Sunday round up: Post Independence Day edition

I had a great day grilling out and swimming in the pool yesterday. My goodness, though, the firecrackers were still going off at 3:30 in the morning, so it unfortunately interfered with my sleep a little more than I’d have liked. We’re spending the day relaxing to make up for it.

As long as I’m just hanging out, I figured I’d share some great posts from the week.

From the Pecuniary Associates:

Megan at Counting my Pennies wrote about how she deals with rude questions from unfrugal folks. I hate when people try to justify their poor spending habits by judging me for my smart ones.

Pecuniarities reminds us to focus on the reasons we choose to live frugally instead of obsessing about our methods.

Financial Nut is just returning from a posting hiatus, so I’m sharing something from his archives: how to prepare for job hunting right now.

And from around the blogosphere:

My Two Dollars shares some helpful information about how to fix a mistake on your credit report. You should be checking every year!

Almost Frugal offers a psychological analysis of why carrying big bills can make you spend less. This is absolutely the case for us as we’re experimenting with cash budgeting. I try to keep our money in the largest bills possible to avoid the “denomination effect.” Very interesting post.

I hope you’re all enjoying the end of your holiday weekend!

    Thanks for sharing the links. I just wanted to add that I totally agree with carrying large bills. I recently won money ($100) thru my bowling league and for well over a month I carried around the two fifties. I knew that as soon as I “broke” them, they’d be gone in a minute.
