Linkfest: Short Edition

AMAZING. I want her to also tell me things I should know at 30. Things I wish I'd known when I was 18 (Bullish, via someone on Twitter; sorry, I forgot who!)

I love this line from the Wisebread post on avoiding aspirational spending: "Buy clothes you will wear on a Tuesday afternoon instead of a Saturday night. Very few people lead Saturday night lives." 

Gretchen at The Happiness Project talks about a happiness boost I'm a BIG fan of: controlling your exit. I absolutely hate being stuck somewhere and feeling like I can't leave. That was one of the things I loved about New York - public transportation and/or a cab are moments away, so I was never dependent on "my ride". This can also apply metaphorically, in terms of having enough financial security to be able to leave a bad job or move out of a bad living situation.

And that's it for this week! I'm all over wedding #2 of 5 this weekend, so I'll be scared until the festivities are over. Have a great one!
