H and I are all moved in to our new place, and are currently living in the basement while we are renovating the upstairs. The basement is pretty hideous – was last redone in the 70s or so and it’s got some gross brown and tan carpet everywhere. Even though it’s small, it’s still a bit more room than our old place, and it’s just the basement! We have finally gotten back to a semi normal schedule and are eating home cooked meals. Unfortunate, we dont have a stove/oven so everything’s going to be done in the crock pot or the rice cooker until our kitchen is useable again – which hopefully will be soon.
On to this week’s links.
Joan over at man vs debt has a great post on side hustles. I cant say enough about the side hustle, as it really helped kick my debt repayment into high gear from 2009-2011 when I was working 2 jobs for about 70 hours a week, and that didnt include driving. It put more money in my pocket, and didnt give me enough free time to spend any of that extra money, so I just put it towards debt.
J Money has a post about how his water heater broke last week and he blamed it on his poor cat. Replacement of appliances like this is a really interesting scenario, and i’m working on a post about it for the future, and hopefully J will answer some questions for me about the replacement in the post.
Marie at Prairie eco thrifter has an article about using natures bounty. Gardens are a great way to get some very good food for a great price. I’m hoping I can get something planted this year, but it’s not looking great at the moment.
