Best of Blogs for Week of August 23rd

Every Friday afternoon I share some of the more interesting or notable posts that I have seen in the personal finance blogs and other sources for the past week

Wealth Lion lists what he thinks are The Ten Worst Money Mistakes Anyone Can Make

The Big Picture has a chart showing recent 10 years of  Luxury Item Investing Returns
but this should not be interpreted to mean you can make a lot of money simply buying fine wine or classic cars.

MyMoneyBlog looks at  LendingClub vs. Prosper Loan Performance Comparison, 9-Month Update
and then compares LendingClub and Prosper vs. High Yield Junk Bonds

Economix reports that College Costs: Rising, Yet Often Exaggerated
The chart shows the net costs after aid over 20 years.   Looks like public 4 year schools went up about 2.6% and private was up 1.3% but those are AFTER inflation so its still not good.  However i find it interesting that 2 year schools are basically flat after accounting for inflation.
