Here's several recommended articles from those sites that share links with Plugged in Finance. I hope they are of use to you.
The Digerati Life. "Pet Care Costs: How Much Does Your Dog or Cat Cost."
Free Money Finance. "What Do You Plan to do in Retirement."
Fund My Mutual Fund had this CNBC video on his website. I find it very interesting that something bad in the markets may be lurking.
Dual Income No Kids. "Track Investments With Mint.com." Article shows cool red/green color coding comparison of individual investor's performance relative to broader indices.
My Open Wallet. "Unintended Consequences: 401Ks Mean Fewer Jobs for Younger People." Excellent article. In a tangential way, I infer from this article an increased importance in the need for universal health care for U.S. citizens to help ensure a stronger socio-economic safety net.
