Posts from last week you should check out:
- Saving Money Versus Saving the World at The Simple Dollar. Trent points out that frugality is getting the best value for your money but that "value" can be defined not just personally but also communally, which I think is a really insightful way of framing it.
- You Deserve It! at Being Frugal. "When rewards get in the way of your long term goals, they become burdens."
- The Carnival of Personal Finance #147 was at Money Ning; posts I liked included Sustainability, Sustainable Development, and Financial Health, a guest post at Million Dollar Journey; and What's Wrong With Being in the Middle Class? at Mrs. Micah: Finance for a Freelance Life.
- The Festival of Frugality #120 was at A Penny Saved; I especially liked 32 Reasons to Be Frugal Besides Saving Money at Saving Advice.
