Weekend Reading: Easter Edition

by Julie on March 29, 2013 · 12 comments


It’s almost Easter so it must be time for my annual deviled egg post.

  • I’ve blogged about deviled eggs so many times on this blog it’s kind of ridiculous. But they’re kind of my thing. And they’re yummy and frugal and perfect for all the Easter eggs you’ve got lying around, so here they are again: Fancy, Frugal Deviled Eggs.
  • Also, Elle from My Financial Reviews is running a series of blogger interviews and I was lucky enough to get to particpate. You can read my interview here: How to Succeed as The Family’s CEO. Thanks, Elle, for including me!

Now onto some posts from around the web that caught my eye recently:

  • The Invisible Rich at Kiplinger. From the post: “The biggest barrier to becoming rich is living like you’re rich before you are.”
  • DIY Ivy Topiary at All Things Heart and Home. I’ve never had great luck keeping ivy alive indoors, but this post makes me want to try again.
  • Finally, Myquillyn at Nesting Place wrote about paying off $150,000 of debt in five years. Myquillyn — who normally blogs about house stuff — is known for her authenticity and transparency, and this post is no exception. If you want to be inspired, go read it.

How to pay off debt

I really liked the grocery bill post. My favorite tip was buying fewer veggies. I’m guilty of thinking I’ll have time to cook all these fresh veggies and then life happens. So, occasionally, we’ll go without buying veggies for 2 weeks just to make sure we use up what we have.

I especially liked that tip, too, Barb.

I recently joined and really enjoy your blog. Your site provides so many tips that are helping me to run my household more economically; it is very empowering.

Just a quick note though that the “23 Quick Tips to Cut Int’l Travel Costs” link does not seem to go to the correct post at this time.

Wishing you a Happy Easter!

Thank you for the nice words and the heads up, Charity. I’ve fixed the link. Happy Easter to you too!

Thanks for sharing the post on Careful Cents! It’s always nice to offer some non-traditional ideas and I’m glad other readers are finding it helpful too. Hope you have a Happy Easter weekend!

I am new to this blog but I have to say that I am happy that I landed here. Those are some effective tips that have captivated me and forced to think about my money strategy a my place. Have to revamp my budget for sure.

Thanks for this wonderful share!!! And yeah, Happy Easter(I know it is late but still!!!)

Glad you found some that looked interesting, LH.

I love that Kiplinger piece. The part you quoted reminds me of the Millionaire Next Door.

Julie April 2, 2013 at 1:06 pm

I agree, Joe.
