Writing Wrap Up: Fun December Posts

Hey Blog Peeps! I hope everyone is having a nice holiday. I’m heading to a quick bachelorette party before we fly back to Grenada on Wednesday. So, in the meantime, I wanted to share some posts!

Here are posts I’ve written for other sites this month that have others have enjoyed:


How Saving $5 A Day Can Change Your Life

5 Financial New Years Resolutions and How To Keep Them

How Being Organized Can Help Save Money

7 Inexpensive Ways to Build an Art Collection


And here are posts written by other personal finance bloggers that I really enjoyed:


Cait’s post about how 2012 was The Year She Changed Her Life completely rocked. You go girl!

Harry kept us in the loop about which Credit Cards Work Abroad. (We use Capital One – no foreign transaction fees!)

Tonya’s post on Keeping The Holidays Simple will help you make it through the New Year’s crunch!

Mr. and Mrs. POP Gave Their Renters Target Gift Cards For Christmas. I’m renting from them next!

Kathleen has some Awesome Goals for 2013.

Grayson created an impressive post full of the Best Personal Finance Advice from 2012. Loved it!

I really like Jake’s Budget Friday’s Submissions. This one was especially errr… interesting.


I hope you enjoy those posts and have a safe New Years everyone! We’ve had quite a few unexpected and bizarre holiday expenses – I’ll share all the deets next week. (Hopefully we’re not broke by then!)


Merry Christmas: Budget Blonde’s Family Photo

I just wanted to stop in and wish all of my lovely blog peeps a very merry Christmas! The blog will be a little quiet this week as I squeeze in all the family visits possible while we are stateside. Until I come back from the Christmas Madness, please enjoy our family Christmas photo from this year. Thanks so much for reading my little blog throughout the year. I think of all of you as friends, and I enjoy reading about your lives too!

Here are a few others from our photo shoot:
