It is Friday again, that means it is time for another edition of Friday Finance Followers. I know you guys are probably sick of me talking about P90X but the one of the catch phrases for the workouts is “Bring It.” Tony wants you to bring everything you have every time you come to workout. “Do your best, and forget the rest” he says. These statements should apply to everything we do in life, when you wake up in the morning you need to “bring it” whether it is to your day job, your blog, your family. “Do your best, and forget the rest.” That is all anyone can ask of you, don’t slack off just do it the best you can and you will succeed and grow.
Now for the links:
@MyMoneyMinute Provides us with a personal account of using The Grocery Game to trim household budgets. I have hear some about this “game” but I really don’t know much about it, this was good insight into how it actually helped one person save $5,600 in 5 months on her groceries.
@EverydayFinance Covers an experience with online ticket purchases. It amazes me how companies can tack on fees for you doing what they tell you to do. If you show up at the box office and get a ticket it is going to cost you less than using Fandango. You pay for convenience but the fees talked about in this article are CRAZY.
@MattJabs discusses debt slavery, and the ways into and out of it. I think debt means different things to different people. No one really wants to be in debt but some people utilize it correctly and some don’t. Matt makes a great point though by asking the simple question “Would you rather have debt, or be debt free?” That is what I thought.
@RevanceGS wants to know if you are taking your sick days? Personally I try not to take them unless I need to but I don’t have any qualms about taking them when I am feeling under the weather. My situation is a little different though I do most of my work from home so I don’t have to worry to much about getting other people sick. Still you shouldn’t feel like you can’t take your sick days if you are truly feeling sick.
@BSimple talks about how he saved on insurance by shopping around. This is great advice for anyone looking at an increase in their insurance premiums. If you just shop around your are sure to be able to find a better rate.
