Weekly Roundup

I hope that everyone is enjoying their weekend. I am one week away from my vacation, and I am counting down the minutes. This week I had money saving choices on the brain. On Monday, I shared some of the things that I would not do to save money. On Wednesday, I asked why you would set the bar low for any goal in your life, but especially a savings goal. On Thursday, I shared about teaming up with the website Money Saving Pro to help people save time and money. On Friday I shared the top ten things that I do to save money, and none of them include saving my cat’s hair. On Tuesday, I appeared on AOL Jobs and shared when it made sense to sleep with the boss.

Reads I Enjoyed This Week:

  1. Debt Debs shared some great analogies between personal finance and marine life. I always love getting a different perspective on what could be a very mundane topic.
  2. My friend Cat over at Budget Blonde talked about changing things up when they aren’t working.
  3. Cat also had a great post on Frugal Rules about hitting rock bottom.
  4. Michelle at Fit is the New Poor shared what you should do when you get in a slump.
  5. The last one is not necessarily a read but a watch. J. Money shared on Budgets are Sexy his video and money saving tip. The video is ridiculous; however, the message is great!

I would like to give a big thank you to Eyes on the Dollar, Budget and the Beach, Young Adult Money and How to Save Money for featuring my posts this week. I am off to the pool to chill out and will likely indulge in a margarita or two later in the day. 🙂

What do you have planned this weekend? Have you heard or seen any back to school ads yet? Do you feel like it seems too soon to hear these?

She realized that the key to long-term personal financial success is a commitment to financial fitness and making smart financial choices. Through her blog, Financially Blonde, her book, Train Your Way To Financial Fitness, her podcast, Martinis and Your Money and The Financial Gym, Shannon is committed to making financial fitness fun, easy and accessible for everyone.
