There have been plenty of good articles I have enjoyed around the web.  Here are a few:

I have been considering investing in a CSA this year as a way to save on our food costs, so I enjoyed reading Sustainable Life Blog‘s post on his experience with a CSA.

Broke Professionals shares why they hate taxes and what steps they take to try to minimize the time it takes to file.  I dislike tax season, also.  I feel that I have already spent too many hours getting ready to file, and we haven’t even filed yet!

Money for College Project shares the top 23 gifts to give college students.  Great list for birthdays, Christmas, graduation. . .

Does money keep you from pursuing your dreams?  Vow to change your spending habits so you can pursue what you truly love.  This is one reason why Watson, Inc. says you should seek abundance.  Excellent list.

Money Cactus shares how to use Twitter to improve your finances.  I plan on trying some of his suggestions.

Contrary to popular opinion, Mighty Bargain Hunter argues why frugality is good for the economy.

This is the type of article I love to read.  WiseBread shares how to travel full-time for less than $17,000 a year.

Free from Broke guest poster Rob Bennett shares playing Dominion vs. playing the stock market.

Penny Pinching Professional is about to graduate and is musing for the future.  Unlike years gone by, once we enter a career, we don’t stay for life.  Many of us make several career changes in a lifetime, and it is difficult to anticipate what will come next.

Investing in company stock used to be a great perk to have.  However, there are dangers to it, as Stock Trend Investing shares.

Thanks for the link! Frugality is good in that it’s what the economy desperately needs now, but it does mean that many businesses need to scale back, which does hurt a bit.

Thanks for mentioning my article, I hope that it does provide some help!

Thanks for including me and glad to see that you signed up for a CSA – I’d love to compare costs and what food that we got each week this summer. Let me know if you’re interested.

Jeff–That sounds like a great idea. Especially since I had at least a dozen to choose from. Hope I picked a good one!
