Wow, is it already that time of the week again? Seems like just yesterday I was writing the weekly roundup for last week. One benefit to staying busy is it helps time go by fast. One downside to staying so busy is time goes by too fast. I need to remind myself to come up for air ever-so-often, and stop to smell the roses.

It was an exciting week, professionally, as I started writing for Wise Bread. I’ve always enjoyed the community at Wise Bread, particularly their forums, so this has proven to be a great opportunity. I also wrapped up that proposal I’ve been working on for a freelance gig and shipped off the first two sections of work for the full manuscript. Hope to hear approval this week so I can finish the entire project by the end of May.
Here are a few of my favorite articles from the past week:
Check New Tires for this Code Before They Cause an Accident. Wasn’t aware tires had a “born on” date until I read this. Good info! (@My Two Dollars)
How to Shop at a Farmers Market. I hope to find a good farmer’s market in our area to start buying locally grown produce. This looks like a great guide for navigating the market! (@Cincinatti Locavore)
Sixteen Hardcore Tactics for Lowering Your Monthly Bills. Great ways to lower your monthly bills! (@The Simple Dollar)
Don’t forget, if you would like to ask Frugal Dad a question, submit it to last week’s Sunday Conversation comments and check back tomorrow for my response. Have a great weekend!
