I haven’t done a link love post in a long time. I had the wedding (not mine), and then NYC, and then recuperating from NYC. I’m sad that I am home to write this one, because I should be in Toronto at CPFC12. Not only was it far too expensive for a last minute flight (I’m a procrastinator) but more importantly, I wasn’t able to take the Friday off like I thought I would be able to do.
So while I hang out here, I hope all of my bloggy buddies at CPFC are having tons of fun.
In the meantime, I’m trying to make my weekend full of relaxation. Last weekend I had a lot of catching up to do, so this weekend is the first one, really, since I graduated that I can just enjoy.
It’s cold out and fall is coming so I can enjoy wearing a sweater and hanging out reading a book and napping and it’s hopefully going to be glorious.
I’ve also been catching up a bit on my blog reading, so here’s my favorite posts for the week:
Jake at iHeartBudgets posted about when he first realized that money had power (when he was 7!)
DC at Young Adult Money posted about reaching goals by breaking them up into smaller goals. This is especially something I want to do with my ongoing goals.
Mr. CBB at Canadian Budget Binder posted about multitasking, and whether it saves or wastes employer time. I think it wastes time, because it sacrifices quality of work if successful.
John at Frugal Rules posted about the envelope budget system and why he prefers it. I must admit that I’ve never used it, because I don’t like cash, but I can see the value in it.
Money Smart Guides discusses frugal dating. While I can appreciate wanting to save money where possible, I think that it’s fine to splurge on some things, and dates can be one of those things.
Jeremy at Modest Money posts about catering your blog to your readership, which I think is extremely important. Unfortunately it’s not always easy and even the most popular blogs fail sometimes.
Kim at Eyes on the Dollar tells us about life lessons from her five year old.
Bridget at Money After Graduation made me laugh with her post about debt and dating. Is debt a deal breaker for you?
Alright. I would normally go on to recognize commenting, sharing, or tweeps I interact with, but I am going to go enjoy my weekend.
