Oklahoma Tornado
As a country we’ve been through a lot recently with the Boston Marathon bombing and now the Oklahoma tornado.  As the city of Moore attempts to get back to normal, consider donating in some way if you’re able to help.

Undoubtedly they have a long path to recovery.  Our thoughts are with those who lost loved ones.

Good Reads

Around the web, here’s what I’ve enjoyed reading:

Many people dream of being self-employed and running a profitable business, but Debt RoundUp explains why he walked away from his.

The Frugal Girl recently shared her thoughts on the book, Over Dressed which explains the conditions in which our cheap clothing is made overseas.  Her review was enough to make me think twice about my clothing purchases; I hope to read the book soon.

What do you have to do to become a millionaire?  Have you every mapped it out?  Budgets Are Sexy has had several people join him to declare their steps to reaching a cool million, and one member just became a millionaire after 3 years of hard work!  What are you waiting for?  Join up!

Looking for a fun, frugal way to keep the kids entertained this summer?  Why not try Mom Advice’s recipe for Homemade Sidewalk Chalk Paint.

Tie the Money Knot examines whether a guy should pay on the first date or split the bill.  What do you think?
