Blog Round-Up: Week of August 4, 2014

Blog Round Up: Week of August, 4, 2014

It’s been another busy week as we start winding down Summer, but I don’t mind since Fall is my favorite season. 🙂 On Monday, I shared with you why your wants aren’t the enemy. It is your response to your wants that matters. And on Wednesday, I shared a few simple tips to help make back-to-school shopping easier this Fall. The girls and I need to sit-down soon and get our game plan together.

A Few Good Reads

These are my favorite posts from the past week. Enjoy!

Tonya from Budget and The Beach asked Why Do We Touch a Hot Stove?. Now you may be wondering what that has to do with finance. I’m not going to tell you the answer; you’re just going to have to read it and find out.

Natalie aka The Finance Girl explained What Is Intentional Living and How It Improves Your Finances. I’m a big fan of intentional living and being purposeful with your money is the first step to getting your finances under control. Check out Natalie’s post for more tips.

Michelle over at Making Sense of Cents shared the Worst Money Advice I’ve Ever Heard. And this awful advice is unfortunately pretty common advice. Read her post to make sure you haven’t been the recipient of this advice.

Ryan from Impersonal Finance shared how to earn Truly Passive Income. For many of us, passive income is the holy grail and smart investing is definitely one way to get started.

Tanya from Eat Laugh Purr shared how to Eliminate Odors with DIY Febreze in her staff post at Tackling Our Debt. For mere pennies, you can replace Febreze with a homemade version that will help keep your hard-earned dollars in your pocket.

And finally, I want to give a huge congratulations to Mr. CBB from Canadian Budget Binder. He and his wife and are expecting a baby! I have no doubt Baby CBB’s first word will be budget.

That’s a wrap for this week. Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Thank You Shannon,
    This year has been amazing for us both since we never thought we could have kids. I'm sure I'll be writing about our little miracle quite a bit. We are very excited. Thanks for sharing in that excitement with us.
