TGIF: Welcome Home, Bandit!
So, I lied. Last week, I said I’d finally decided what to do with TGIF… but now I’ve really decided what to do with it. Seriously, no more changes! I think.
I’ve always wanted to do some type of weekly post, to break up the rest of whatever it is that I talk about on here. I’m not a huge fan of carnivals or link loves, but I do want to share some of the stuff I enjoy reading each week. I also want to keep up with sharing the low and high of my week, and sneak in a little money talk too. So, going forward, you can expect to see a little something like this every Friday:
The low of my week was getting an unexpected bill, after I’d already moved a bunch of money into various savings accounts and given myself a very small amount of cash until payday. Eek!
The high of my week was getting my car (Bandit) back from the auto body shop. Is that lame? It’s just so nice to have it back, in good condition and with no more reminders of what happened that day.
A blog post I loved was The Hardest Decision Was to Live Differently Than Everyone Else over at Budgets are Sexy. One of J’s readers sent him that quote and I think anyone who has made a decision to go against the norm will appreciate the rest of the post.
The best money I spent was $10.45 for a copy of MoneySense’s Guide to Buying and Selling a Home. I write about this stuff everyday for work, but could use some new insights and ideas. (PS, have you seen their new site? It looks awesome!)
My plans this weekend include two brunches and hopefully a nice walk around the city. I may not be able to hike yet, but I want to get outside before six months of rain begins!
Your turn! How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
