Welcome back to another Shout Out Saturday! It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day! It seems like it was just yesterday that it was Christmas and now we’re staring down spring. Now that we’re close to spring it has me excited about doing some spring cleaning around the house. Our main task for this spring is what I affectionately refer to as “De-crapify 2013.” We have simply allowed ourselves to accumulate too much crap around the house and it just seems to be everywhere. I could come up with a number of different excuses, but at the end of the day that’s all they’d be…excuses. So, hopefully in the next few weeks we’ll get started on the cleanup and will either be selling a lot of stuff on Craigslist or giving a lot of it away.
Speaking of spring cleaning, I’ve been doing some of that with the site this week. If you look at the toolbar, I’ve added a credit card page as well as an online brokerage page. It’s part of my attempt to help beef up some of the affiliate sales that I have been working on as well as to highlight several products. I have personally used all of the products/companies listed, save for one or two that I am very familiar with but have yet to use. To be completely transparent, if you do sign up for one of the products/companies listed I will receive a small commission that will go to support Frugal Rules as I continue to build up the site. They’re all products that I stand behind 100% and would not endorse them otherwise.
You’ll notice that I’ve made a bit of a change up with the Shout Out Saturday post, mainly in that the list is much shorter. I do appreciate all of the blogs that mention me throughout the week and am always honored when someone takes the time to mention me. That said, I have decided to cease mentioning the blogs of all the bloggers who mentioned me and instead just list the Carnivals that included me. I’ve decided to do this for a number of reasons, but it mainly came down to the time savings that can be spent on other backend things as well as not wanting to have a massive link dump every Saturday. Please know that I still appreciate the mentions and that my not including them in this post is no indication of my being unappreciative.
That said, I want to thank all of the bloggers that included me this week in their Carnivals last week. Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
