The month of May is one of the busiest months for us. Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, the end of the kids’ school year… plus gardens to start and garage sales to get ready for. It’s amazing to me how fast the month flies.
I haven’t had as much time to read my favorite blogs as I would like, but there have been a few nuggets I’ve stumbled across that I think you should read:
I’ve been struggling a lot lately with figuring out how to become the person I want to be. Reading The Simple Dollar post The Difference Between What We Want to Be True and What is Actually True was a good reminder to just start somewhere.
I am forever grateful to be debt-free except the mortgage. And while there are a great number of freedoms that come with being debt-free, I still carry worry and cautiousness. That’s why I loved reading Debt Free and Happy, But Where to Go from Here? at Frugal Dad.
My family and friends have heard me rant that it is ridiculous that you can get a family cell phone plan, but not a family data plan. That’s why reading the rumor that Verizon Wireless Mulls Over Idea of Offering Family Data Plans made me very happy. Data is cheap. Let’s make it affordable to use a smartphone.
Facebook can be an excellent tool for keeping in touch with friends and saving money. But it does have some risks. Read How Do I Get Rid of a Facebook Virus? for help when you’ve clicked on the wrong thing.
I’ve seen a bit of discussion on the web about how much money you need to live. That’s why I enjoyed Free Money Finance’s post Looks Like the Income Needed to Become Wealthy is Far Lower Than Most People Think.
With all of the birthdays and various celebrations (not to mention cleaning out the garage), I appreciated being reminded at Money Saving Mom that It’s the Simple Things that really matter.
