Saturday Meanderings

Lovely weather today, assuming it’s not radioactive. Got a ton of things to do, but will pause to offer these discoveries from the blogosphere:

At I Pick Up Pennies, Abby reflects on her many blessings that have buoyed her through some very hard times.

Her mom, Donna Freedman, is back from England, having reported on one last off-the-wall adventure.

The Digerati Life’s proprietor, Silicon Valley Blogger, features a very nice survey of the types of shredders available. Nice timing here: my aged shredder is wearing out & soon will need replacement.

Revanche and PiC are about to buy a Dog Chariot! LOL! I thought I was the only person who bought a vehicle to accommodate the dog.

Mrs. Accountability had to make a difficult decision to deal with some unexpected car costs.

Five-Cent Nickel tells a tale of foreclosure and financial ruin, and it’s a story with some puzzling aspects.

Mrs. Money is getting deluged with unexpected expenses…ain’t that always the way?

Financial Samurai has posted a very detailed discussion of when you should and when you shouldn’t hire an accountant to do your tax returns. This is really quite a good post and it elicits some interesting comments from readers.

Money Crush and spouse are streaking toward their goal of paying off their mortgage.

At BripBlap, Steve issues some excellent advice to those who are feeling less than thrilled with the day job.

You have to move fast to keep up with Bargain Babe. Go there today for leads to 17(!) coupons and freebies.

At My Journey to Millions, Evan and The Wife contemplate a move to bigger quarters, now that the parents wish to visit for the purpose of doting on the new babe. When we said “there’ll be some changes made,” were we psychic or what?

And finally, in the hilarious excess department, check out this outrageous story at The Consumerist. “Floozy”! Who would think anyone under the age of 60 had ever heard the word, much less knows what it means? :-D

I am a single, 61 yo woman trying to refine my budget.. How much do you budget for food? Do you have a maximum or typical cost per meal?

Thank you for the mention. It was a hard decision, but I think we made the right one.

Thanks for the link! I can’t decide whether I’d rather be a cougar or a floozy.

Hey, hey! Just because everyone’s (almost) on PiC’s side doesn’t mean it’s a foregone conclusion!! Or, can we at least pretend it’s not? :)

P.S. Don’t worry, “floozy” is alive and well – I’ve referred to a few tarts by that loving moniker a few times! Or is that down to my old soul?
