In case you weren’t reading plonkee money this time last year, here are a few of the best posts from April 2007

  • atheists should tithe - well, it’s really about why humanists should donate to charity, but I’m sure you get the idea. If you’re interested in atheism and related stuff, you might want to check out my other blog, the religious atheist (yes, I know that’s a shameless plug ;) )
  • tourist in London town - some great frugal tips if you’re ever in London, from how to get from the airport to what you can see for free in the city (and there’s lots of it). Should you instead be in the capital of America, check out the guest post I had from Mrs. Micah
  • money scripts: voting (part 2) - with elections coming up in all sorts of places, this is a reminder of some of the things that I think about when I choose who to vote for

If you want to read some other great posts, this time from April 2008, check out:

  • setting up a special savings account @ single guy money - don’t use your credit card for your gadget-y wants. Instead set up a special savings account for them, and earn interest instead of paying it
  • how Micah sent roses in Italy for $30 @ mrs. micah - if you think local then you can often get a great bargain. I am jealous, but keep reminding myself that I don’t even like roses anyway.
  • tips for helping with household budgeting @ my two dollars - we always  need more ideas, and these come with great commenatary
  • 10 can’t miss ways to kickstart snowflaking @ paidtwice - snowflaking is a great adjunct to the debt snowball, if you don’t know what it is, check out paidtwice’s snowflaking primer
  • my biggest budget busters @ being frugal - Lynnae posts here 5 budget flaws. Not all of them are the same as mine, but a few look suspiciously familiar
  • unscrambling the egg @ brip blap - you know, you can’t do it, unscramble an egg that is. Nor can you go back in time and reclaim all those wasted hours. Think before you open your wallet, or waste your time watching American Idol (is that show still on?)
  • labor capital, the forgotten class @ moolanomy - when you’re thinking about your investment portfolio you should take into account that your biggest investment is probably your own labour. Marx had something right after all? Power to the people!
  • flood insurance @ dough roller - a flood is probably the most likely natural disaster to befall anyone in the UK, remember the people being rowed out of Carlisle? Check your insurance to make sure it covers floods
  • top reasons people don’t budget @ gather little by little - since I’m by nature lazy, I assume that’s the biggest reason, everything else is just an excuse
  • my financial mistake @ notes from the frugal trenches - it involves a house purchase and a parent. Check out this new British personal finance blogger and cheer them on to bigger and better.
  • my shopping diet @ cash money life - a guest post about how to conquer a shopping habit. Worth a read before you hit the shops on the weekend, don’t you think?

Wow, that’s a lot of reading material for your weekend. I’ll be expecting you bright eyed and bushy tailed for more sensible (and fun) personal finance on Monday.

  1. Thanks, plonkee. I’m not a big flowers person, but on the first anniversary it meant a lot. I think he’s given me roses twice…the other time was when he got times confused and stood me up. But he showed up with the roses on Mother’s Day which really worried my dad. ;)

    Happy Friday!

  2. He stood you up! That definitely deserves flowers. As for Mothers’ Day, that would definitely freak out any parent.

  6. Thanks for the mention, plonkee! And OH YES American Idol is still definitely on, at least according to everyone at my client who discuss it incessantly every morning…
