Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

Friday Round-Up: The Best in Personal Finance Blogs

As Thanksgiving approaches, many people become more cognizant of the wonderful things and people in our lives. The sun may seem a little brighter and the air a little more crisp (partially in thanks to that cold weather rolling in!). A feast with family and friends is just days away, and all may seem good with life.

Personally, I am thankful for my small family of furry children, for my extended family, and for the ability to work on my health. I love my husband and thank my lucky stars every day for having him in my life. And I love to sit back at times and take in the loveliness of life in my neighborhood, complete with laughing children, friendly neighbors, and a sense of safety.

How about you? What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

In other news, here are a few of the many fantastic articles I found this week. Enjoy!

  • Retire by Forty takes us to the Occupy Portland Movement, where some lessons can be learned in timing and peace.
  • Jeff at Sustainable Life Blog shows us how to save over $3500 on his honeymoon. That’s one sweet deal!
  • If you’ve ever met an uber frugal family, you’re sure to have some stories about their many ways to save cash, just like Debt Free by Thirty’s story about the the Lilkendeys.
  • Beating Broke takes a look at passive income, including what it is and how to get it.
  • Is it better to own a washer and dryer or go to the laundrymat? Frugal Confessions shares the pros and cons of both.

Like you, I'm so thankful for family. I'm thankful for the opportunity to pursue higher education. To live in a country where I can voice my opinion without being afraid of having it stifled in one way or another. And thankful for the sacrifice of all those who serve in the armed forces in order to make that possible. Oh, and I'm thankful for good food. Especially on Thursday :p
