I’m thrilled this week to be included in a new blog carnival, The Carnival of Pecuniary Delights hosted by Pecunarities. I really enjoyed this carnival (and not just because I was in it!) because all of the posts were neatly organized into useful categories. Please check it out and follow this carnival next week where it will be hosted by Wise Bread.
Here are a few other interesting reads I’ve stumbled across recently:
Check out the thoughtful post “The End of Excess: Is This Crisis Good for America” by Kurt Andersen in Time magazine.
I find it quite sad to learn at Smart Spending that More pets face ‘economic euthanasia’ during this recession. It is a stark reminder of the need to really think about whether or not your family can afford a pet.
I was beating myself up a little about my (failed) New Year’s Resolutions until I read this Zen Habits post, “You’re Not Perfect, So What? Five Steps to Reclaim Your New Year’s Resolution.”
For my Minnesota readers: Travels With Children has come up with a price breakdown of family activities in the Twin Cities metro area in her post “The Cost of Fun.” Be sure to also check out the great follow-up post “What’s in a Membership?” When money is tight it’s important to make sure you make the most of it during family outings.
