The theme of today’s roundup is inspired by the first post mentioned in the roundup below: discretionary spending. It’s fun to hear what others spend their “left-over” money on each month.
I’m a little strange in that I don’t really have a hobby. I have a video game system with exactly one game. I have golf clubs with cobwebs surrounding the bag. I’m not a car guy. I’m not a “techie.” I don’t collect music, or DVDs, or books.
Here lately, any left-over money is going to a “home improvement” fund. We hope to soon add gutters and a deck to our backyard. What about you? What do you spend your discretionary money on?

What We Spend Money On: Video Games. This is still a relatively new site, but is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I enjoy watching a young couple make the right moves with money. In this post, they share a little about their discretionary spending – a category we should all have when properly accounted for in our budgets. (@Couple Money)
Never Cosign a Loan Unless You Want to Pay It Yourself. The pitfalls of cosigning have been well document, but this is an excellent reminder. I’d rather give someone money than cosign. (@The Simple Dollar)
