Paycheck Chronicles

28 August 2010 Saturday Roundup

Well, it is actually Sunday, as I've wasted the good part of a day reading the comments on Tim Ferriss' post (and the accompanying comments about)  How to Travel 12 Countries with No Baggage Whatsoever.  As a person who travels a bit, there is some fascinating stuff here.  I'm not sure I'll ever be this hard-core, but I know that I could stand to improve my packing and there are some solid tips to be found here.

As if there wasn't enough interesting stuff about travel, I then fell across this controversial gem:  Email from "Morally Conflicted":  Boy, Am I Glad I Walked Away From My Mortgage.  This article, and the comments, made me feel very conflicted.  Not morally, however, as I'm pretty confident it is wrong to walk away from a debt.  However, I am able to see other sides of the equation and maybe, possibly, it isn't awful.  I'm not sure.  I'm going to be thinking about this one for a while.

Lastly, an awesomely smart and true post from thefrugalgirl:  Want to save big money with your sewing skills?  Learn to mend. She is so darn right!  I can't tell you how many articles of clothing I've given up because I am too lazy to mend them.  And I know how to sew!  Mending is an incredibly handy skill and it will allow you to keep your favorite shorts even after an unfortunate rip.

That's all for now, folks.  I am still up to my ears in boxes and they must be unpacked!  Hoping you've had a great weekend!
