Debt Kid

I stumbled on this blog the other day and it has really intrigued me...

In his early 20's, after accumulating over $250K in debt, he began to pick up the pieces and started this blog...

"I started this blog originally as just a journey to keep me on track, as well as have a place to process everything that was happening. That’s still pretty much the focus of the blog, though I do write some helpful posts like how to raise your credit score from time to time.

I don’t know what my future is going to look like. I do know that I’ve grown a ton in the past year, largely in part because of this blog. My readers keep me accountable and inspire me to keep going, even when I get overwhelmed with the enormity of the situation."

These last few years have been a little rough for most people. There has been a shift in focus to eliminating debt and this blog is a great resource.

This blogger has a entire DebtKid Blog Team of about 8 people that contribute to this blog (click the link to meet them) that are all in the process of eliminating their debt. They all have a different story but all share the same ultimate goal.

Follow along these journeys... pick up some interesting information... learn something new...

Jessica tells about the Turning Point in her journey here. She shares an interesting perspective of a situation she had at a bus stop that most wouldn't have even thought twice about.

This post is worth checking out too... You Are Not What You Drive, Right? I hate to admit it but the city I live in is full of what I have heard termed "$30,000 millionaires". Hmmm...
"I drive a Dodge Stratus!"

Here are 5 Lessons From Financial Peace University that are worth taking a look at.

What I have really enjoyed about this blog so far is the honesty. No one has it all figured out... everyone is on a journey... and honest journey to reach their goal and sharing their tips along the way.

Take a browse at DebtKid and take a look around!

I'm an Organizing Junkie!

Meet Laura - a work at home mom in Canada.

Not only does she have a love for organizing (she refers to herself as ' The Freak') but she is darn good at it!

Do you need a little organizing help or someone to just share the "organizing passion" with? Check out her Process to getting your organizing started.

She also does Product Reviews! Get the real scoop on whether or not something is really worth it or lives up to its promises.

How about her affinity for containers? Can anyone else out there relate?
I definitely can... except my picture would be full of wooden baskets of all sorts instead of plastic. I confess that I will use a basket anywhere that I can to store things.

If you have ever surfed the mom blogger world, it would be hard to have missed seeing Menu Plan Monday on someone's blog. Laura is the culprit to starting this link party. Writing menu's weekly has always been something that I do but I like to check hers out (and browse through some of the links) because a lot of times people post the recipes with their menus! I am often looking for ways to get out of my cooking rut of the same 5 meals.

Laura's blog is fabulous and gives that boost of motivation needed to get things organized... or at least the motivation to think about organizing...

Check our I'm an Organizing Junkie and tell her we said Hello!

Tatertots and Jello

Can you tell one of us has been on a crafty kick? Though I haven't actually done a lot of them at my house, I have found my time drooling over wonderful crafty blogs lately... and here is another you will want to be sure and check out!

Get to know Jennifer at Tatertots and Jello. She is a mother, wife and craft extraordinaire!

Have you noticed the new 'number' theme around lately? I have. Check out these wanna be Pottery Barn Pillows. Restoration Hardware has been doing some of the 'number thing' as well. Instead of paying $30 per pillow - she made them herself for $12 total!

I have been eyeing this Cabinet Re-Do since I first started lurking around her blog. (Yes - I was a long time lurker - not sure why I used to be so nervous to comment!) I think it is such a practical idea for a plain cabinet and can easily be changed. This would be perfect for my indecisive self.

She even has an Etsy Shop where you can purchase some of her goodies or order something custom made. Her tutorials are great and her ideas are great. She never seems to run out!

Please click on over to Tatertots and Jello and say HELLO! And don't forget to let her know that you found her on Blabbing About Blogs!

The Sartorialist

Ok.....get ready for one of my all time favorite blogs! The Sartorialist is a blog that posts a picture every day of civilians around New York and around the world who inspire this blogger!

I can't explain it any better than he....

"I started The Sartorialist simply to share photos of people that I saw on the streets of New York that I thought looked great. When I worked in the fashion industry (15 years), I always felt that there was a disconnect between what I was selling in the showroom and what I was seeing real people (really cool people) wearing in real life"

This is...

Luca Rubinacci, Rio de Janeiro

At Rio Fashion....Joana, My New Style Star, Brazil

On the Street....Madison Ave., New York City

Is there anything more fun than pictures of civilians on the street and their fabulous fashion?

You'll want to make this a regular blog stop! Don't forget to tell them you found them from Blog Blabbers!

Simple Thoughts

Simple Thoughts is a blog that walks you through the life of a creative mom. She displays great photography, she shows all her different decorating hints and even shows pictures of how she implements these decorating tips. She has such a cute family and is in love with life.

Here is a post where she discusses her dream of white slip cover heaven but at the end adds in the disclaimer recognizing that white slip covers only last for so long and don't solve problems!

This is Paige and her beautiful girls whom she proudly displays and brags about all throughout her blog!

And this is just to display how creative she is with her photography! This is how she wished all of her followers a Merry Christmas!

Joy the Baker

This self taught baker serves up some delish recipes, amazing pictures, and a little fun to go with it.

Not everything is about baking... this post actually inspired me to start my own "concrete garden" on my patio last summer.

Homemade pasta? I have always been too scared to try but I think this might actually change things for me. (This post links to the sauce recipe which looks amazing - the homemade pasta post link is within this one)
How about these smore's icebox bars? I love smores so this looks like a little piece of heaven to me.
Her amazing talent shines in her blog. She shares her passion and knowledge for baking - you won't want to miss it!

Head on over to say HI to Joy and give her a shout out!

The Mother Huddle

As quoted from their blog...

"The Mother Huddle is just as the name
suggests-a place where mothers can gather and share all the things they would if they were huddled up on a blanket in the park. We are a group of mothers scattered across the country with varying interests, talents and ideas that we share with each other (and anyone else willing to listen) in the form of a blog and seven weekly articles. We encourage you to join in the huddle, have a sit on our blanket and share your talents, and ideas with us as well."

With a little something different every day - this blog will keep you coming back for more!

I have this odd love for journals. Now, I love my computer but there is something about the old fashioned pen and paper that I am drawn to... especially with pretty covers like these.
Here's how on a MAKE IT MONDAY segment.

How about homemade oreo cookies on this Christmas post from MARIA'S KITCHEN?
Umm... yes please!

My baby girl is only 1 but I am going to file this one away to use with her in the future... This CRAFTY KIDS CORNER post shows you how to make a handmade plate for Santa's cookies!

I love this idea of THE BULLET LIST. Whatever the topic is - the goal is to create a list of 20 bullet points. This one is perfect for the New Year... 20 Ways to Add Balance and Simplify.

Check out this post from the SIMPLY CHARMED LIFE segment on having an attitude of gratitude... maybe even start a gratitude journal... in your new hand crafted journal from Make it Monday.

How about this post from SEW BE IT on making a Simple Scarf in 30 minutes!

Or how about these wine charms featured on KATE'S FABULOUS FINDS segment?

So many crafty and creative things along with some soul encouragement all in this wonderful blog! Head on over to browse around for a bit. Don't forget to leave them some comment love and let them know where you found them!

By the way...
HAPPY 2010!
