Clever Posts Of The Week – February 21st
Welcome to another weekend, Clever friends! This weekend I’m going to a black tie suicide awareness banquet with my wife and some in laws. It should be a good time, except for the fact that I don’t own a suit jacket. The extent of my dress up attire is dress pants, shirt and tie. I wasn’t looking forward to going shopping and dropping a chunk of money on a jacket, so I was doing what any red-blooded male would do: I procrastinated. Luckily it paid off, as my brother-in-law mentioned I could just borrow one of his. SCORE!
Of course, there’s a chance that we won’t get to go at all, as we’re in the middle of a blizzard here in the Midwest even as I type this. Hopefully things will calm down and travel conditions will be better by tomorrow night. If not, I guess I’ll just stay in and balance my checkbook. Haha.
Getting down to business, here’s my favorite posts from the last week:
- Should you feel bad for getting a new job? from DINKS Finance
- How much do you usually spend on Valentineâ€™s Day? from FITnancials
- Iâ€™m Not Going to My Best Friendâ€™s Bachelorette Party from Prairie Eco Thrifter
- Taking Your Budget to the Next Level from Suburban Finance

- Financial Carnival for Young Adults at My Life I Guess

I hope you make it and have a good time! Another win for male procrastination!!
@moneystepper – the blizzard was over Friday morning, but roads were HORRIBLE even on Saturday afternoon. We made it and had a great time…..AND my brother in law GAVE me the entire suit because he said that he has a bunch of them for work and never wears that one. Fits me awesome! Thanks for stopping by!
