Link Round Up: Shivs, Focaccia, Batteries, and Losers!

May 28, 2011 · 58 comments

in Link Round Up

I cannot believe it is already Memorial Day Weekend.  Maybe it is because the weather has been so cold that it just doesn’t seem like it could be the end of May.

As usual, I am spending Memorial Day weekend at a soccer tournament in Ohio.  The fields are pretty darn muddy, and it is storming as I write. Who knows if the teams will actually get to play tomorrow or not, but I don’t think that matters to the boys.  I think that being out of town and hanging out in a hotel is what the tournament is really about to the kids.  Sure, they love soccer, but traveling in a large group is a pretty fun and unique thing.

I think it is time to close up the laptop and make the kids go to sleep.  If you have some spare minutes this weekend, read up on some of the great information provided in these posts:

101 Centavos shares some random notes including camping and focaccia. I love random posts, and this one also provides a great recipe.

Barb Friedberg Personal Finance teaches us about the paradox of choice with part 3 of the series “Don’t Fall for Money-Mind Tricks”. Very interesting and informative post.

Budgeting In the Fun Stuff  teaches us how to jump a dead car battery.  What great advice (that I hope I will never have to use…)

Financial Samurai wonders why women go out with deadbeat losers.  I don’t have any answers to this one because I have always wondered that myself.

First Gen American writes about Frugal Knives and how Babci loves Shivs.  I didn’t even know what a Shiv was until I read this article. Gotta love Babci!

Grumpy Rumblings of the Untenured wonder when the best time is for those in academia to have a baby. Tough question, and often times, the question is answered for you!

Invest It Wisely shares his story about finding a home for his used furniture using Kijiji.  The post was interesting because it details all the different interactions Kevin had with the people that bought various pieces of furniture.

KrantCents declares that nobody pays retail anymore, and he is right. The internet has made comparison shopping so much easier!

Len Penzo hosts a guest post about the high cost of being poor, and how to vanquish it.  What an amazing story.  Just goes to show that people can be resilient and find their way out of a bad situation, even with the odds against them.

Little House in the Valley’s little sister is getting married, and writes about weddings on a budget. I sure am glad I did not get married in New York City- I could never afford it!

Money Reasons wonders if the draining process of Social Security is going to speed up.  Personally, I have always planned for Social Security to be insolvent by the time I hit retirement.  However, that makes me really mad!

MoneyCone is protecting our money, and telling you to do THIS if you use online banking. I found this post especially helpful because I do almost all banking online these days.

My Journey To Millions hosts a guest post from “The Wife” about the musings of a work at home mom. I could really identify with this post as I have been a work at home mom on-and-off over the last 10 years.  It isn’t always easy, but I do love it.

Retire By 40 shares the details of their April 2011 credit card bill.  I am absolutely envious of how little they spend.  However, the best part of the post is the picture of the cute baby :).

Single Mom, Rich Mom shares a fantastic lesson that involves the cup of life.  I don’t want to ruin the point of the story by sharing anything else, but you really should stop by and read it.

Squirreler’s breaks down the economics of picking up pennies.   I personally cannot walk by a coin on the ground without picking it up.   Maybe I am afraid I might be walking away from good luck, who knows.

TransformX makes some very good points about perspective when facing the facts of maintaining weight loss.

Wealth Informatics shares how to get free life insurance for low-income families.  I love the new Free Money Friday series, and this post can help a lot of people.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day.  I would also like to extend a huge thank you to all of those who have served in our nation’s military.   I have never served in the armed services myself, but I certainly admire those who have. Many soldiers gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country, and we will be forever grateful.

I actually didn’t know what a shiv was either until babci was accused of having them. I thought it was just a sharp knife.
