Weekend Scoop: Posts, Giveaways and Carnivals

by Kay Lynn

My holiday weekend traveling with my grandson went well and I think I’m finally caught up on rest.  It inspired a post or two and I got to spend some wonderful time enjoying Alex and his interactions with my mom and the rest of the family.

Around the Web

Two Fridays ago I wrote about using social media to find freebies and deals at Couple Money. My last staff post there was about challenging the property tax assessment for your home.

There were some great articles in the third Yakezie Blog Swap two days ago.  Eric at Narrow Bridge published a round-up highlighting these great stories about a time the writer splurged and was glad.
