Links Around The Web: Mortgages, Fraud and Being Different

As we scour the interwebs searching for useful information and articles, we come across some really good finds that we’d like to share with you. Starting today, we’ll be posting a  round-up of  links from the previous week every Monday with sound advice or inspiration that we think you’ll benefit from.

Top Articles of The Week:

Adjustable Rate Mortgage vs. Fixed Rate Mortage.
@Moolanomy weighs out the options between the two different types of mortgages and helps you decide which might be better for you in the long run.

How to Detect Online Credit Card Fraud
This article by @DINKSfinance outlines some of the ways in which your credit card information may be stolen online. It’s important to be on the lookout for these frauds and to protect yourself!

Needs vs. Wants
Quite often, when faced with a decision for a big purchase, we find some way to justify the need for the item to ourselves. In this post,  @MoneyMatters talks about the difference between needs and wants and how to be more mindful of our purchasing decisions.

How to Priortize Paying Your Bills When Money is Tight
Sometimes, the paychecks that we bring home are just enough or a little less than what we need to cover all our bills. In these situations, heavy prioritization is needed in order to make ends meet. This article by @sooverdebt outlines a checklist to help you out.

Think Different
Lastly, we’d like to leave you with something  uplifting and inspirational. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, was an inspiration to the ReadyForZero team. He was a great innovator who always encouraged others to push the status quo, something that we greatly value and keep in mind as we build solutions to help you get out of debt. With his passing away last week, we’d like to share something with you that reminds us to stay motivated and keep innovating.
