It’s been a while since I hit the feed reader–I mean a long, long while! I’ve been busy working through the holidays both at my full time job and here at Frugal Dad, but on the occasional breaks in action I have made it a point to surf through the feed reader to read up on some of my favorite blogs. Here are a few articles that caught my eye.
- Jeff shares 20 ways to trim your budget featuring several tried and true ways to cut back a little on spending. @My Super-Charged Life
- I agree with most of these ten predictions for 2009. The only one I question is “2009 will be the best year for individual savings this decade.” I can’t help but feel that as soon as things begin to turn around people will begin to spend wildly again. Have we really learned our lesson? I hope the results prove Trent right. @The Simple Dollar
- My Dollar Plan shares a story about donating bodily fluids for cash. Now that’s a side hustle I’d like to avoid if possible! @My Dollar Plan
- Can you think of 20 things that rock about being debt free? NCN can! We are not quite there yet, but I can just imagine we’ll share many of these same sentiments. My personal favorite was the first one listed, “I now live in the present, and not in the past.” @No Credit Needed
- Did you hear that Simple Mom has started a new book club forums? I was already on board when she shared the news, but when I heard the first selection was Your Money or Your Life I was hooked! @Simple Mom
- A beautiful post from Sara provides some thoughts on how to stay in the moment. As a guy who frequently has his head in the clouds dreaming up my next blog post, or thinking about something weeks down the road, this really hit home. @On Simplicity
- Ron gives some advice on tax breaks when refinancing your home. We are not in the refinance market, rather the new purchase market, but a few of the breaks are still relevant. @The Wisdom Journal.
- Marc and Angel remind us to be who we were born to be. Are you living your dreams, or dreams someone else had for you? @Marc and Angel Hack Life
