Frugal Friday: Posts That Ruled This Week, College Football is Over Edition
Welcome back to another Frugal Friday edition. We’ve now entered one of my least favorite times of the year – the end of the college football season. I know for some that is of no importance, but I love college football with all of the storylines and the emotional back and forth of the games…I am a sucker for it. I know we still have the NFL playoffs to watch, but there’s nothing quite like watching a good college football game.
Now that I am done with my sob story, I know you really feel bad for me, it’s been another good and busy week. If you like giveaways, then please pop on over to the $1000 Cash Giveaway as you still have time to enter. If I were to just win $1000 right now I’d probably put it towards a vacation for the family, how about you? Business has been good for us this week as well as we picked up another client and better yet it’s one that should have ongoing work for us which is ALWAYS nice.
As is usual, it’s been another great week in the blogosphere. There are some really great blog posts out there to be read and I love reading and learning from many from them. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how I can change up my weekly roundup as the benefit tends to get lost with so many blog posts being linked. I may end up having to split it up to a Friday/Saturday schedule, which I really don’t want to do but it might be for the best. We shall see. If you have time, I encourage you to check out some of the great blog posts this weekend. Does anyone have anything fun planned for this weekend? Have a great weekend!
