Saturday Scoop

by Kay Lynn

It’s the weekend and I wanted to share some articles I’ve been featured in the past week as well as personal finance giveaways going on this week.  So sit back, relax and read on!

Around the Web

Ever have a problem finding a receipt you needed for a return?  That happened to me and I came up with a plan to manage receipts in this article at Couple Money.

Well Heeled Blog included my plans in an article regarding how to spend the payroll tax deduction windfall.

You never know what my fellow Californians will come up with and Dr. Dean from the The Millionaire Nurse Blog found a doozy. He asked some of us Californians on our thoughts on this new (and old) vajayjay treatment.


There are some giveaways being hosted by some of my blogging friends that you should enter.

The Saved Quarter is celebrating one year of blogging by giving away 11 prizes with a total worth of over $250 dollars and the grand prize is $100 cash!  This ends today at 8 pm PT/11 pm ET so enter now (and come right back!).

Thanks for mentioning the $25 gift card giveaway! I am still very excited about it and would love to see more entries! 🙂

Penzo, funny???? I find him mildly amusing, on his good days!

Thanks for the mention, and make sure you tell Len what I said about him!

Thanks for mentioning my giveaway; you’ll have to drop a suggestion or two yourself, I’m sure you have plenty of advice to give (plus, with this mention, you’ll have two entries in the contest). And thanks for cluing me into a few more giveaways; with luck, I can win a few nice prizes, myself. Keep up all your great blogging work!

Roger, you got me over there so I hope my feedback helps. It’s nice to win giveaways; I remember winning books from you.
