Happy Friday everyone! How was your week? Do you have any plans for Easter? Whatever your plans are, I hope you have a great Easter Holiday. This week has been a busy one for me, my little girl has been off nursery due to the Easter Holidays so I’ve been trying to keep her busy and entertained. She’s looking forward to going back next week and seeing her friends again. 🙂
Today’s post is a mash up of announcements!
I will get back to my Friday’s Fab Links feature soon, but today, I wanted to mention quite a few things, so here goes!
This week, I was honoured to take part in the Financial Literacy Awareness Carnival which was hosted by the wonderful Shannon from The Heavy Purse. Financial literacy is such an important message so if you haven’t already, please check out the money a-ha moments which many talented bloggers have shared as part of the Carnival. If you haven’t yet seen my contribution, you can read about my epic money a-ha moment here.
Thank you to Lyle at The Joy of Simple who mentioned my post about Noisy Neighbours earlier this week! (Still haven’t managed to sort anything out about this situation!) If anyone else has mentioned me recently, please let me know so that I can thank you as I don’t always get ping backs.
I’m really pleased to announce that A Disease Called Debt was voted one the Best Finance Blogs of 2014 by Broadview Networks this week! I was contacted by them a couple of weeks ago to say that I had been nominated and I heard back on Wednesday that my blog had been selected. If you want to take a look at the complete list of Best Finance Blogs as selected by Broadview Networks, here’s the announcement!
Last week, so many of you gave me some great frugal gardening tips, so thank you very much to everyone that commented! Your tips have been really helpful, I’ve been looking at tulips, hostas and growing from seeds already. Something else I did which was really frugal was to ask my parents whether they had any plants that they didn’t want. I was expecting them to say no, but they actually did have some plants and containers that they didn’t have much room for! So I managed to get hold of some already established shrubs free of charge. Yay!
Finally, I’m posting over at Debt Advice Blog today. Do you ever find yourself wanting more than you already have or not being completely satisfied with what you’ve got? It can be a dangerous situation to be in, because ‘wanting more’ often costs more and we can end up in financial trouble if the cycle of wanting more continues. Please head on over and read my full post!
Have a great Easter and I’ll be back next week!
