Hello everyone! Welcome to Saturday Morning Roundup! Here I wrap up happenings here at Color Me Frugal during the week and share with you some of my favorite posts that I enjoyed from other sites this week. I hope you’ll enjoy!
This week winter arrived in our part of the world! We got about six inches of snow. Along with it came some really cold temperatures. It was -16 degrees outside this morning. Our two little dogs made it all of about three minutes on their morning walk today before they were ready to go back inside! I briefly caught the national weather news this morning and it looks like crazy weather across the US right now. It’s going to be a good weekend to work on blogging I think. 🙂
Below are the posts we published this week:

Tuesday 12/3/13- 5 Financial Tips I’ve Learned From Bloggers
Wednesday 12/4/13- Passive Income/Side Hustle Update: November 2013

Here are some articles we enjoyed from other sites this week:
Shannon at The Heavy Purse writes How to Create Your Child’s Holiday Gift List. Shannon offers some great tips on how to help children narrow the list down to items they really want and learn some great money lessons while doing it!
Daisy at Suburban Finance writes Frugality At Its Finest. Daisy points out that some of the wealthiest individuals in the world live a frugal lifestyle. A very interesting read!
Matt from Mom and Dad Money writes Should Young Investors Really Fear a Market Downturn? This post examines the fears that investors have about market downturns and offers wise advice for young investors.
Mario at Debt BLAG writes, Would You Buy Ugly Fruit and Vegetables if it Could Save You Money? I like this post because it examines a topic that I’d never even stopped to consider before and makes an excellent point against waste.
Sam at Financial Samurai writes Do You Work Harder or Relax More During Good Times? This post really resonated with me because I regularly encounter people who appear burned out in their current positions but feel slave to the paycheck. Sam makes the argument that we need less than we think and that the real cost may very possibility be to our own level of happiness.
