The week has flown by so quickly, I cannot believe it’s already Friday again. I’m going to try to finish up our income taxes this weekend, so I can make an appointment with our accountant next weekend to have her go over things to make sure I have everything done correctly.
In the meantime, here is my weekly roundup of interesting posts I’ve read in the last week:
- Mrs. Money has finally come to peace with how she’s going to go on from here having lost a friendship and fifteen-hundred dollars in Making Up $1500.
- Frugality Doesn’t Mean You Have to Deprive Yourself by Free From Broke. This is a great post which makes me realize when I was younger, I was doing the rice cakes and water diet of frugality. When you’re living below the poverty level you really don’t have much choice in the matter. Now I am able to be more sensible in my frugality, and I shouldn’t feel guilty over buying something now and again.
- Interview with Jeff Kosola over at Clarifinancial. Jeff delivers pizzas on the weekends to pay down his debt. I always enjoy reading about bloggers and some of the ways they are getting out of debt.
- Austin over at Foreigner’s Finance hosted the Carnival of Money Stories earlier this month including some beautiful pictures of the flowering sakura tree. Austin lives in Japan and teaches English. This week he shared with us How to Improve Your Credit While Living Abroad.
- I haven’t been camping in over twenty years… Money Funk shares the basic items you need for camping in Earth Day: Camping is Fun. I also need to really work on the first of 8 Simple Steps of Having an Organized Life, go on over and read the one I need to work on most, “Sort Out the Clutter”.
- Engineer Your Finances, a mere baby to the blogging world, posted his Three Month Performance Review recently. Great job!
- CJ Bowker shares his bad customer service experience with Karen at Verizon. There is no excuse for a salesperson to act like that.
