Blog Posts

Welcome to another Frugal Friday! This week has just flown by, but then again what week has not? This week was somewhat of a momentous one in the Frugal Rules world as I passed the 100 posts mark! When I started this little journey back in September little did I think that I’d stick around for long, much less 100 posts. I definitely would not be where I am today if it were not for the help of several bloggers…Jeremy at Modest Money and Jason at Work Save Live. Both have been an immense help and are emblematic of the helpfulness that is generally found in the PF blogosphere.

As is usually the case, there were some great blog posts in the blogosphere this week. You’ll notice that I’ve switched up my Frugal Friday somewhat. Having the mentions in addition to the blog posts was just becoming too much of a massive link dump and thus decreasing the value for all involved. Starting tomorrow I’ll be running a “Shout Out Saturday” post that will link back to all of the much appreciated mentions and Carnivals I was featured in during the previous week. This allows me to highlight my favorite posts a little better without diluting them too much. So, if you have the time this weekend, I encourage you to check out some of these great blog posts.

Does anyone have any fun plans for the weekend? My wife is taking me out for my birthday, which is this upcoming Monday the 21st. I am hoping to be able to see Lincoln, but if that is not out anymore I am hoping to see the new Matt Damon movie, Promised Land. I hope everyone has a great weekend and look forward to seeing you on Monday.
