Frugal Friday: Blog Posts That Ruled This Week, 100 Posts Edition

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.

    • Thanks so much for the kind words Laurie! We go out so rarely anymore, especially without our little ones we find ourselves not knowing what to do. Have a great weekend yourself!

  1. That’s great that you’ve hit 100 posts and your blog has become a great resource for many. Have a good week-end!

    • Thanks Grayson! Congrats to you as well. I am hoping to decompress a little this weekend, we’ll see if I get that lucky. Have fun with that little one and the family.

  2. 616 habits that can save you money hahaha.. that is hilarious.. so random. Thanks for the mention mate. I had to split my post up as well as it was just too much in one go. It will be much easier for you now especially once you know what works and what doesn’t. Looks good, thanks for the mention as always and am happy your blog is growing so well. You are a great mate! Mr.CBB

    • I know, it seemed very random to me. But, hey, at least they’re thinking. ;) I hated having to split it up, but it just had to be done. It really does not require much more work and t doesn’t dilute the posts as much by doing so. Have a great weekend Mr. CBB!

    • Thanks Todd, I am pretty humbled to see how far my little blog has come in such short a time. I bet having less competition is great. :) Have a great weekend!

  3. Appreciate the mention! Nice job hitting 100. Here’s to your next 100!

    My plans for this weekend include getting a suit tailored, sheet rocking, replacing a toilet and sink (at least getting the supplies), swapping out some outlets, church, blogging, and working on spreadsheets for a client….I’m tired just thinking about it all haha

    • Not a problem DC! Yes, here’s to the next 100 and beyond. :)

      Boy, I got tired just reading what you have to do this weekend. I am going to try and make myself not work and actually unplug this weekend, but we shall see if I am actually effective at that.

  4. Hey John, thanks for including me in your round up, I always appreciate it. I find your search term quite interesting, As far as the weekend goes my brother and I are planning to get some skiing in. I like to hit the slopes at least once in a year and relax a little. Have a good weekend.

  5. Thanks for the mention.

    Do you have a discount theater in your area? The screens are usually a little smaller, but they play movies that are in that limbo area of between being in the first-run theaters and out on DVD.

    • No problem Edward. We do have a discount theater here in town. We just don’t make it to movies very often as we don’t get out for just the two of us much. We do take the kids to the cheap theater every once in a while as they really don’t care if it’s smaller as they just love going to go see a movie.

  6. Happy birthday John!!!

    Thanks for the mention and congrats on making it to 100 posts. I’m glad that I could be of some help to you. I know I’ve been short in some of my emails, so sorry about that! Things have been crazy busy and it’s hard to keep up with everything.

    I hope you have a great birthday and had a wonderful weekend! I just relaxed, watched the KU game, part of the KState game and the football games yesterday (it was a lazy weekend for me).

    • Thanks Jason!

      You’ve been more than of some help to me. :) Oh, don’t worry about being short in emails, if you were I did not notice it as I too know the busy feeling. ;)

      Sounds like you had a much needed relaxing weekend. I had a bit of that myself, though I had to force it as I just found that I needed the weekend off.
