Happy Happy Friday! This weekend will be pretty busy with celebrating my two year anniversary with B and helping some family members move (does anyone else enjoy moving as much as I do? It’s like putting “gym theory” into actual practice!), so I thought I would kick start it by sharing some of my favorite posts lately. Erin posted #FF on the Twitter and after trying to figure out what that meant (friends forever? funny folks? freaky fingers?), I just ended up Googling it and found out it meant Friday Follow. So here’s some #FF for your reading pleasure:
1) I don’t think there’s anything absolutely more adorable than Budget and the Beach’s guest post from her cat, Pepe. He shares his trials and tribulations with health and E-funds, as well as the mutual unconditional love between him and his mother.
2) Johnny Moneyseed’s post on delayed gratification is also a great read, and encourages you to gain more self-awareness with spending. I’ve definitely learned a lot from him in terms of my wants/needs spending.
3) I really liked Holly’s post on her carefully thought out lifestyle inflation situation, which I thought was mutually beneficial for both parties and gave Holly and Greg a bit more breathing room with their insane schedule (seriously, not sure how they do it!).
4) I learned something new from GMD’s post on Canadian Medicare – I totally thought it was free or was paid through the high taxes incurred, but am relieved to read from the comments that I wasn’t the only one. I really hope her headaches stop after getting new specs/lenses!
5) I love Mochimac’s fashion posts, because she’s both minimalist and has great fashion sense. Plus how she arranges her pieces are always so aesthetically pleasing and well thought out. As an aside, her investing series posts are also very informative, though my pea brain has to read them in small doses.
6) Do or Debt posted an all too common (and sometimes awkward) situation of splitting the bill during group get-togethers. I just tend to state that I’m going to opt out of family style and just buy something small for myself and then pitch in for the person we’re celebrating. I end up looking like a cheapskate, but I don’t eat as much as most so I’ve become okay with it.
7) Mackenzie posts about her fondness for the PF community, and I could not agree more!
8) Harry takes on The (Hilton) Man and wins – kind of restores my faith that companies do care about customer service.
9) Erin’s dad put a candy tax on her and her sister when they were wee little lasses, and I think that’s an absolutely great idea in teaching kids financial responsibility and reality.
Hope you enjoy the reads and that you have a wonderful weekend!
