Spruced Up: Playoffs Edition

Now that we’re post-holidays, I’m glad I can sit back, relax, and enjoy some football! (while reading my favorite PF posts, of course!) Here are a few on my favorites from the week:

Andrea at Nickel by Nickel is debt free for all but her house! Congratulations!

Jana at Daily Money Shot launched “Bloggers Give Back,” which I’m happy to support and participate in

Retire By 40 posted a comparison of net worth versus the S&P 500.

PK at DQYDJ posted a visualization of IRS revenues. Love the interactiveness!

Prairie Eco-Thrifter featured a post about filling your gas tank and emptying your wallet.

Sam at Financial Samurai gave us his predictions for 2012.

Hunter at Financially Consumed told us about Failure Club, which teaches us why we shouldn’t be afraid to fail.

Money Cone shared some wisdom on light bulbs (important with the extinction of incandescent bulbs soon).

JT at Money Mamba gave us some surprising stats on store returns.

Carrie at Careful Cents wrote about about avoiding overdraft fees (something I’ve learned more about recently!)

KrantCents scared us with some landlord nightmares (ahhhh!)

John at Married with Debt wrote about selling his car for funding an emergency.

My beer pick of the week: River Horse Oatmeal Milk Stout I’m really enjoying the stouts right now, so be sure to check this one out.
