Shameless Promotion: First Day Of Sun Edition

Those of you in the Northeast (and even elsewhere) may have noticed it’s been raining for about a month.

Here in Maine, we had our wetest June on record, and today for the first time, we all saw blue sky. Needless to say, people were pretty happy and it felt like we were all caught up in the sappiness of a Disney movie. It made me think about being grateful for things we normally take forgranted.

Some cool things from around the internet this week:

Not Driving Your Less-Frugal Friends Crazy (Wisebread)
I feel like such a putz when I can’t join my friends for breakfast out, but Wisebread addresses the issue of watching spending without making friends feel bad about theirs.

Shameless Promotion: On The Road Again Edition

Happy Monday!

As the long weekend approaches, I’m getting ready to head northward to my hometown of Fort Kent for a wedding and some family time.

I’ve been doing some fun reading as usual, sadly more than I ever have time to highlight on this blog. That’s why I’m excited to be on Digg now. So I will try to give props to cool articles I don’t get to write about on the blog on my Digg account (breakingeven), or you can navigate to it in my menu on the left.

In the meantime, some money saving links, money making links, and fun links for your pleasure.

Kacie at Sense To Save reminded me of free weekends this summer at national parks. This month: July 18 and 19.

Shameless Promotion: The Smelling The Flowers Edition

The peonies bushes outside my window have finally bloomed. Of course, I didn’t have the forsight to take photos of them while it was light out but I am enjoying their fragrance wafting in while I sit at my desk.

It is important to stop and smell those flowers, isn’t it? Here are some fun things I’ve stopped to read recently:

(Author’s Note: This post was way longer but then my computer timed out and I lost most of it. A reminder to save often, fellow online writers!)

Shameless Promotion: The It's Been Too Long Edition

I subscribe to over 200 blogs and websites but you certainly wouldn’t know it from my blog recently. I’ve basically had time to read and bookmark and that’s about it. And then I get frustrated that my stuff isn’t getting linked!

Yeah, I get it; it’s time to pop out of my oh-my-life-is-a-whirlwind-of-change bubble and do a little aknowledgement of cool things going on elsewhere online, because there are certainly plenty.

Shameless Promotion: The Post Toddler Edition

Over the weekend, I had two great house guests. One is my V-have friend S. The other was her 1.5 year old daughter I.

To keep my apartment from being the potential death trap it normally is, I looked around, squatting, hoping to spot the potential hazards. I took the portable potential death traps and stored them in my car for the weekend (remember my 220 square foot apartment with no closets?). The other ones were moved to inconvenient locations after which I hoped for the best.

Of course, the kiddo was pretty chill and I had the best built in toy ever: my smallish dog. Both Sadie and I are still recovering from all that energy (we slept a lot last night) so I thought it may be a good time to talk about some fun stuff I've stumbled across recently.

1 Chicken, $17 Meals, $26 Bucks, No Mayo from Cheap Healthy Good
No one can stretch a food buck better then Cheap Healthy Good. My one beef with them is they don't like mayo, which I love.

A Story Of Sucky Roommates from Master Your Card
If anyone can write a story, it's Kristy and there are several ministories in one. Makes me feel a little less indulgent for wanting to live by myself!

Do Nigerian Scam Artists Catch More Flies With Threats Of Detainment? from Wisebread
I always thought those Nigerian scam artist things were kind of interesting…and this post by Linsey Knerl really gets into one of them. 

An Amazing Video on the Relevance of Technology from Maine PR Maven
Nancy posted this video awhile back and I finally watched all five minutes tonight. Blew my mind. Well worth the five minutes it takes to watch it (and forward it to anyone who thinks this whole computer thing will pass.)

Using Google Calendar To Pay Bills On Time from Free From Broke
I've been using Google Calendar for about three weeks. It's changed my life. Seriously. And if organizing your life isn't a good enough reason, use it to remember to pay bills.

Your Logo Makes Me Barf from Give Me Back My Five Bucks
Completely unrelated to anything, this made me chuckle. (The second link on the list is funnier then the first but both will make you feel like you have serious art skills compared to some people out there.)

Happy Monday!
