Hello everyone! Welcome to Weekly Money 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!

Is everyone else enjoying watching the Olympics? I am pretty much the least coordinated person on the planet, so I am in awe of most of the athletes in most of the events. Even the events that I didn’t know existed, like the women’s ski half-pipe, are fun to watch. I can’t ski at all. The hubs tried to teach me a few years ago, but sadly I never made it off the bunny hill!
I’m trying to do a better job this month of checking in on my monthly goals regularly, so that hopefully I won’t have to write yet again on next month’s goals post that I did not achieve something! I have a couple things on the to-do list for this weekend yet to check off- gotta keep myself accountable you know.
There has actually been a lot going on in our personal life this week, which is why I haven’t been as good about responding to comments (or email) this week, but we are still processing it all so I think I will save it for a different blog post. I hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Any big plans out there?
Below are the posts we published this week:
Monday Feb. 17- How to Increase Your Net Worth Automatically
Wednesday Feb. 19- Time: The Ultimate Commodity
Here are some articles we enjoyed from other sites this week:
Robert at Money Rebound writes, Is Getting a Good Salary More Important Than Having the Job You Really Want? Robert does a great job of pointing out the most important aspects of this decision and gives some guidance on how one might go about making a decision such as this.
Claire at Ready for Zero writes, Battle for Cable Consumers Heats Up as More Customers Choose to Cut the Cord. I was very interested to read this post because the hubs and I are starting to do more research on cable alternatives and are considering cutting the cord ourselves.
Michelle at Fit Is The New Poor writes, New Business Chronicles II: Forcing a Slow Down. I love this article in part because I just really like Michelle’s writing style, but also because she touches on a subject that I personally experience frequently: trying to do too much!! If you have that same issue, you’ll definitely want to check out this article.
Hayley at A Disease Called Debt writes, The Emotional Stages of Debt: Passion. I really appreciated this post because I think passion is a critical and frequently-overlooked ingredient in debt payoff. Hayley breaks this down and examines it in detail for us.
J. Money at Budgets Are Sexy writes, The Number You Need To Retire Safely? I like this post because I am always interested in posts that offer up concrete advice on numbers- in this case, the multiple of your expenses that will allow you to retire early. If you are interested in early retirement, this post is definitely worth checking out!
