Well, it is actually Sunday, as I’ve wasted the good part of a day reading the comments on Tim Ferriss’ post (and the accompanying comments about) How to Travel 12 Countries with No Baggage Whatsoever. As a person who travels a bit, there is some fascinating stuff here. I’m not sure I’ll ever be this hard-core, but I know that I could stand to improve my packing and there are some solid tips to be found here.
As if there wasn’t enough interesting stuff about travel, I then fell across this controversial gem: Email from “Morally Conflicted”: Boy, Am I Glad I Walked Away From My Mortgage. This article, and the comments, made me feel very conflicted. Not morally, however, as I’m pretty confident it is wrong to walk away from a debt. However, I am able to see other sides of the equation and maybe, possibly, it isn’t awful. I’m not sure. I’m going to be thinking about this one for a while.
Lastly, an awesomely smart and true post from thefrugalgirl: Want to save big money with your sewing skills? Learn to mend. She is so darn right! I can’t tell you how many articles of clothing I’ve given up because I am too lazy to mend them. And I know how to sew! Mending is an incredibly handy skill and it will allow you to keep your favorite shorts even after an unfortunate rip.
That’s all for now, folks. I am still up to my ears in boxes and they must be unpacked! Hoping you’ve had a great weekend!
