Some particularly good posts of the last week for your mid-August Sunday:

Thought-provoking piece at Consumerism Commentary about when/whether to let companies get free advertising on our clothes.

Pinyo walks us step-by-step through an encounter with a Craigslist scammer. I’ve heard the general outline of such scams before, but having it laid out e-mail by e-mail shows you how people get to that place. Fortunately, Pinyo was suspicious enough that he called it off.

David of My Two Dollars reports that houses are actually selling for $1 because banks (who foreclosed and are now stuck with the house) are so desperate to get rid of them.

This Remodeling This Life post on DIY Refrigerator Repair scares me a bit, but if you’re the type who can take things apart without fear, it looks useful.

Did you give up a good job for someone only to break up with them? Why not sue for $150,000? Oh, you’re a decent person…well then nevermind.

Congrats to Clever Dude, who turned 30! He’s got some goals for the coming decade.

And happy blogiversary to Credit Withdrawal! Also featured on that site last week was the Carnival of Financial Goals #9. One of my favorite themes ever, he went with a variation on his “Demotivating” posters and went with the “Evil Overlord” posters instead.

Not that anyone would want the $1 house, but still… a dollar? Thanks for the mention!

Hi Mrs M- thanks. I will have to check these out. A $1 house and folks who sue people for taking them from their intended career path sounds like entertaining reading.
