Roundup: Ecofriendly Living Is Frugal

Email  Print Print  

David at My Two Dollars posted a great list of twenty-five frugal ways you can reused everyday household items this week. I’ve never thought about soaking wine corks in alcohol to make a fire starter but we are saving our corks to make a bulletin board. David also blogs at a sustainability/environmentalism blog called The Good Human.

Financial Ramblings put together an incredible list of personal finance blogs ranked by post frequency, age, and some other facts. I had no idea I put up 72 posts in July, I guess I’ve been keeping myself busy lately! I try to put up at least two posts a day on the weekdays and then some random commentary-type or book review or otherwise entertaining posts on the weekends… but 72 is a ton. Thanks for including me!

SVB has a fun post this week about how much the top bloggers earn – looks like many pull in some decent wages for their work.

Jeremy of GenXFinance has a good suggestion – start your garden projects now while good deals can still be had.

Nickels writes about how safe credit unions are, looking at some resources you can use to assess the health of your NCUA-insured CU.

Can you eliminate $500 of expenses each month? It’s a tall order but I’ve talked about looking at your trimmables, or things you can live without, while focusing on saving towards a goal, rather than just saving for savings sake, as good mechanisms to help you.

Wise Bread contributor Sarah Winfrey wrote about the Pa-doink Principle which is essentially the opposite of the Latte Factor and another name for Snowflaking. The Latte Factor is where you spend small amounts on things that add up, the Pa-doink Principle is where you save small amounts and it adds up. Either way, it’s savings!

Enjoy debts? Trent at The Simple Dollar offers up one of the great debates in personal finance – should you pay off debt or save towards retirement? I say contribute to get the employer match, then pay off debt. You can’t look towards the future until you’ve faced your past. 🙂

The Best Interest Rate Banks blog has a good resource for ABA Routing Codes for Online Banks. Also, Daily Money Hack has a post about a Commerce Bank $10 promotion for book friendly kids.

Have a great weekend!

    Great link Jim. Reusing stuff is definitely the way to go. My fiancee and I try to reuse jars and bins into pots and just cut wholes in the bottom.

  2. David says:

    Thanks for the mention Jim, appreciate that. 🙂

    Thanks for the link!

    Thanks for this roundup! I especially enjoyed the household items link. We sometimes forget that a more sustainable life can save money, since we are often focused on the price tags attached to some environmentally friendly products and services.

  5. If I had known how much you make, I’d include you in the top bloggers list! 😀 Thanks for a great roundup!
