Along the Journey Weekly Roundup #6: Celebrating Women’s Heritage Month

by Mike on March 9, 2010

Every Tuesday, I will post a link roundup of articles I’ve found while researching the Internet. As you may or may not know, March is Women’s Heritage Month! The tagline is Writing Women Back into History. In honor of that, this week I will highlight Women who are writing and making history!

Below are just a few of the awesome female PF bloggers out there.

Editor’s Picks

Kristen, author of The Frugal Girl was recently featured on The 700 Club, a national Christian news/talk show that has been around for over 40 years. I grew up watching The 700 Club so it was very cool to see a PF blogger recognized for their frugal skills. Congrats Kristen! If you’re looking for savvy grocery shopping tips, check out Kristen’s latest Grocery Report and Menu plan. She is very transparent and often includes pictures. (@TheFrugalGirl)

Shawanda, author of You Have More Than You Think also has a very inspiring story. She eliminated $25K of debt in a year with something she calls “extreme frugality”. Recently, Shawanda wrote a thought provoking article called Why You Can’t Enjoy Your Money and Your Life. If you find yourself always striving towards the next accomplishment and rarely enjoying what you’ve already accomplished, it may be worth a read. (@TheyCallMeCheap)


Alyssa, from Kingdom First Mom shares how to enjoy Disney World Frugal Style. (@KingdomFirstMom)

Elle, from Couple Money, shares her stories and adjustments to having One Family Car for the Week. (@Elle_CM)

Patrenia from Personal Finance Notebook lists practical proactive and reactive information in How to Lose Your Wallet Without Going Broke.(@patreniaspears)

Kelly, author of Almost Frugal recently published a guest post about being overwhelmed by debt collectors. Are you in awe of Debt Collectors? Know your rights. (@almostfrugal)

Mrs. Accountability (Out of Debt Again) is going for the genius book of world records for The Winning Receipt coming in a 6ft in length! The catch? She only bought 1 item! This was a funny post, but she also provides insight into how her family stocks up when they catch a good deal. (@outofdebtagain)

“Bucksome”, the voice behind Buck$ome Boomer lists 5 Tips for Selecting a Kennel. Something most animal lovers will need to consider before going on an extended vacation.

Tomorrow we will continue our Manners and Money series!
