Finally Frugal's Weekly Roundup. . .

This week has flown by! I wasn't able to cruise the blogosphere much, unfortunately, but I did pick out some great posts that caught my eye in spite of being crunched for time. . .

J.D. at Get Rich Slowly wrote an interesting post about what a person could do once he or she gets to what he calls the 'Third Stage of Personal Finance'. In other words, once we've paid off debt and learned the mechanics of saving and investing, what then? I highly recommend this one, especially for those of you who are clearly 'there' (you know who you are!)

Here's my final plug for The Thrifty Chicks' February Thrift-ya-away, in which you can win one of six frugal thriftstore finds by simply leaving a comment! Who could resist?

Working for Financial Freedom is a site I wish I'd discovered last year. This is the story of one family trying to pay off $58,000 in debt. As of now, they're very, very close! I'm going to spend some time reading the archives on this one. . .

Finally, on I've Paid for This Twice Already, a lovely post about bringing balance into our lives. This sort of goes full circle back to Get Rich Slowly, which is essentially discussing the same concept. We can (and should) pay off debt, set up savings plans, and focus on investments. But we also need to live in the moment rather than constantly planning for the future. . . .

Have a great weekend, everyone!

I enjoyed the THird Stage.... My plan is just to decrease my number of work days/hours, and to have more time to myself to do what I want to do. Time with family and friends, and to enjoy a simpler life that is not money driven. So far, it's working just fine :)

Hi,
thanks for the link to my blog. I've really slowed down my blogging since my little one was born, so I don't log on often. We are close to paying our debt off, but gosh darn it, we aren't quite there yet. I will definitely blog about it when we do though.

I love all things frugal so I'm going to spend some time checking out your site.
