Hey, I just met you, and this is Lazy... get these fast finance fixes and mail me, maybe?

Personal Finance Links (Media Edition)

Written by

I have quite a few thoughts to catch up on... Here goes:

  • Thanks Washington Post - The Washington Post wrote about me a little over a week ago. Debuting in section A can't be a bad thing, right? In case you are curious, the Washington Post was referring to my article on how to Save Money at Restaurants.
  • Lazy Man Interviewed - Studenonmics interviewed me. If you want to know a little more about me, check out the interview.
  • How to Get Your Product Mentioned - Each day 5 or 6 people write me to tell me about their great new product. I obviously can't give everyone the space and mention everything. To be honest, there are a lot of things not worth mentioning. However, one way to at least get my ear is to send me a sample of the product. Then I can at least give it a shot and give my honest opinion. It's even better when you give me a hand-written note like Josh did.

    With that in mind, I got sent an EZ-Clean Rack. The pitch goes like this. Put your bacteria-riddled sponge or rag in this plastic rack and either microwave it or put it through the dishwasher. It sounds great. I have two basic criticisms... 1) I don't have a way to measure bacteria, so I don't know if it's really helping. 2) I have been putting my sponges in the dishwasher and my rags in the laundry - no EZ-Clean Rack necessary. Maybe it's more helpful for the microwave solution, but I can imagine putting those little pizza box tables upside-down to suspend the bench or rag. I apologize that I didn't have a chance to get back to him with these points before I went to press with this mini-review, but if I have these questions others will.

Enough with the small talk, let's get to this week's links:

  1. Congrats on making the Washington Post. Too bad they could have linked to the blogs that were mentioned, though – to make is easy for people to find the articles.

    They did in this article, but it doesn’t say A14 in the print :-).

    Nonetheless, I think that they should have posted a more in depth article.
