Shout Out Saturday #23

shout out

Happy Saturday party people! I hope that everyone is having a great start to their weekends! As I wrote yesterday, I’ll be away from the blogosphere next week as I’ll be helping my youngest brother find his first place to live now that he’ll be starting his first job next month. Hopefully we’ll be able to get him set up with a decent apartment as well as doing some used furniture shopping to furnish the apartment. My frugality will likely be in use as I help him get set up, especially after hearing what some friends have been telling him how much he should spend on his apartment in terms of rent. That said, I have the week filled out with some great guest posts that will help the time go by. Mrs. Frugal Rules and I are also planning on going out for a date night tonight. She has been wanting to see the new Superman movie – Man of Steel, so I’ll be interested to see how good it is, especially as it’s produced by the same guy who directed the latest Batman trilogy. Well, I am going to keep it short again today in the hopes that you’re doing something fun this weekend.

It was another great week for Frugal Rules in the blogosphere. Thanks to everyone who gave Frugal Rules a shout out or included us in their blog carnival. Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!

  • Hi John! You’ll have to let us all know how the movie is. I just know you’ll find some excellent deals for your brother. You should write a post about the experience! Have a great weekend. 🙂

    • John says:

      I just may do that Laurie…especially considering the fact that he was told that it was normal or acceptable to spend at least 40% of his income on his housing. He told me that and I was like “No, No, NO!”

  • Hey John!
    Happy weekend, John! I hope you have a great weekend and I can’t wait to see the Superman movie! I hope it’s good. Good luck to you and your brother with the move and I hope you guys find great furniture deals.

  • Have a great date night! My wife, me, and my best friend went to see Superman. I thought it was pretty good, and definitely WAY more action than the last Superman movie. Also, our theater was a bit toasty (some issue with the AC) so we got a free pass to another movie!

    Hope everything goes well with your brother. That was nice of you to take off the week to help him out.

  • Thanks for the shout out – keep up the great work!

  • Nice. Good luck with your apartment hunting. It can be stressful but it’s exciting as well. An opportunity to bond with your brother. And you know your niche so you’ll definitely find a good deal. Hope you guys enjoyed your weekend.
