Monday Lessons for the Week

I learned so much this past week! I had to take a few days off from work because I had such a bad cold. I now definitely feel inspired and empowered, ready to take on this week!

  • I got some serious advice on how to buckle down and go bare bones for a while from The Happy Homeowner
  • I realized I wasn't the only one that dealt with the issue of mostly having friends who have money (or spend like they do at least) thanks Budget and the Beach!
  • I giggled from reading From Shopping to Saving's post on being obsessed with PF blogging. Before I started writing it was pretty much all I read online!
  • Read up and learned about Amazon's trade in store fromSo Over Debt. I've sold things on the site before, but never traded anything in, will definitely be looking into doing that soon.
  • Went back in time thanks to Budgets Are Sexy and was able to see the very first issue from Money magazine! Interesting! Love the vintage drawing of the woman carrying the groceries. 
  • Definitely got inspired from seeing Fabulously Broke's closet makeover!


  1. Oh, you are definitely not the only one who deals with friends with money!! It sometimes sucks when you feel like you can't afford anything they can. The truth is I bet they have plenty of debt too! I'm sometimes curious to do like an anonymous survey among my friends to see how many of them don't have any consumer debt!
