Weekly Roundup

Weekly Roundup

Life is about choices

This week, I was focused on choices. On Monday, I shared my story about the difficulty in choosing physical health and how the financial health process if very similar. Tuesday I appeared on Young Adult Money sharing 5 ways you can save money on groceries. On Wednesday I talked about why I choose to blog and how much I love the personal finance blogging community. Yesterday I shared my top ten money saving choices that I have made thus far as well as an awesome veggie chili made with quinoa for those who choose to go vegan.

Here is what I enjoyed reading this week:

  1. Cat from Budget Blonde shared the 4 lessons she is going to teach those cute twins on Young Adult Money.
  2. Stefanie from The Broke and Beautiful Life discussed whether or not you should buy or rent dresses.
  3. Grayson from Debt Roundup asked about personal responsibility where debt is concerned after an interesting comment from one of his readers.
  4. Shannon from The Heavy Purse shared her thoughts on whether parents should help pay for college for their kids or focus on retirement.
  5. Natalie from The Finance Girl shared 19 ways you can improve yourself which I believe really does improve your finances.

A shout out to my friend John from Frugal Rules and Sprout Wealth who has now taken on another blog, Wise Dollar, and I am psyched that he will be sharing in this endeavor with my other blog friend, Laurie from The Frugal Farmer. Can’t wait to read what they are going to be writing about over there!

What are you choosing to do this weekend?

Shannon is a financial planner who left a “traditional” financial services firm to start her own company, The Financial Gym, because she felt traditional financial services firms did not have the tools or resources to help people in their 20s and 30s who are starting out and trying to build assets while also managing debt. 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.
