Valentine’s Edition of Weekend Reading
I decided not to write a Valentine’s Day article this year since they’re pretty ubiquitous around the web right now. But if you’d like to read about some ways to save money on Valentine’s Day, check out my article from last year. I love celebrating Valentine’s Day, but I definitely do it my own way. There’s no way I’m taking my fiancee out for dinner on Valentine’s Day in order to pay a ton of money at an over-crowded restaurant, that sounds even worse than Restaurant Week doesn’t it?
We’ll probably celebrate Valentine’s Day by making a nice dinner together and just enjoying each other’s company. I never spend more than $20 on flowers and I’ve found the best deals at Costco and Whole Foods. We’ll probably still go out to dinner, but not on Valentine’s Day. Here are some of my favorite articles from around the web:
Valentine’s Day Articles
Cat’s Valentine’s Day plans sound just like mine and she’s hosting a $500 cash giveaway.
Mr. CBB really breaks down his budget for January and it’s pretty cool to see exactly how all his expenses break down. Looks like it takes a lot of time to stay that organized too.
I feel exactly the same way as Holly at Club Thrifty! In the past two years, I’ve refinanced twice and applied(and been accepted!) for over 12 credit cards in that time. What is the point of a great credit score if you never use it?
I didn’t have a ton of luck trying to sell my old car on the internet but Christopher has some good ideas about how to sell a car over the internet.
I know a lot of people are worried about identity theft these days and I get a lot of questions about it to my inbox so I thought I’d share this article from Mrs. Pops about how her identity got stolen.
One of the things I love most about blogging is that you can work on your own time. I don’t think I’ll ever go full-time like some others have but the freedom it provides sounds pretty awesome. I think Savvy Scot feels the same way.
No matter how much money you make, the one thing we all have that’s equal is time. Jay shares his feelings on the worth of time this week.
Daisy just got a new kitchen and now she loves to cook! I also love to cook but my kitchen size hasn’t really mattered too much, although I’m never going to live in another place without a dishwasher. That is a deal breaker for me!
I’m all for any article that recommends investing in real estate. The housing market is really starting to heat up, I even had a realtor over the other day to see what he though my place is worth(he estimated it could sell for 20% higher than what I paid 3 years ago).
