Weekly Review

Below is a list of posts I particularly enjoyed this week. I hope you find them interesting as well.

Wisebread - Make Your Hobby Pay Its Way by Philip Brewer
I love keeping busy with hobbies. Unfortunately, I have two problems; one problem being that two of my hobbies are expensive and the other problem is the fact that once I'm done with a project, I don't want to look at it again. Its true. I don't create anything for myself because I'm tired of looking at it when I finish it.

Being Frugal - Your Children Are Watching What Are You Teaching?
I can relate to this post because my family didn't discuss finances. My father had no idea of his parents finances until as executor of their estate he had to wade through finances. (Let me tell you, people who have lived through the depression have a habit of hiding things in strange places. If you ever have to sort through a person's estate, make sure you check in books, under lining, under carpeting, and in all other strange hiding places.) The post discusses children's idea of where money comes from and the mysterious unending source known as the ATM Machine.

Zen Habits - 14 Stress Free Ways To Kick Weight Loss In The Butt
Okay, truth is this one has nothing to do with personal finance, but we are dealing with the holiday season with all of its sweets and goodies. Before we know it, it will be time to make those resolutions.

No Credit Needed - $10 A Day Equals 3/4 Of A Million Dollars
NCN does a fantastic job with charts to help figure out how long it will take to save money. I think about all of those $10 lunches that I could have saved had I taken my lunch.
