This past weekend, I ran my first 5k. I’m glad that I’ve been consistent on my gym going goals up until now, because they sure helped. My only goal was to not stop and walk the whole way, which I did. I’m not addicted to running now or anything, but it’s nice to say that I’ve done a 5k. On to the best links this week.
The Simple Dollar on Cost and Quality. I thought this was a great post. I’ve been known to spend quite a bit of money on my kitchen supplies, and knives are no exception. While the fifty cent knife is a good deal, I just cant do it. Dull knives make me very, very angry. You cant cut with them, they’re dangerous, and the list goes on and on. For me, it’s worth it to spend the money on a solid knife.
White Hot Truth has a post on how she got to “grooving financial prosperity” (whatever that means). Regardless, there are some great tidbits in here, and you’d be wise to follow them.

Well Heeled Sprained her ankle (that sucks), and learned a few things about health insurance in the process.
Mercedes at My Financial Trek is doing some purging. The new year is a great time to get rid of stuff that you’ve found that you no longer use. If you havent touched it in six months, it’s just taking up space and you could probably get rid of it. (On the other hand, what should you do with the 1 suit you always wear, albeit infrequently?)
