The DoughRoller Weekly Roundup ( Edition), a personal finance website that allows you to manage your money more effectively, has recently launched a new feature that can help users set and meet their financial goals.  The online fundraising tool allows family and friends to directly contribute money through Paypal and/or Amazon into one centralized location which should eliminate any problems you have with collecting funds from multiple sources.

With so many money managing tools out there, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to come up with new ideas but I think Budget Pulse has done an admiral job here.  Donations, charitable contributions and school fundraisers can be a big headache, especially when you’re the one in charge so if you find yourself managing these good deeds, you should definitely have a look at Budget Pulse.

Plenty of good money articles this week.  Let’s take the plunge.
