Happy Friday, friends!
I am so glad it’s finally the weekend, I needed it. This week has been pretty busy and instead of going to an event I was invited to after work tonight, I went straight home. Just like that, on a Friday evening. Lying on the couch and reading through my favourite PF blogs seemed like a much better idea. I also got 3 new personal finance books from my library and I cannot wait to start reading. Yep, I chose reading over partying. Wow!
One of my close friends is back in London (she is originally from Australia and had to go back home for 3 months to get a new visa) and I cannot wait to see her on Saturday! I think the plan is to go out for drinks but since I really don’t fancy staying up till late (yep, I’m such a bore!), I will meet her for lunch or early dinner. On Sunday, I am planning to continue decluttering. I still have some clothes to go through and decide what I want to do with them. Since I am moving fairly soon, my goal is to get rid of 50% of my belongings (sell, donate or bin) and I’m determined to reach this goal, and hopefully fit all my possessions into 5 big moving boxes (excluding telly and some other electronics).
I am also planning to finally put together my Blogroll over the weekend to include all my favourite personal finance blogs that I enjoy reading so much. Today, I thought I would share with you all my favourite reads this week. I don’t think this is something I’m going to do every Friday, but I thought it would be fun to share the Link Love every now and again.
I have really enjoyed Catherine’s post But Everyone Has Debt…Right? on her blog Plunged in Debt. I have to admit there was a time when I thought debt was pretty normal.
My favourite UK blogger (yes, I may know her name) from A Disease Called Debt wrote a great post How to Stop Wanting Stuff that You Can’t Afford which includes some very useful tips.
Wendy from Girl Meets Debt is leading a healthy lifestyle and eating organic. Another post that I found very interesting on Wendy’s blog is a guest post written by Nell from The Million Dollar Diva called Go On, Treat Yourself (Without Busting the Budget) and has a very inspiring idea on how to reward yourself during your debt repayment journey without breaking the bank.
Cait from Blonde on a Budget has a new apartment, new goals and… new budget. Make sure to head over and check it out, it’s very pretty!
Tonya from Budget and the Beach and Michelle from Shop My Closet Project have launched their new website It Started With Lip Gloss. Congratulations, ladies!
Happy reading! Are you doing anything exciting this weekend?
