It's the perfect day to be stay at home and be lazy. It's windy, cold and rainy outside and I will be staying home all day to do a few things I've needed to do around the house. I need to put a couple of items on Ebay, balance my checkbook, do laundry and catch up on a few shows I've recorded but haven't had a chance to watch yet. It was nice to have my family in town for a few days but they are all gone back home now.

Here are some great posts I've read around the blogosphere.

From the M-Network:

  • How Blogging Changed Me from I totally agree with Lynae and I feel most people have forgotten the true meaning of Christmas. I too will be having a frugal Christmas.
  • Why do I always find a better deal AFTER I buy it? from Gather Little by Little. I hate when that happens.
  • Thanks for Everything from Paid Twice. Paid Twice gives a hearty thanks to the readers for keeping her accountable to improving her family's financial situation. I too am very thankful to my readers for helping me stay on the right track with my finances.
  • 22 Money Maximizing Moves You Can Do Today from Moolanomy. It's that time of year to look at where you can minimize your 2007 tax bill and this post certainly helps.
  • Buy Nothing Day is Friday - Are you participating? from My Two Dollars. I planned to participate but I found a good deal on a $20 Shop Vac that I had been wanting. I almost bought one last month for $60 so I saved $40 by waiting. Considering some of the big ticket items some people bought, $20 is not bad at all.
  • 100 Free Resume Templates from The Dough Roller. Looking for a new job? This massive list of resume templates will definitely help you build a killer resume.

And from my blogroll:

I'm off to go enjoy my last day before going back to work tomorrow and catching upon all the things I didn't get done last week. It seemed like I was in holiday mode ALL WEEK and I didn't get much done.
