Something you may see many other personal finance bloggers do is a weekly article roundup. These roundups highlight the blogger’s favorite articles from across the PF blog world for the past week. Well I haven’t done one in a very long time, if ever, because I’m just too lazy.
But now that I’m in the Personal Finance Network, I sort of have to do a roundup, which is a good thing because I’ve wanted to give out more links to my fellow money authors. So this first roundup will just include the PFN, while future roundups will include all other writers.

- Mr. Cheap from Quest for Four Pillars writes about Real Estate Arbitrage. If I was younger (or single), I’d consider this method, but now I’m responsible for another’s welfare (Stacie’s) and have to consider her in each decision. Oh, and I can’t make decisions by myself anymore.
