Hello again and welcome to another roundup! As I continue to get back into a groove, I want to be sure to feature some great posts from my favorite bloggers.

To be frank, I’m still settling on a day. I think Sunday is a good day, but for some reason, I keep pushing it out to Monday. Maybe that’s just procrastination, but I may stick to Monday – we’ll see.

Either way, you can expect to see these somewhere around there end/beginning of the week. 🙂

So, let’s hop to it – here are my favorites from the past week(ish).

1. 10 Popular Songs About Financial Independence

What’s the one thing I might actually love more than financial independence? Yup, you guessed it: music. There’s a reason my Gravatar features me in a pair of headphones – I’m always listening to music. That’s also why I loved this post from Savvy History.

Although nowadays a lot of songs are just a bunch of formulaic beats designed to sell as well as possible, it wasn’t always that way. (Side note: there is definitely still good music, although it may not always be mainstream like in the “old days.”)

In the old days, most music had substance because artists weren’t quite as worried about maximizing profits. Or, at least that’s my take. Back in the day, they were actually teaching us about money!

Head over to the link above for this post from Savvy History – I really enjoyed it and thought it was a creative take.

2. The Best Frugal Living Tips You Should Implement Now

This post from Savebly is a bit of a no-brainer – given that yours truly made the cut, hah.

However, I’m not the only one mentioned. Michael from Savebly rounded up tips from lots of different bloggers, and there’s some great stuff here.

For example, Frugal Thrifty Mom mentions cutting out meat. This is something I personally I am working toward lately – though my reason is a bit different. Though I am obviously a self-proclaimed frugal dude, I’m doing it for sustainability purposes. But, of course, it also saves money!

Make sure to check out this post from Savebly for some great frugal living tips.

3. The Cost of College is Up 3000%

This post from Abigail at I Pick Up Pennies was another easy choice for me, given that I talk about rising college costs a lot.

As you may also know, it’s not just that one post, either. I attended a private school and racked up nearly $100,000 in student loans. While I did enjoy college and felt college was “worth it,” I definitely feel it could have – and should have – been cheaper.

Be sure to check out this post from I Pick Up Pennies for more stats about this accelerating problem in our economy.

So there you have it – my favorite posts as of late. I hope you enjoyed this post of TFF’s frugal roundup – stay frugal!

Hey there. My name is Bob Haegele and I blog about personal finance here at The Frugal Fellow. I’m also an alternative energy and EV enthusiast and have recently become semi-vegetarian. Another thing I started doing recently? Dog walking. I’m now doing that as a side hustle and loving it! I’m now working toward financial independence making money via my own ventures. If you’d like to work together, send me an email.
