, not “all”. Any newsletter is worth my time if I get one idea or learning from it. If that is all I get for a very long stretch I will drop it, which has to do with being cheap with my time and too lazy to read everything.
