Blog Post: More Thrifty Tips
Comments: This post features 3 tried and true thrifty tips for you. Another way to become thrifty is to track your spending. Keep a notepad on you to track your expenses through out the day. Do this for a month and examine where your money is going. Explore ways to cut out all the unnecessary expenses. I use an envelope system, this works well for me.

Blog Post: Getting Out of Debt Means Saying No
Comments: I enjoyed this post because it talks about the emotional side of getting out of debt. Getting out of debt means saying no and not caring what other people say or think. Unfortunately, you may not get the support you’d normally expect during this time and you may simply have to have faith in yourself and the process.

Comments: This will be motivating to anyone working on a huge project or working at a job they don’t particularly like. I found it really inspiring after the weekend I’ve had (you’ll hear more about that soon). My favorite quote from this post is, “Bear in mind I’m not promoting BLIND faith, merely consistent effort based on a solid belief in an outcome.” Bloggers be sure to read this post. Read here.
Blog: Blunt Money
Post: Impatience is the Enemy of Prosperity
Comments: The title of this post says it all. If you want to live prosperously and get out of debt, you must be patient. You can’t be quick to spend money or take it out of investments that seem risky in the moment. Money is something that takes time to grow and manage. It’s a process that takes thought and patience.

Blog: I Will Teach You to Be Rich
Post: Stop Being a Loser and Pay Money to Save Money
Comments: Need a new car? Got a leaky roof? Don’t skimp on important things. Pay the money because it will say you money in the long run. Why plunk $500 down a car that will only last a few months? This is an interesting perspective that makes sense. Think about your what you’re buying and how much it will really cost you. Read here.

Blog: Inspired Abundance
Comments: When becoming prosperous, mindset is very important. A prosperous mindset is positive and unstoppable. When one’s mindset is prosperous, there’s no time for anything that doesn’t have to do with your greater good. This blogger says, “Mindset is everything because it’s your mindset that frames all of your experiences and determines how you feel about them.” Read the blog here.
Comments: This is a great interview that FruGal did with a fellow blogger, Single Broke Female. One thing that stood out for me was Single Broke Female’s light bulb moment. She knew that she wanted to more and needed to changer her life to get more. Many of us can relate to this sentiment. Read the blog here.

Post: “No More Mondays”
Comments: My favorite quote is, “I believe that each one of us can pursue work that is a reflection of our best selves—a true fulfillment of our callings.” I love this because it makes me think of what someone who truly loves their work does, they bring their best selves to work every day. If you are willing to bring your best self to work every day, you must be pretty happy! Dan Miller is an established career coach. His latest book is called No More Mondays.
Blog: Getting Finances Done
Post: “Financial Peace University Part 7- Collection Practices and The Spiritual Side of Managing Finances”
Comments: I’m a big Dave Ramsey fan. This post reviews some of Dave Ramsey’s financial peace programs. I love that the blogger mentions “the spiritual side of managing your finances. “If nothing else, the idea of sharing your wealth is healthy from a psychological perspective.” Sharing wealth is wonderful and leads to more prosperity. My favorite book by Dave Ramsey is the Total Money Makeover, his philosophy for financial freedom is old school and fool proof.
Blog: Budgets Are Sexy
Post: My Favorite Pieces of Financial Advice E-V-E-R
Comments: Honestly, I just like the name of this blog. Budgets are sexy. I don’t know about you, but personal finance and responsibility turns me on. I like this post because it’s practical and true. “Pump your 401 (k),” “track your spending for 3 months,” “create an emergency fund,” “pay off all bad debt”. I don’t buy the whole “good debt” v. “bad debt” thing because all debt is horrid. That being said, this is sound advice that I’m taking for myself right now. I like this blog, it’s pretty!

Blog: Imagine Freedom Now
Comments: I love the honesty of this post. The writer is encouraging but honest at the same time. She discusses fear and how debilitating it can be. My favorite quote is, “I am in control of my mind, and therefore my emotions.” She discusses how gratitude can be used as the antidote to fear. Read the post here.
Comments: While I was reading this post, the meaning of the title became clear. “Nothing is wasted,” what a profound thought. My favorite quote is, “I would much rather have just gotten it all right from the beginning and not found my path from F-bombing things up repeatedly. But now, my life is richer for all my screw ups, painful or embarrassing as they were at the time.” This post urges you to learn from the past and not beat yourself up about it. Read the post here.
