We’ve had some guests from out of town, so time has been at a premium this weekend. I’m lucky to get this out at all.Â While I’m here, I’d like to give some thanks to all the fathers out there on father’s day.
MoneySmartLife highlights that Chase says a credit limit is an opportunity. They bill it as a way to spend more money, but I really think it is an opportunity. Having more credit, as long as it’s not used, can help your credit rating.

I successfully bought CNET from 1998-2003 hitting it at some highs and some lows. By buying a lot of shares on the low it made me enough to offset the losses. In the end, I feel it was an advantage to know the stock.
Five Cent Nickel writes about how movie theatres make money.
Free Money Finance gives some numbers on home assessments. I should look to see if mine is assessed at what it should be.
Mighty Bargain Hunter says a good way to make some money is to throw a party. If you’ve heard of a Tupperware party, you get the general idea. In my opinion this is not a party, it’s exploiting your friends. My fiancÃ©e has a friend that sells stuff for the Pampered Chef. We never use the stuff and it’s always way overpriced.
The Grill Maestro asks you to send him to cooking school. I voted for him. If you get a second, I suggest you do too.
Flexo at Consumerism Commentary reviews Ben Stein’s suggested portfolio. I think Ben is a very smart man. I can’t argue too much with his portfolio except that I would suggest he add some small caps via Vanguard’s VB ETF.
Lastly, I was included in a Carnival of Personal linkfest at Finance is Personal.
