Stream of Peace has an excellent article on How and Why to Unclutter Your Relationships. She’s not just talking about romantic relationships. We know that sometimes we’ve gotten all we are supposed to get from a romantic relationship and it’s time to move on. The same thing can happen with friend relationships. Take stock every now and again. You may find that sometimes you just need to let go.
Eurasian Spring Roll Salad appears in the Make It From Scratch carnival at I’ve Got A Little Space To Fill. Recession Depression Therapy has a recipe for Sticky Buns, which I will definitely be coming up with an excuse to try! I’ve never made Honey Ice Cream but I’m going to try this recipe from Mission:Food. It sounds delicious.
Inaccurate Grocery Store Pricing appears in the Festival of Frugality at Funny About Money. Budgets Are Sexy gave up complaining for Lent. I gave up sweets. We Catholics choose our toughest obstacles this time of year! There’s a furor going on in the comment section at Living Almost Large’s post on Can You Be Too Frugal? It’s fascinating to read all those freely given opinions! Modern Tightwad asks for respect for each other’s choices. We “frugalists” are used to being judged but we ourselves tend to judge those free-spenders. We need to think twice about that.
Play Top Chef at Home to Become a More Creative Cook, advises Sound Money Matters. I do these kinds of things all the time and it really does give you a good culinary “stretch”. Try it, it's fun!
While I’m plugging things I like, let me take this opportunity to plug Bargaineering’s Forums. Are you a finance person? There are some good discussions going on there. Stop by, sign up and give Jim’s forums a try.
Do you use Twitter? There are different reasons to follow different people. Here are a few of my favorites to follow for this week:
@brokeinthecity is a personal finance blogger living in Canada who doesn’t believe frugality is the only thing that matters. She blogs at Fabulously Broke in the City.
@MrDirtyBoots is a husband and wife team who blog about self sufficiency at A Self Sufficient Life.
@TaxTweet blogs from Austin about, well, taxes at Don’t Mess With Taxes.
@WomenBloom has a great site, WomenBloom, which deals with midlife issues. She’s got a great Facebook page too and her readers are engaging in all sorts of interesting conversations.
@MidLifeBloggers has a wonderful site, Midlife Bloggers, featuring great articles on a wide range of topics dealing with mid-life issues by a number of excellent writers.
I like following these people because they are friendly, responsive and interesting and I think you’ll like them too!
