Monday Morning Link Love

Welcome to the Monday morning edition of link love, courtesy of the holiday here in the US. I hope you are enjoying time with your family this weekend as I am and please hug a serviceman or servicewoman today!

With that, here are some of my favorite articles from the past week:

My Two Dollars: Are You Ready To Manage Your Parents’ Money and Healthcare? Nope. My family didn’t really talk about stuff like this – I am going to have to try and break the ice with my parents soon.

Plonkee Money: I Should Choose Frugal Over Cheap For Appliances. I struggle with frugal vs cheap too and it seems Plonkee is starting to get a grip on it.

Single Guy Money: Here’s The Best Picture I’ve Seen All Year. He did it! Paid off the monster car loan. :) Yay!

Gather Little By Little: The Emotional Snowball. I really love this analogy. Even though I do interest order, I can find highs in the little milestones.

No Credit Needed: Looking Back – Ten Years Ago. This was part of a writing project and a great idea. I am scared to think about my finances ten years ago though… 1998… hmm.

Remodeling this Life: A Life Of Action. I have been feeling this way too – I need to do instead of just think. I have been unpacking those final few boxes that are hanging around, hanging pictures on the walls, and just… living.

Master Your Card: What I Think Of Dave Ramsey. Although I love the idea behind the snowball I don’t implement it in the same way Ramsey does. And Ramsey certainly has his share of critics.

Are You Going To Be This Way… : Does Anyone Ever Get Over Being Bullied? This is much more parenting than finance, but it was a shocking story to me and I’m still upset reading it. I just imagine it one of my children and I want to cry. So I’ll also leave you with a more finance-oriented post from the same blog, I Don’t Wanna Work. I have a similar (but not the same) situation and many times, I don’t want to either.

This Wasn’t In The Plan: I Finally Got Walgreens To Work For Me. I have been a failure at CVS so I think I will try Walgreens too. I want free toiletries, darnit!

Wise Bread (Philip Brewer) : Pay Attention. Just – yes. I love Philip’s stuff.

The Bright Side Of Debt: My Emergency Fund’s New Home. I had to do something similar, although ING is where I “hid” mine since I don’t have ATM access to it. Out of sight, out of mind…

  1. Thank you for the link! I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was one of those long drives rambling trains of thought that I had to get down as soon as I walked in the door. I was hopeful it made a little sense :)

  2. Many thanks for the link love on behalf of Kristy and myself!



  3. Thanks for the mention! That is a beautiful picture isn’t it?
