The big news this week was my guest post over at Get Rich Slowly last Sunday. I enjoyed the comments so much! Kyle and I even each got an internet coincidence out of it – GRS is really popular! ;)
Other than that, just tons of work this week. Kyle is writing feverishly and I’m putting in lots of hours in the lab preparing for an experiment with my collaborators. The only break in our routine was a dentist appointment, which went smoothly and our wallet is only $252 lighter. :)

nicoleandmaggie made a whole post out of her comment on my post You Should Spend More and Save Less (Especially Grad Students) on income smoothing (great to hear about this from an economist!).
2 Copper Coins recommended Eliminate Eating Out for Convenience with Batch Cooking in their new to us section.
Matt Becker from Mom and Dad Money provides a temperate approach on my post that is neither pro- nor anti-credit cards: “I think you need to take a balanced approach with things like this. Obviously some people have a lot of trouble using them responsibly and would be better off leaving them alone. Others, like you guys, can use them responsibly and take advantage of the benefits they offer. I do hesitate just a little bit when I see people speak so strongly about the benefits of churning, not necessarily because I think they aren’t doing it right but more because it tends towards the side of potentially getting people into trouble. The main focus always needs to be on the long-term goals, not the short-term wins.”
