I’m planning on spending the day either at the park, working in the garden preparing it for winter, or doing laundry and cooking.  No spending for me!  What a life!  :)

Here are some posts I’ve enjoyed this week:

Kacie at Sense to Save talks about how more ‘middle class’ people are shopping at thrift stores.  I’ve been shopping at them for as long as I can remember, and I used to be ashamed to say I did!  Not anymore.

Frugal Babe talks about diversifying by paying down her mortgage. I do pay extra towards principal when I can on our mortgage, but part of me wonders if it’s a smart idea since we want to move back to Colorado so badly. I think it’s a great decision for people who plan on staying in their houses forever because that’s less debt they’ll have to worry about when retirement comes and less interest paid.

Ashley at Wide Open Wallet explains what the rate cuts mean.  Feds have cut prime rate again, hoping this will help the economy.  If you’re confused on how this affects you, read Ashley’s great explanation!

Lynnae at Being Frugal talks about Frugal Airline Travel Tips. I like the empty water bottle idea! I know I paid $2 for a bottle of water on our last flight. It was worth it but hurt to pay that much!

Frugal Chick posted a great link for 3.75% APY for Costco exclusive members. We recently upgraded our membership (cost us $50) and the $60 bonus here would be a great way to offset it. Thanks, Frugal Chick!

Paid Twice explains how to budget with irregular income. This is a great post for me because it’s always a challenge for me to budget when I don’t know how much money is coming in!

Blogging away debt is looking for a new blogger! Apply if you’re interested! Congrats, Tricia, on your sale of the blog! Best wishes!

    Thanks for the mention! We do plan on staying in our house forever, so for us it makes sense to pay off the mortgage as fast as we can. Good luck with moving to Colorado!

    Frugal Babe- You’re welcome! I wish we wanted to stay in our house forever. I guess you never know what may happen. :)
