It’s Saturday Share Day – Week #3! I’m always learning more from this great community, and I want to make sure I help others too. Those two habits are sticking! And as I told a few people on Twitter the other day, these “share” posts are some of my favorite posts to write!
Here are some great posts other bloggers have written this week. I hope you enjoy them too!
If you haven’t checked out Side Hustle Nation, you definitely should! I binge-listened to Nick’s podcasts last year on my hour commute to work. Nick linked to my “Giving Up My Goals to Focus on Habits” post this week and took it even further by focusing on micro-habits.
Amanda (formerly Dream Beyond Debt) wrote a great post this week about how she is sticking to one side hustle. Her explanation makes a lot of sense to me!
And speaking of one – what about having only one car? We’ve talked about this a lot lately too. Check out posts from Chris at Keep Thrifty and Claudia and Garrett at Two Cup House on their transitions to having only one car!
I also connected with a post about one hundred this week! Fritz may get to be 100 years old a few years before me, but he makes some really important points in this post. And he’s definitely on FIRE this week with guest posts on Budgets are Sexy and Physician on Fire!
Gary over at Super Saving Tips shared the story of his biggest financial mistake this week. I think it’s awesome that people share stories like this. If only we could get more people to read and learn from them!
And Brian over at Debt Discipline wrote a post explaining why he speaks at public events about their past debt and the struggles they faced to change their financial situation. Brian has done great work in his community and his local school district on financial literacy for students.
Mrs. Frugalwoods wrote an amazing post this week – a complete guide to frugal and healthy eating. I read the post and bookmarked it right away! I’ll come back to this one more than a few times!
Jeremy at Go Curry Cracker reminds us that paying taxes with a credit card is a great way to travel hack some great experiences too! I get stuck on the fees sometimes without adding up all the points/rewards a new credit card sign up would give me. Time to make a plan!
And Joe over at Retire By 40 detailed how and why you should all start a blog. Joe’s been at it for a few years now and he finally shared plans for his second blog too! Let’s get fit folks!
Last week I highlighted J.W. (The Green Swan) and their upcoming addition to the family. I also shared the Amino Health guest post J.W. had on the cost of delivering babies! Our friends over at Apathy Ends have a little girl on the way this spring too! Good thing that baby will bring them happiness – because according to AE, money just won’t do it.
And Penny and Mr. P shared some exciting news too this week! She’s purged plenty of shoes – but it’s time to make room for some new ones too 😉 And I got chills this week (luckily not from the fevers that are going around at school!) – but from Tristan and Jasmin’s post from down under. They’re pregnant too! Practicing patience pays some beautiful dividends.
To wrap up the week…Can you help out Maggie if you haven’t done so yet? She’s a PF blogger but she’s also a behavioral economics researcher! It only takes a few minutes to do the survey – and I know Maggie appreciates your responses! Click here to help Maggie out!
I’ll leave you with another quote that has a lot of meaning to me this week. There’s mixed information on who should get the credit; many attribute it to Eleanor Roosevelt, while others say it is an old Chinese proverb. Either way (and even though it’s going to be hard), I think it’s pretty good advice.
“It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”
