Looking for this week’s Festival? Hop on over to Frugal for Life where Dawn has done yet another fantastic job hosting with a Silver Edition of the Festival of Frugality. It has a few silver trivia facts along with all of this week’s greatest in frugality. For example, did you know that the 1964 silver Kennedy Half Dollar was 90% silver and replaced within three months of the President’s assassination? The facts just keep coming so you have to check it out, but here were the four editor’s picks:
- Mrs. Nespy’s Frugal World: 8 Items Your Baby Really Doesn’t Need – Since my sister is having her first baby this one caught my eye and I sent to my sister to review.
- Personal Finance By The Book: Five Reasons Why a Penny Saved is Better Than a Penny Earned – I fully agree, saving money to me is more fulfilling than earning more.
- Budgets are Sexy: Frugality on a Whole New Level! – The post is short and to the point, but the comments are better. Always nice to see commentors who are willing to voice their opinions.
- Bargaineering: Your Take: Why Are You Frugal? – Another short post but the comments make up for that with wonderful personal experiences.
Next week the festival goes to Frugal Upstate, so please get your submissions in early!
