This weekend, I’ll be moving the site to a new host. It might get bumpy, but it should be done by Sunday night. I just wanted to give a heads up before I start. My goal after switching hosts is to redesign the site and make it more useful and less cluttered. For instance, I want to change the blogroll to rotate with 7 blog links at a time. I’ve met several interesting bloggers, but hestitate to put the links up because it’ll look too cluttered.If you have any suggestions, please leave them here. I would really like your input on this project.

I can’t believe that October is 2 days away already! A lot of this week’s posts were interesting and I continue to like the variety that these bloggers offer.Free Money Finance has an article on how to save money while traveling. We’re going on vacation in November, so we’ll use some of the advice.Krystal at Give Me Back My Five Bucks already posted her October goals.Lazy Man and Money and The Simple Dollar were examining the benefits and cost of McDonald’s double cheeseburger and homemade cheeseburgers. The Simple Dollar’s examination and Lazy Man’s reviews are here. Get Rich Slowly had a link to RetailMeNot.com which has coupons for tons of stores.We’re In Debt reorganized their site and it’s better than before. Now you can see the posts in order.

Many people in the Personal Finance blog community have shared their thoughts on living a less consumer-centric lifestyle. Some of the best articles I’ve seen are:

I’m trying to cut down on excess waste myself. I can be a packrat at times with things and I’m working on improving that aspect. So far, I’m learning ways to reduce the clutter in my life from Live Simple by John December.Today I was looking at the paper and I noticed an article about freeganism. I never heard of it but the title caught my attention, “From trash to treasure”. I decided to read it and learned about a culture that eschews capitalistic methods of acquiring resources. It seemed like simple living to the extreme. Some people mention in the article don’t shop at grocery stores for their food, they go through dumpsters in search of food. It’s definitely not my cup of tea but I was interested in finding out more about them.I decided to look up online a bit more about this lifestyle and thought it would be something interesting to share. The general idea I got reading some sources is that there’s no definitive means of identifying a freegan. Here are some major concepts within the movement:

  • Minimize their ecological and economic imprint
  • Communal lifestyle (share finds with others)
  • Live off of excess waste (dumpsters of grocers and restaurants)

There are some resources for anybody who wants to learn more.

My question is, Where to you draw the line in simple living? Please leave your comments so others can see.

your_image.jpgI noticed more visitors lately so I thought I might re-introduce myself out there. If you visited from Krystal’s site, I want to say thanks. If you don’t know who Krystal is then I highly recommend you visit her well-written blog Give Me Back My Five Bucks . I check that blog everyday.panda.jpgHello, I call myself online Green Panda.

I have recently married (not one year yet) and have one cat who is both sweet and evil.Some Random Facts:

  • I love Eggplant Parmesan and very few restaurants do it right.
  • I’m looking forward to seeing the new Bionic Woman. (I liked the cheesy old one too.)
  • I’m a Star Trek Voyager fan.
  • I have inconsistent handwriting. It has been known to change in one paragraph.
  • I own a VW Jetta that is a mess due to practically living in it during the week.

While I have taken finance classes in college and am currently taking another one this semester, I’m not a professional financial adviser. I’m just someone who wants to develop good money habits now so don’t have to work hard later.This blog is part diary and part scrapbook of things that I have learned personally or from others experience. I love reading and this gives me an excuse to keep up to take with the latest. Many times you’ll see post based on seemingly random things. I had a post about legal consultations and another on financial aid. These post coexist on this blog because I have gone through it or am currently going through it. For a good example, look at the posts about our car shop nightmare.If people have any ideas or tips, I’d love to hear them. (Thank you Aaron, Julie, and Jorge!) If you like this site, please subscribe to my feed. Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear from you.
