Happy (almost) end of March! How do your March Madness brackets look? In the trash like mine? What a weird tournament this year but fun to see the upsets! Major League Baseball starts on Thursday so that means the weather has to start warming up for us Northerners soon right? Geez, I thought last year’s winter drug on forever. Oh well, let’s warm things up in here with the Hump Day Heat!
Mrs. DS’s Picks for the Week:
Stephanie with Healthy, Savvy & Wise: I love this blog name! It encompasses basically all of my life goals in 3 words?! Check not only how she can manage money, but also how she can make a daily routine stick to it. Which, in my opinion, is also just as important as managing your money!
Sarah at Diamonds N’ Denim: plans to retire in 2027. Before the age of 31! ~ insert an oh my, I need to know this gal! She plans on living a minimalism lifestyle, yet one filled with inspiring and empowering actions. One way is to convince everyone we all have an entertainment addiction. Find out how to kick yours!
Mr. DS’s Favorites:
Big ERN at Early Retirement Now writes that owning a home is an investment. And when I say writes, I mean he charts, graphs, and analyzes the numbers like none other! I couldn’t agree more with the assessment. We were fortunate enough to experience this as we sold our first home a couple of years ago. That baby sure appreciated in the 8-9 years we owned it!
Lily at The Frugal Gene killed it with an epic rant on why most discussions on race, class, income, and privilege are dumb. This post had everything from cat noises, a dinkwad reference, to addressing Bluehost affiliates. So much awesomeness from a very talented writer!
