Happy Friday, everyone! It has been a busy few weeks at The Heavy Purse as we have been celebrating National Financial Literacy Awareness Month. While the month may be coming to a close, my passion and resolve to help people become financially literate is not ending. And I hope you feel the same way.
Last week, I decided to skip my weekly round-up to continue promoting the wonderful posts from the Financial Literacy Awareness Carnival participants. They did an unbelievable job, and I was incredibly moved by their posts. Thank you again to all the participants. I appreciate everything you do. In case you missed their posts—here they are. Be sure to read their amazing stories.
Frugal Rules ~ Reach Financial Independence ~ Eyes on the Dollar ~ Debt Roundup ~ Canadian Budget Binder ~ Johnny Moneyseed ~ Plunged in Debt ~ Tackling Our Debt ~ Femme Frugality ~ The Frugal Farmer ~ One Smart Dollar ~ Young Adult Money ~ The Frugal Path ~ Thrifty Dad ~ Broke Millennial ~ Cash Cow Couple ~ A Young Pro ~ Debtblag ~ The Random Path.
Great Weekend Reads for You
I decided to supersize this week’s edition and feature the best of the best from the past two weeks. Happy reading!
Mackenzie from The Random Path writes beautifully about how fear had its claws in her At Night. And the serenity that eventually followed her sleepless nights.
In his post, I Don’t Want Fries with My Retirement, Mr. 1500 recalls seeing an elderly woman working at McDonalds and his plan to avoid a similar fate.
Glen from Monster Piggy Bank shares 20 Things I Have Learned Since Becoming a Dad. Oh, how I can relate.
In his guest post at Eyes on the Dollar, Todd from Fearless Men asks Is Fearing Inducing You to Spend Money When You Know You Shouldn’t? Sadly, it seems to be a common occurrence.
Laurie from The Frugal Farmer invited Fehmeen from Management Mafia to share 5 Easy Tips for Teaching Your Children Personal Finance. Great advice with a heavy dose of humor. Love it!
It’s very easy for parents to inadvertently go overboard trying to give their kids the best life possible. Brian from Luke 1428 reminds us It’s Okay to Create Cheap Memories and the value of an experience isn’t relative to its cost.
In the wake of all the scary news last week, Kym from My Mommas Hands Turned Off My Computer/Radio and Went for Walk instead. Sometimes the best way to keep perspective is to remind yourself there is still beauty and goodness in the world.
Well, that’s a wrap for this week. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
