As I write this, I’ve just finished field dressing an elk that I harvested on saturday. I’ve been working on trimming it up for about 3 hours every night except for sunday, which I worked on it all afternoon while H was snoozing. I’ve gotten the whole thing trimmed and cleaned, but I still need to grind the pieces I’m going to grind and wrap all of the other pieces. It will probably take most of the weekend, and then I’ve got to figure out where I’ll put it all – I’ve got some space in a freezer of a friend of mine which I’ll probably take advantage of.
Lindy over at Minting Nickels talks about her frugal jedi mind trick. I’ve got to say that this is a great idea, and my favorite part of it was defining a dinner out. I’ve found that that’s a slippery slope where you can write off certain times of going against your budget.
Tim From Faith and Finance talks about how to overcome project overload over at the yakezie. I seem to have this problem at times – I feel like I toss a bunch of things up into the air and try and keep some of them floating while I take care of 1 of them, and keep continuing like that. Not exactly the best way, but the only one I know at this point.
SPF has a great article on why no one is buying electric cars. This is pretty thought provoking, and for someone like me who usually drives long distances (when I drive at all), electrics aren’t feasible. They are giving it a trial run in Hawaii, which I think could provide some interesting results.
The Money For College Project has an infographic (love those things) on surviving the college dining hall. As I remember campus dining halls, they were an amazing place where you could put soft serve on your cheerios at breakfast, eat way to many tacos for dinner, and basically get whatever you wanted.
Erin from Dog Ate My Wallet has a post on her brothers new venture - an interesting way to earn a living, I think. I had never even thought of doing something like that, but I imagine it could be fun for the right person!
