Although this winter has been cooler than those in recent years, we haven’t received much snowfall. Today a storm is supposed to drop a few inches in the region. I suppose I should be thankful though that we’ve only gotten a dusting to an inch of snow so far this season.
How are things in your region? Are you going to spend a portion of your weekend shoveling your house out from the winter wonderland? Or are things more hospitable in your neck of the woods?
The Week In Review
Thursday we had our first ever guest post written by Kyle James from Rather-be-shopping.com. In case you missed it, the post was 5 Tips for Turning Junk into Cash and it’s a great post. You should check it out if you ever plan on selling stuff that you have lying around the house.
Be sure to check out the $999.99 giveaway. It runs through the end of the month, so you still have time to enter.
Lastly, it seems that The Frugal Path has been nominated as one of the Top Personal Finance Blogs of 2012 hosted by One Smart Dollar. If you get a chance, please stop over there and vote for your favorite personal finance blog. There are some really great blogs represented, so I feel honored to be counted among them.
This week there were plenty of great posts written. Here are five that I really enjoyed:
- Budget and the Beach wrote: Designing Your Dream Job. For me I’d love to host the American version of Till Debt do You Part. Gail does a great job and I’m not sure that I could fill her shoes, but I would love to help others get out of debt.
- Sicorra at Tackling Our Debt wrote a great piece about how to Market Your Small Business on a Shoestring Budget.
- Most New Year’s resolutions have probably failed, but the Savvy Scot explains The Importance of Budgeting in Financial New Year’s Resolutions.
- Kyle James wrote another guest post for Glenn at Monster Piggy Bank – The First Child: Opportunities for Savings. This is a must read for new or soon-to-be parents. Babies are expensive, but you can save some dough by following these tips.
- Last year I left my twenties behind. I wish I had followed some of the advice posted on Eyes on the Dollar- Money Decisions to Make in Your Twenties.
I hope that everyone has a safe warm weekend. If you have to drive in the snow, take it slow. We had some bad pileups recently because of whiteouts and I’d hate for more people to get hurt because of the weather.
