Friday Night Link Fest

Cate at BudgetConfessions confesses that she loves to sign up for free samples, even if it's not the best use of time. I agree! I love getting free stuff in the mail, and I use a plug in on my toolbar so those forms get filled out with one click--you can't get faster than that! I've gotten great stuff, including full size products and even some expensive stuff, like an electric toothbrush!

WellHeeled included me in her BlogHer article For Love Or Money, about spending money (and making money!) from your hobbies. This is the first year since I started performing that I will not turn a profit, but c'est la vie with school and a promotion. I look forward to just being able to go back to class right now, much less bring in surprise cash.

I have never been super crazy about the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, but maybe it was the price--this recipe sounds awfully good and cheap! FrugalDreamer is one of three new blogs I stumbled upon this week (the other two are Not a Buddhist and Serendipity's Guide to Saving). Check them out!

Not at all PF-related, but what do you think Wikipedia flavor tastes like? I think it tastes a little bit like everything.

I will probably be a bit scarce for a few days--heading up to a wedding this weekend, which will require a four hour drive each way, which is more driving than I do in a typical month. And I'm coming down with a cold.

  1. Oh, I could waste away hours hunting down free samples online! Probably not the most productive use of my time, though :P

  2. Thanks for linking to me! Setting up a plugin to fill in your information sounds like a great idea--you're right, it doesn't get much easier than that.

    I'm also eager to try Frugal Dreamer's pumpkin spice latte. It looks delicious!
