    These are all good reads. I am actually moving my roundup to Saturday's because I want the week to have more content and not just link sharing. I will test it and see how it goes. Good luck with the new style.

      Thanks Grayson. There are so many wonderful blogs and posts every week that I can't keep up! This is my small way of helping promote other bloggers who provide such great content. Let me know how your test goes. It sounds like a good plan to me. :)

    Thanks so much! I just found this in my spam folder! I've missed 2 weeks of my normal weekly reads. Like you, I want to move the date but have been so busy on the weekend it's been missed.

    I really enjoyed the article about 'engaging and fun ways to teach children about money.' This has always been something I look for updated information on because I think the more kids know about money the more financially responsible they will ultimately become.

      Thanks for stopping by. I agree - the more kids know and understand how money works, the more financially responsible they become, which is something we all want are children to be. Teaching kids about money can absolutely be fun and have a huge payoff in their long-term financial well-being.
