There are so many great blogs and articles out there! Here are a few great ones I found this week:
- Retirement savings has been on my mind a lot lately – probably because we do not have near enough saved. I have been trying to figure out how much we might need and more importantly how to get there before we retire. Kacie at Sense to Save is running a great series on retirement right now and her article How Much Money Will You Need To Retire is packed with good information.
- Mary at Owlhaven.net is teaching her teenages to stick to a budget when grocery shopping and feeding themselves. Each teen will get $20 for a week’s worth of food to feed themselves. They have to cook all their meals themselves as well. I have some work to do before I can try this with my oldest, but what a great teaching and learning opportunity for her kids! I can’t wait to try it myself.
- Look at this amazing blanket made out of old sweaters! I can’t wait to try it and need to hit a second hand store to scout out some nice old sweaters I can use to make one too.
