Game Time!

This is my favorite time of year! Fall is almost here, school is in full swing, and football is starting!! The Steelers had a great season last year, and we are looking forward to another great year. I especially love that I can share this love with Brad - although he has much more football knowledge than I do! Riley is learning a lot already and asking lots of good questions!

If you missed my post about the Super Bowl win this past winter, you can catch it here!

Here we go, Steelers, here we go . . .!!

Set Your Sites on Money!

I enjoy personal finance and finding small ways to cut back on spending. We live on less than we make, and I encourage you to do the same! I did a series called "Saving Smart!" in October that got some great feedback. If you missed it, you can catch all of my money-savings posts from that series here.

For now, I I thought I would share some of my favorite blogs and web sites with money savings tips and investing tips.

Get Rich Slowly (very sound advice, good for those who are past the initial stages of money management)

The Simple Dollar (great blog and Trent is a great guy)

Dave Ramsey (who hasn't heard of Dave Ramsey by now?!?)

Crown Financial (especially their calculators!)

I Will Teach You to Be Rich (bad name, great advice - especially good for the younger crowd)

Do you have a favorite not listed here? And what are your favorite money-themed podcasts? I would love to know what your favorites are - please feel free to share! There are LOTS of great sites out there - these are just a few of my faves!
