From milestone goals to a spirited debate about Starbucks, there's a lot of good reading in the personal finance/frugal world. Here are a few of my favorite posts:
Consumerism Commentary has an insightful piece about the dangers of being penny-wise and pound foolish. Flexo makes good points about preventive medicine, using an accountant and wasting time.
Frugal Girl provided a thoughtful piece about setting goals for her 30th birthday, early retirement and building $2 million in savings. There are also very interesting comments from other bloggers and readers.
No Limits Ladies has a super post on losing $1 million on a company contract, but how lessons from that mistake saved the company lots more in the long run. It's a great read that applies to us all. I've had painful lessons that have yielded long-term dividends.
Starbucks is expanding in China. Mighty Bargain Hunter has an interesting piece about the ongoing expansion of Starbucks. Last week, I also wrote a piece about robust Starbuck earnings and I received some insightful comments about why Starbucks is so popular. Who knew sipping coffee at Starbucks could be a frugal choice?
Mapgirl has a good post about lessons we can pull out of work. She includes a link to Madam X who also posted commentarty about the work vs life balance.
Melisa Neuman -- my best frugal friend forever --has a terrific post about strategies for handling bait-and-switch sales.
And as always, I'm a big fan of Dumb Little Man, who offered this cute post on de-stinking your home. I love his daily tips in the sidebar, which are constantly updated with financial, household and general living info.
