Weekly Blog Roundup

This is a series where I link to my favorite blog posts from the financial blogs that I follow and read directly. These are the articles I found particularly useful or good in some way. I hope you enjoy my choices and learn something too!

Week of 8/1/2010:

  • Convert Purchases from Dollars into Time @ Bargaineering. Jim writes that we should look at how much time at work we spent to earn enough for that $5 latte or $20 toy. This is a great practice to learn and use to curb impulse spending and increase frugality.
  • The High Cost of Modern Living @ Get Rich Slowly. JD Wrote an interesting post on how all the modern conveniences today really eat away at our bank accounts. This is why I cut cable.
  • Building Skills for Free @ The Simple Dollar. Trent tells us that learning a new skill does not cost a fortune (or any money for that matter). Good tips in here!
These are my favorites for the last week. Feel free to comment and share some others that I may have missed or not even know about. Have a great week!
