I literally have over a thousand blog posts bookmarked in my Feedly–and they’re getting a little unruly. From DIY projects to drool worthy recipes, fashion inspiration and finance advice they’re all freaking awesome, so I’m starting a new series called links I love to share them.
The hubs and I recently met with a financial planner to get our newly joined bank accounts in order and set up retirement funds, so I’ve been more finance-focused lately and reading all sorts of savvy spending blogs. Here are some great posts to keep your finances in order, and hopefully save you a few bucks too.
1. How Budgeting Works (Part 1 & 2) — A good starter guide for anyone wanting to take control of their finances, and even a good refresher for those of us who think we got it down. (Our Freaking Budget)
3. 11 Secret Starbucks Saving Tips — Because it’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season and those babies will put a dent in the purse. #PSL or bust! (Wise Bread)
5. 94 Creative Ways to Save Money — I’ll be parking myself on the sofa for a Netflix movie and a DIY mani/pedi tonight. Check off #14 & #29 for me!
6. 20 Free or Really Cheap Ways to Relieve Stress – By doing #2 I’ve been able to teach myself a ton, save a lot of cash and spend many relaxing nights at home tweaking the look of the blog.
Finances: Stick to a budget or go with the (cash) flow? I had a strict budget throughout my 20s and even grad school but it’s fallen to the wayside since the hubs and I moved in together. Its time to reassess get back on track!
