Weekend Link Luv - WOW!

When I said I would pick five of your posts who was I kidding. I couldn't just pick five if my life depended on it. You all had some amazing things to say so I narrowed it down as much as I possibly could (it was HARD) and these are the posts that I think will help you on your frugal journey. I'm sorry I couldn't print them all.

Heather at Pages By Heather writes, "I have gotten some free past its prime produce lately and have been learning to use it creatively and not get caught up about its appearance." She has a really well written article that will make you look twice at what you might have. I love things that challenge my preconceived ideas.

Monica wrote a post HERE that made me gasp, laugh and retch all at the same time and that's all I'm going to tell you about it because you need to go read it. OH. MY. GOSH! It will save you some convenience money.

Jami at An Oregon Cottage has a great tip on weedless gardening. Right up my alley since I'm all kinds of lazy when it comes to weeding. I can't wait to try it.

Moxie at Little Bits From My Home To Yours has a recipe for Poor Man's Jelly that I'm looking forward to trying. Jelly is such a treat in our house, one that always runs out and this is a great thrifty alternative.

Cindy is doing a series called Makin' Do Or Doing Without that I'm really enjoying. That is one of the best frugal concepts you can get. She was faced with a decorating dilemma in THIS post and came up with a super cute solution.

Melissa at Saving Cents With Sense wrote a very thought provoking post on how frugality has become the "in" thing to do now, but along with that comes some unhealthy judging. She'll give you a healthy perspective on living a frugal lifestyle. Go HERE to check it out.

Thank you to everyone who sent me a link. They were ALL good, not a bad one in the bunch. I think I might do this again sometime. If you were featured and would like to grab the button at the top please feel free. I made it just for you.

Thanks for doing a 'round up" of great ideas. I'm always looking for new blogs to read and am fascinated by how people handle a variety of financial situations.

Thanks to all the authors for writing great and interesting stuff!
