Link Love

Thirty Six Months asked if it’s better to work to live or live to work? I’d rather work to live personally, but try and find joy in my job anyway.

Girl with the Red Balloon was trying to decide whether she should go with her brain or her emotions on paying off student loans.

My Broken Coin discussed why he lets his wife shop even when they’re trying to pay off debt. It was a very good read since I’m still trying to figure out how to manage Eric’s spending without hurting our bottom dollar.

Fat Guy, Skinny Wallet is hosting a 100-pushup Challenge and bloggers are getting in on the contest.

Money is the Root wrote about 5 purchases to wait on this holiday season.

Money Trail wrote about 10 inexpensive activities to keep teens entertained. Whatever happened to counting sand? Guess teens are too good for that nowadays.

Money Cactus shared 10 easy tips for saving money on car insurance.

Nickel by Nickel hopes to make 30K from her blog next year and save $$$.

Thank you for the mention! I need to get to answeirng comments because I wanted to answer yours the most. Holidays is such a busy time!
Eric reminds me of myself! Beaker has an allowance and he even manages to save! I don’t have an allowance because it never worked for me. I just try hard to control on what I spend money. That’s the only way for me now. 🙂

Thanks for the mention! I can’t wait to giveaway the $50 cash to one lucky winner. It will be a great post-Christmas gift to help replenish an empty wallet…
