Weekend roundup

My dad is here in Pittsburgh for a little visit, so we’re out seeing and doing stuff. Here’s a quick round-up of cool posts I found lately:

Ever want to cook in your car? Chief Family Officer shares some resources on how to do that if you have the inkling.

Trent outlines the steps you might want to take to get away from paycheck-to-paycheck living. We’ve been there, and it isn’t fun. But, I’ve found that once you get a little progress and get a savings cushion started, the momentum really starts rolling and life becomes much less stressful.

At Gather Little by Little, we learn some additional benefits of tithing.

Frugal Chick has completed her emergency fund! Yay! And she did it about six months before her original goal date. Way to go!

From the Money Life Network:

Emily at Remodeling this Life helped me to fix my site’s feed. Thanks! Check out her post on lessons in simplicity from children.

At Free From Broke, we learn some great tips on how to deal with financial problems with a loved one.

Head over to Prime Time Money encouraging you to check up on your retirement accounts and see a quick interview with me.

Bob Pete (I totally knew that! I claim preggo-brain) at Bible Money Matters is breaking down Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University course week by week. Check out this helpful installment of week seven: Clause and Effect.

You won’t want to miss Hank’s post on how to buy a home with no money down. Lol.

At Milk Your Money, Frank shows us just how easy it is to become a millionaire. All you need is 30 years and plenty of diligence!

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.

Keep in Touch!
