Weekly Round-up Post-its

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.

Get ready for the most fabulous donuts you've ever tasted.Using only the best ingredients money can buy has made us a huge hit amongst celebrities across the country. No greasy aftertaste, zero trans fats,very low total fat (only 3 - 4 grams per donut) and 25% fewer calories. These are real donuts made with real donut ingredients.
Our patent pending cooking process avoids deep frying creating a light, fluffy donut that you will love! No grease-no guilt just a really great donut!
When our Boston Cream donut was compared side by side to a Krispy Kreme Boston Cream donut on the CBS Morning Show by their nutritionist, not only did they say it tasted great but It actually showed our donut only had 3.8 grams of fat compared to the other donuts 20 grams of fat and our donut was actually larger! (click on the CBS logo to see the video)

Holey Donuts!(tm) has gained tremendous popularity and much critical acclaim with celebrities from Broadway to L.A, "there is nothing "low fat" about the taste of these donuts" says one taster. Holey Donuts! is such a smart concept now we can eat more donuts and not look like one!
- We don't make "diet "donuts We just make better donuts!
- very low fat and 25 % fewer calories than regular donuts
- 0 trans-fats
- 0 cholesterol and no artificial sweeteners or fat substitutes, they taste great.
- Used and endorsed by Zone Chefs from New York To L.A
Seen on the CBS morning show.Mentioned in Every Day with Rachael Ray,The New York Daily News,Yahoo Finance and even MSNBC online has written about our donuts .
FDA approved lab testing proves low fat claims.
Because our donuts are so low in fat and contain no hydrogenated oils they must be kept frozen untill ready to enjoy -So we ship frozen via Fed Ex,usually your donuts arrive the next day.
