What I’ve Been Reading This Week

I thought I’d start a new feature for Fridays called What I’ve Been Reading where I get to share some of my favorite recent blog posts from around the web. (I will admit that I mostly read frugal blogs, but every now and again I venture out of my comfort zone!)

Here’s what makes the list this week:

  • Stop the Summer Brain Drain @ My Coupon Teacher. Shelley is an elementary school teacher and shares her frugal tips for keeping your kids engaged in learning even during the summer. (I read these tips very guiltily, I’ll tell you that.)
  • The Tzniut Project @ the Kvetching Editor. Chaviva has rounded up an impressive collection of now 23 personal biographies from women across the Jewish spectrum talking about their feelings on tzniut. It’s been a fascinating read for the wannabe sociologist in me.
  • Saving Money on Prescription Drugs @ Cheapskate. Susie has guest posted on KOAB (here, here and here) and always has a wealth of information to share. Her post on prescription drugs is no exception. If you are struggling with the cost of prescription meds, this post is a must read!

Are you a blogger? Would you like me to link to a post on your blog? Send me an email and spam me with the link.

Have you read some amazing blog posts this week? Please share in the comments section.



  1. Cooking Manager had a post not too long ago about cooking with kids, and it inspired me to bring my toddler into the kitchen to help me bake. It was a great decision, and even though I had to relinquish control (!!!), I was so glad I did it.

  2. Thanks, Mara and Rivki! Yosefa can take credit for the preschooler’s post of course.

    Shavua tov.

  3. Thanks for sharing! The cooking w/preschoolers subject was Hannah’s idea, but I can always type a few hundred words of advice with a baby on my lap! Check out more tips and recipes on my blog. Maybe you could share my apron giveaway with your readers. They are cute and I made them myself and (unfortunately for me) the odds of winning one are VERY good! http://nonrecipe.blogspot.com/2011/07/apron-giveaway.html You can see my kids modeling a couple on Hannah’s blog.

  4. Mara,

    Thank you for showcasing my post. More importantly, you have humbled me by your kind words. I look forward to meeting you soon!


    P.S. Start practicing saying NO.

  5. Thanks for the shoutout to Cheapskate, Mara! (Shavuah tov)
