I Love You Like a Blogger Roundup – 11/9

As a country we re-elected President Obama to a second term this week.  I hope and pray that both parties will keep the best interests of our country in mind over the next four years  and keep moving our great nation forward.  We should all be keeping our finances in mind this weekend, and I’ve assembled a list of links that will help you do just that.  Enjoy!

  1. One can hope that both sides will put our interests at heart, but I really don’t see a wholel ot of that happening. Especially seeing as that we sent most of the same people back. But, I could be wrong…one can hope. 🙂

      It’s interesting to hear how much was spent on the campaigns for President and congress across the country (did I hear 6 billion???)….and we basically ended up with the same political landscape. Maybe both sides of the isle will see that the last 4 years wasn’t as productive as it could have been and learn a lesson. Like you said, John, one can hope!

      I have to agree. I have no idea how Mr. Obama was reelected with all his failed policies, devastating unemployment, and now more layoffs. And that deficit! Whoa! I agree that it would be nice if both sides would work together. It would be really nice if the Senate would work with the House. Harry Reid really needs to agree on a budget or come up with one himself (with other Senate members). Confidence is definitely on the down-swing. So this site about being frugal is really, really helpful!


  2. Thank you Travis!! Best of luck with getting your “writing mojo” on … weekends are a great time for that. 🙂

    Thanks so much for including our fiscal cliff article!

    • Travis says:

      Very informative article, Glen…..and it scared the crap out of me. I hope congress gets something done – in the meantime I think I need Vonnie and I may need to reconfigure our spending/savings ratio – that cliff looks STEEP! Have a great weekend!

  4. My Personal Finance Journey’s post on Envelope Budgeting is definitely interesting. I used it before we registered for online payments and we are still using it to pay some of our bills. So far, it is still working for us. Thanks for sharing!

    • Travis says:

      I’m loving the envelope method…Vonnie and I are using and paying cash has done wonders for us to keep on budget! Thanks for stoping by, Manette!
