I must admit, I didn’t get as much time to read this week as I would have liked. The site had a malfunction Monday night and by the time I got that fixed on Tuesday morning, I was madly playing catch-up around the house. And I’m STILL not done Christmas shopping. Ugh.
Here are a few of the things I did find time to read this week. Enjoy!
Love, love, love We Wish You a Debt-Free Christmas at Surviving and Thriving. A must-read before you go shopping.
My son had his first holiday program this year. And that is why I laughed till I cried when I read Yet Another Reason I Will Not Get Parent of the Year: Epic Parent Fail at Frantic Mommy. While my boy was in the proper attire for the program (barely!), I DID forget my camera and camcorder.
For those of you feeling the pressures of the holiday season (see me raising my hand in the air!), read The Case Against Buying Christmas Presents at Zen Habits. Now if only I could get the rest of the world on board with this.
I love my Pyrex dishes… and I even asked for some more for Christmas… but then I started reading all of these horror stories like this one at The Consumerist about exploding Pyrex. Now I’m a little afraid of the stuff.
If you’re looking for some frugal Christmas craft projects, you’ll want to check out Frugal Upstate’s DIY: 35 Out of the Ordinary Ornaments to Make.
I had to chuckle as I thought of my own kitchen drawer clutter when I read YOU: On a Kitchen Gadget Diet at Edible Joy. I just can’t seem to resist kitchen gadgets!
I live in the woods, so I know for a fact this post is the honest truth: Read Boost Your Mental Wellness with Outdoor Nature Activities at FeelGooder.
Every single person who owns a vehicle should read Doing the Math on Paying Cash for Cars at The Simple Dollar. We’ve bought our last two vehicles with cash, and I can’t even begin to tell you how freeing it is. Trent’s post outlines the math that makes this freedom possible.
