Finally Frugal's Weekend Roundup

I can't believe it's the weekend already! This short week just flew by! Meanwhile, there were loads of great posts at blogs I either read regularly, or just discovered recently.

With summer fast approaching, Being Frugal writes about ways we can decrease our water usage. I know my bill increases in the summer, what with yard watering and filling the pool, so I read this with interest.

For those of you who are digging out of debt, Cash Money Life has a wonderful series on how to improve your credit score. Amazingly, I have a pretty good credit score already, but there's always room for improvement!

Frugal Dad writes a great review of Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover, one of the books that changed my attitude about debt repayment and financial security. Follow these steps and you'll be out of debt faster than you'd imagine!

According to Can I Get Rich On A Salary, there are only two ways to save more money: spend less and save more. Along with this 'duh' statement, the blog includes a list of ways to achieve your earning/savings goals.

David, at David Makes Cents, gives us his opinion of why the gas tax should be raised, not lowered. I must say, I agree with this rather unpopular opinion. What do you think?

Since I'm currently questioning the value of paying a mortgage, I was particularly interested in a buy versus rent post at Greener Pastures. I'm going to spend a little more time researching this over the weekend.

So that's it for this week! Have a lovely weekend, everyone and I'll be blogging again on Monday!

i'm defenitely more for buying than anything. after i read total money makeover i learned that if you can tough it through a while and save then you can bank a bunch of money and then pay cash and skip out on the interest which means you end up ultimately paying less then half of what you would have. i'm reading guerilla marketing now and it has interesting perspectives on making money too.
