Linkfest: Loooo-ooooong Edition

I didn't realize until today that my Linkfest from last week never got posted, so lucky you - here's two weeks of great content.

I recently found Mutant Supermom's blog, and this post about 27.5 reasons she coupons is one of the reasons I'm enjoying reading her.

I LOVE this post's How to Be Prettier, although I consider it a How to Be Smarter AND  How to Be Less Awkward tip.

Lifehacker has the 10 dishes and drinks everyone should be able to make at home. I can do about half. Which ones can you do?

A PF book club! Want, want, want!! Peanut and I have actually talked about starting a PF book club in real life, but we couldn't find anyone else who was interested. :( So I am ALL OVER THIS! First book: Shortchanged: Why Women Have Less Wealth and What to Do About It. First meeting: November 1. Hashtag: #pfbookclub. Be there or don't be in our book club. :)

I'm definitely a self-curator - that's effectively what this blog is, especially these link round-ups! There's simply so much information out there now that we can't even process it all, much less remember and re-use it.

I found this neat little tool - Typealyzer. It analyzes your blog and tells you what kind of Myers-Briggs personality you're displaying. Here's mine: ESFP - The Performers.

The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.
In reality, that is the complete opposite of me. No, seriously - I've been tested several times and I am way-at-the-opposite-end INTJ. So, is the test wrong? Do I come off online totally differently than I do in real life? Is blogging an attempt to reconcile two divides senses of self?

I have no idea, but I thought it was neat.

I love this best kept secret for frugal living! It's so true - it's simple, but not easy.

An emergency kit (for school, car, work, or home) is a great idea - and not just for kids. In New York, I always kept flats and some other items in my desk (a 14-flight evacuation taught me that!) but I haven't made the same arrangements here.

Things truly have changed in the workforce in the last twenty or thirty years, and I agree - you do now have to act like you're a consultant rather than an employee. The tips in that post will help you hone the skills that allow you to do so.

I love this! 13 pieces make 31 outfits - amazing! I've been feeling the "woe is me, I've got nothing to wear"s lately, but I might need to take a closer look because I've definitely got more than 13 pieces, so I can probably make enough outfits to last until Thanksgiving.


  1. That 'how to be prettier' post is great! Thanks for sharing.

    The Typealyzer got me 50 percent right. I generally test out as an ISFJ and it pegged my blog as an ESFP. I KNOW I'm an introvert, but I also know it's natural to project as an extrovert on a blog, because blogging in and of itself is kind of an extroverted act.

  2. Thank you for the mention! I'm way behind lately in the blog world. I'm glad you enjoy reading the blog. Some of these links you have here are absolutely fantastic.
