Weekend Roundup — Studying Edition

I’m trying to learn a bit more about CSS, design, etc. One advantage of working at the library is that I’ve made full use of their resources. I’d like to see a book specifically on CSS for WordPress. But so far, haven’t seen anything.

So besides working my usual mix of crazy weekend shifts, I’ll be learning. You probably won’t see any changes on here soon. This week, I participated in the Carnival of Personal Finance and the Festival of Frugality. Here are some of my favorite posts from each:

The Carnival of Personal Finance included my piece about whether or not it’s worthwhile to sell on Amazon–casually.

And the Festival of Frugality included my post on how frugality increases your quality of life for less.

  • Kris at Cheap Healthy Good wrote a great post on how to evaluate a cookbook. I love it. So many good points here! All the libraries that I’ve worked at have great cookbook selections and many more available from other county branches. You can find almost any cookbook at the library and give it a try before buying. In fact, you can just use ones from the library and don’t have to buy them at all. That’s why libraries pay inflated prices.
  • Kacie at Sense to Save declared that there will be no more deprivation in the name of frugality. Made me think of my submission about frugality’s importance being to improve our quality of life and not just our bank accounts.

Off to study some more!! Have a great weekend everyone.

Thanks for the mention, Mrs. Micah! Two readers also suggested trying to buy used cookbooks and/or swap them, which I didn’t even think of. Good calls.
