Best of Blogs for Week of March 14th

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

RetireBy40 has a different take on the question Save for Retirement First or Children’s Education?
While I don't put college savings above retirement myself, given his circumstances I don't think his choice is too bad.

Adventures of Sam points to  a living wage calculator from MIT

The Big Picture shares  60 Years of Budget Deficits in One Chart
and I think its good to keep things in perspective and compare recent deficits to WWII (not to say I think almost continuous deficit spending is great).
Slate has a calculator to help you decide if Amazon Primes new $99 cost is worth it or not.   But I'd point out the calculator is fairly crude and just figures cost of shipment per item and doesn't consider free shipping that Amazon has outside of Prime.
