The Whole December Weekend Roundup

December has been a busy month, and I've neglected to post my favorite reads for weeks now! I hope your holiday season has been full of good times and good memories.

Some of my favorite reads from around the web:

At The Penny Hoarder, a funny and informative article called I Get Paid To Buy Beer.  I have worked in mystery shopping before, and this twist on mystery shopping is a great way to make a little extra cash if you aren't too old (like me.)

Over at, a reader asks Why Doesn't the GI Bill Cover My Full Tuition? The GI Bill is a great deal, but it won't cover everything depending on the school your choose.

Not entirely financial, New Year's Resolutions for Husbands and Wives is a good read and it does have financial applications.  In an unfortunate Catch-22, couples with good relationships are better able to make good financial decisions, and solid finances can contribute to a better relationship.  Keeping your marriage on solid ground is one part of keeping your finances good, too.

We military folks tend to travel a lot, so I liked the info in 9 Secrets That Hotels Don't Want You To Know.  I especially like the idea about asking for new blankets - I hate hotel blankets.  I think they are scary and gross.  I will now disinfect stuff when I get to a hotel too, because that seems to make a lot of sense.

I can't believe it is 2011 already.  Here's to a great year!
