Frugality Picks and a Meme

This weeks edition of the Festival of Frugality is hosted at On Financial Success. It includes my post “Do Reward Cards Actually Reward You.” Some of my favorites from the rest include:

Inconspicuous Consumption” from Money Changes Things.  Not buying stuff in the first place is even better than recycling.

“10 Frugal and Eco-Friendly Ideas” from Monroe on a Budget. This post shows the overlap between frugal and green.

5 Things You Shouldn’t Go Cheap On” from Know the Ledge.  I mostly agree with these but there are always exceptions.

I also got tagged for a meme by Cricket at Being Booga.  I’m a little late in replying but here are 3 random things about me.

  1. I’ve run 4 marathons despite being overweight and out-of-shape.
  2. I’ve hiked over 1000 miles on the Appalachian Trail and I still have a goal of hiking the whole thing one day.
  3. I was an extra in the movies “The Alamo” and “The Ringer.”

I’m not going to tag anyone else but if you feel like sharing go ahead.

  1. Wow you’re a movie star! I must say, your blog is quickly becoming one of my favorite “must reads” – I really appreciate how candid you are about your past difficulties and how you go about presenting yourself and your challenges now. I love it when it’s REAL! Thanks for participating in the meme! – Cricket
