I have had a chance to catch up on my RSS reading this week. These are a few of my favorites, some are newer, some are older but all are worth reading.
Squawkfox asks whether Frugal Living is a Fad? What do you think? Has the economy changed the way you think about money and once times get better will you go back to your old ways?
The Simple Dollar has a post that I wish I could tattoo on the inside of my children’s eyelids, Stop Trying To Impress Other People. It is one of his 14 rules that govern his financial and personal life.
Frugal Dad had me spellbound with his post about a family who lives totally off the grid in New Zealand. I used to dream about doing something like this. Does that make me a hermit?
I’ve Paid For This Twice Already makes her case for reducing debt before saving money. I would agree AFTER you have a minimal emergency fund. If you don’t have at least some money in savings, you will end up with more debt rather than less.
Christian Personal Finance reviews the book 10 minutes, 10 months, 10 years. It’s an interesting decision making process that can easily be used for making financial decisions as well as personal ones.
MoneyNing asks what to do when money conflicts with ethics. Do you choose to stick to your ethics when it comes to money decisions?
Sound Money Matters has some great tips for working at home. You can be more productive at home with less distractions if you stick to these tips. I know I could get much more work done at home than when I was at work.
Devastate Boredom is a new blog for me but she offers a great cheat sheet for finding organic produce. Her tips are good not only for finding organic but also on saving money on fruits and vegetables.
Debt Free Adventure is another new blog for my reader. His tips for keeping his Emergency fund for Emergencies is a classic. One of the hardest things to do is decide what is an emergency and what is not. He has 6 tips for how to leave your emergency fund alone.
I hope that you enjoy these articles as much as I did. Have a great weekend.
