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!

We’ve got some serious spring fever around here, folks! We have had a day or two of nice weather and I’ve been reading some cool spring-y posts around the blogosphere this week. I really love spring, even though it tends to be a soggy muddy time around here. There’s pretty much no point in ever washing a car because it does not stay clean for very long at this time of year! And I hear we are supposed to get snow again next week. Boo!
I have to send another shout out to Michelle at Fit Is The New Poor for nominating me for a Liebster Award this week! I was so thrilled and honored. Then I found out later in the week that I was also nominated by Bre at The Weight of Debt. Thanks very much ladies! It is very much appreciated! Right back at ya, by the way (literally, since I think Bre and I nominated each other on the same day)! I’ve also been recently seeing an uptick in search engine traffic, which has been really cool! I am certainly hoping that trend will continue. So lately life has been pretty good on the blogging front 🙂
Below are the posts we published this week:
Monday March 17- 6 Things You Need Before You Get a Pet
Wednesday March 19- Liebster Award
