Wednesday Pay It Forward Award!

Sallie’s Niece was very kind enough to give me a Pay It Forward Award a while back.

According to the rules, I must forward the award to other worthy PF blogs. The recipients can then:

1. Put the logo (above) on their blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.
3. Nominate at least 5 other blogs.
4. Add links to these blogs on your blog – don’t forget this step. This is great free advertising!
5. Leave a message for your award recipient on their blog.

(Please note that this of course, is done in the full spirit of fun. There is no obligation.)

Here are some blogs that I enjoy reading:

MoneyBeagle started his personal financial blog the same time I did (in August 2008). Unlike me, Money Beagle is a smart guy (he has an MBA) and says he's always enjoyed budgeting. (Is he serious??) I like that he started his blog as a medium to share and exchange experience and knowledge.

FruGal has the coolest job in one of the coolest cities – she’s a personal finance writer in London! She provides great tips on frugal living even though she often misspells words like “labor”. (I’m kidding, of course.) Check out her FruGal recipes. (I love’em despite the fact that I had to Google what “capsicums” are.)

Pennies For Pedicures is a young professional who loves the food and culture of Paris as much as I do. Despite being so young, she’s very financially wise and motivated. I love the fact that she budgets for the occasional pedicure.

Living Paycheck to Paycheck is a young woman in D.C. coping to live in an expensive city while paying off her student loans and car debt. Like me, she also has to deal with friends whose spending habits don’t jibe with her budget.

Uncommon Cents writes his blog from the beautiful Aloha state. As much as I envy him, he reminds me about certain challenges unique to living in Hawaii. (For example a lot of the free shipping deals are only available within the Continental U.S.) I love the fact that he shares discounts he’s found in coupons, online, etc.

Please check'em out. I'm sure you'll enjoy these blogs.

Thanks so much for the award! I'm always glad to get more readers.

Also thanks for the links you gave me about Jiffy Lube and the car stuff! Loved them! I'm not using Jiffy Lube ever again since they're so shady.
