Apparently it’s that time again and as the countdown to Christmas continues, here is a fabulous list of articles from the personal finance community to occupy your quieter moments. So find an opportunity to buckle down and snuggle onto the couch to sip on a hot drink in your favorite mug. At the moment I am indulging in a mellow toasty coffee with a splash of heavy cream, mmm, and watching tiny birds joyously flit from branch to branch outside the window. Blissful.
So dear reader, laze about with me and enjoy this weekend scouring edition of Broke-Ass Mommy, filled with some winter babies of the fuzzy nature.
Brr! All ready for the winter! (source)
