Weekend Roundup-No Cooling Pad Edition

Lake Geneva WisconsinWith the cold weather that has moved in, I’m not using the cooling pad on my laptop today. I need all the heat I can get. Maybe some of these great links I’ve found will help take your mind off the cold weather. Of course, if it’s this cold where you are, well, maybe not.

Free Money Finance celebrates the joys of compounding. At 42 (almost), I can only echo the words of one of his comments, “Oh, if only . . .”

The husband and wife team at Not Made of Money (who is?) has a list of 4 places to find fat in your budget. Maybe it will help you generate some fat in your wallet!
