Tired From Shopping? Well Then Sit Down and Read!

November 27, 2010 · 126 comments

in Link Round Up

So, did many of you go out shopping this past Friday?  I personally did not, but I did talk to someone who said his wife got up early and bought 3 TVs.  I asked why and he said he wasn’t sure.  I certainly hope she got a really good deal.

Instead of shopping, my Black Friday was spent watching my son’s basketball games, and eating hot turkey sandwiches.  Not a bad day in my opinion, but my house is devoid of any new electronics and/or appliances.  Still typing on the same laptop, although it is only a few months old.  But, my credit card is light as a feather, which I love.

Since everyone is resting up from over-eating, over-shopping, or over-working if you aren’t from the US, it is a perfect time to sift through some links and read some great posts!

101 Centavos called his cable provider and cut some extras from his cable bill. He is now contemplating cutting cable entirely. Could you do it? We pay quite a bit for phone, internet and cable, but it is the small things in life that we work hard for. I like the ability for all of us to sit on the couch and watch a show on our big screen TV. It is especially important to me during baseball season!

Aloysa’s Kitchen Sink shares her evolution from being debt-free, to a free-wheelin’ spender, and back. Also, she has a new Facebook page, so become a friend of the Kitchen Sink!

Biz of Life shares some great humor regarding the TSA guidelines.

Bucksome Boomer reminds us to use those gift cards, and also shares a great cartoon! Where do you store your gift cards? I personally put mine right into my purse, but I wasn’t always so disciplined.

Budgeting in the Fun Stuff fits in a fun Friday with exercise. What a great idea, especially considering the gluttonous amount of food I ingested the last couple days!

Faithful With A Few informs the world that Netflix is raising prices. I had been a huge fan of Netflix in the past, but now that school has started, we barely watch any movies now. (Apocalypse Now sat on our TV for about 3 months. My son watched the first 30 minutes a couple days ago and turned it off. I have no idea what is even in our queue anymore.)

Financial Samurai wants to extend unemployment benefits to 5 years and shares the benefits to his plan. What do you think, great idea or ludicrous?

First Gen American enlightens her readership with how to clean stainless steel appliances. Who knew Olive Oil was so versatile??

Free Money Finance shares an email from a reader that can’t decide between furthering their education or investing in a house. The situation is not as cut and dried as you may think, and the comments are as interesting as the post.

Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured shared how their website was born. My blog was stirring in the back of my head for about 6 months before I took the leap. What about you?

Invest It Wisely explains the Yakezie scholarship, which is open to high school kids and younger. This scholarship is just one of so many out there that many high schoolers probably have no idea even exist. He also writes a great post about the up-and-coming website grading system called Moz Rank, and how it should replace the antiquated Google Page Rank.

Len Penzo shares tips on buying the perfect Christmas tree. We personally have an artificial tree. What about you??

Minting Nickels has a little quiz called Easy Or Hard, regarding little personal finance changes. Some of these may seem easy, but are actually hard to do.

Money Reasons provides some info on Health Savings Accounts. I found this post very helpful as I will be participating in one this upcoming year.

My Journey to Millions thinks about money, a lot…. Healthy or no? I personally can think of worse hobbies, like spending money for fun.

Personal Finance By the Book writes about not just being a good gift giver, but also a good gift-receiver. I think Joe is writing directly to me because I am a terrible receiver of gifts/help. I don’t know why, but I will turn down help no matter how badly I may want it. This post really made me think about how I need to change, so thank you Joe!

Squirrelers shares his shopping experience at the grand opening of a local Costco. Read the post and marvel at the amazing restraint our Squirrel has, except at the free sample counters.

Watson Inc questions why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Does everyone truly have the same opportunities in life, or does environment play a role? Personally, I think environment has a heck of a lot to do with success…

Wealth Artisan shows his artistic side by sharing a haiku about Black Friday. Will he get the big screen TV or no???

Wealth Informatics has a guest post that describes some last minute tax moves you should consider before the end of the year.

Andrew @ 101 Centavos November 27, 2010 at 8:47 am

Hello Kris, thanks for the mention. We made one brief and foolish attempt to venture out to get a new igniter for the potato gun, and were beaten back by hordes of frantic shoppers on the road. The police were even posted on the roads to direct the flow of traffic. Insane… Have a great rest of the weekend, and regrets on the Lions.


The Biz of Life November 27, 2010 at 9:36 am

Thanks for the mention.


Roshawn @ Watson Inc November 27, 2010 at 10:33 am

Thanks for the link and all of the discussion!!! That was so interesting and added so much value 🙂


Nicole November 27, 2010 at 11:19 am

Thanks for the link! We went out and got extended family pictures for one of the great grandmas yesterday. Today is Thanksgiving meal #2 for the other great-grandma. I got to help with the sweet potato casserole this time.


Aloysa November 27, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Thank you for including my story!

We didn’t do any shopping. We hate crowds and running around, chasing deals that actually sometimes are not that good. Instead we watched a new Harry Potter wich was really boring. 🙂


Money Reasons November 27, 2010 at 4:17 pm

Thanks for the link, that an incredible list you have there!!!

We didn’t venture out in the cold weather for black Friday either. I hate fighting crowds and the negative feelings about the entire process. I want this holiday season to be relaxing and warm 😉

I passed on getting a new host provider too, I missed the 80% off and was mildly upset…


Kevin@InvestItWisely November 27, 2010 at 7:51 pm

Thanks for the double mention! 🙂


Crystal @ BFS November 27, 2010 at 9:03 pm

Thanks for the link love! We hung out with family during the afternoon, put up some Christmas decorations after that, and played board games and watched Major League with a buddy until 3am, lol. Zero shopping, yay!


Carol@inthetrenches November 27, 2010 at 9:42 pm

Very entertaining presentation of your links. Yeah, cable is a tough one for most people. It seemed like a crime when they did away with rabbit ears and free t.v. though limited in channels. One of the changes in technology advancement is that they have figured out a way to charge people for everything.


First Gen American November 28, 2010 at 6:39 am

My ex-neighbor wanted to go to people watch at 4:30am. I did go, but refused to wait in the 100+ deep lines of people. I did see at least one lady with 2 42″ flatscreen TV’s in her cart. We only have 1 TV in our house. The deals weren’t that amazing if you weren’t buying electronics. The last black friday portable DVD Player I got only lasted 6 months before it broke.

Like last year, I’ll be doing my Xmas shopping online. Thanks for the mention. My articles this week weren’t that interesting but I really do believe that olive oil is the greatest cleaner of stainless in the world. I would have never guessed til I tried it myself.


Kay Lynn Akers November 29, 2010 at 9:09 pm

I used to shop just to shop, but stayed out of the stores this past weekend. (I did buy a couple of things online but nothing big!)

Great roundup and I appreciate the link.


Khaleef @ KNS Financial December 5, 2010 at 8:30 pm

The only shopping that we did was at CVS and Walgreens – with no lines! Thanks for including my article about Netflix!
