Recap Review, August 15 Edition

A quick round-up today as last week’s was so large.  (You can see last week’s blog review list here for many more.) Last week’s largely fitness and health influence carried on into this week, and then it was off to matters of food and frugality.

Week In Review, August 15, 2009

  • First stop, an appointment with the Workout Mommy.  Workout Mommy Lisa is a trained professional personal trainer and fitness instructor who is now working hard to find the balance of her roles and attend to both good health and good parenting…and working to help you do the same.  Get fit with Lisa at Workout Mommy.
  • Kelly Rigotti says she’s not quite frugal yet, but she’s working on it.  You can work on becoming more frugal and saving for the better things in life, too, at her blog, Almost Frugal.
  • From Frugal to Food and travel, blogger Caitlin Fitzsimmons, a native Aussie like our own Sean Rasmussen, is sharing her tales from the road of world exploration and all the great foods and places that go along with life abroad.  Catch up with Caitlin and her Roaming Tales.
  • Perhaps Caitlin and our Dining DC blogger will meet somewhere along that traveling road, as Dining continues to eat, enjoy, and review all of the top 100 restaurants in the Washington, DC area.  Get the real goods on the best of the best in DC dining at From Komi To Marvin.

And that’s if for our week, but we’re diving right back in tomorrow.  I’ll see you there!

Almost Frugal

There is probably not one of us reading this who at some point did not wish that we could be a better master of the arts of frugality. After all, we see them featured on the evening news—those people who can squeeze two dollars out of two cents and consistently get more for less. We think if they can we can, but that’s not always the case.

Almost Frugal – Why You Should Go

Kelly Rigotti, an American ex-pat living in France with her husband and children, is no master either, but she’s working her way towards more frugal living. In part, it’s in the interest of paying off college debts, and in part it’s for the accomplishment. Either way, there’s no arguing that Kelly is better off keeping more of her family’s hard-earned cash.

Her blog is her journey toward frugality. She says she’s not quite frugal yet, but she’s always progressing and learning new things along the way; new things that she shares with us on her blog for our benefit and for hers and in the interest of building a community to help each other along toward their frugal goals. She offers many tips and tricks, loads of information, and even a “Quick Start” guide for newcomers.

Summing Up Almost Frugal

Kelly finds herself in a place where many of us do—wanting to develop better spending and money management habits for our own good, but not quite at the level of frugal mastery. This being the case, hers is a blog many of us can learn from and feel comfortable calling home.

Go here to check out Almost Frugal.
