I was following a blog that was really good.lots of long newsy discussions about things they were doing to not spend so much this year. I also found another blog I like from someone who posted on this blog. My problem is when it's slow at work or I'm needing motivating, I need some new material/more material! The first blog doesnt post as much as at first adn the other does but I know both work fulltime and are busy and tired! I've also been on jane4girls and that one doesn't work at my job..too many pics I guess but I can access individual sections and it's fun seeing her garden and reading about her coupon deals though I 'm not there yet myself! I've seen livingonadime and hillbilly housewife..I'm looking for stuff that's similar but regular people talking about their goals and struggles and stuff they're doing..kinda like what we've been reading in the threads here about saving money and piggy banks and that sorta thing.

anyone have any good blogs they follow they don't mind sharing?

Here is one of my favorite simple living blogs... down-to-earth... it's written by a lady in australia and she has tons of tutorials and inspiration.

Another favorite is the Simple Green Frugal Co-op, several people contribute their writings to this one.

I'm not that big into reading blogs but I do love seeing a lot of different article on one page - I like reading Yahoo's shine a lot. The link is for the life channel, but all the different channels are fun to read and usually are full of good advice.
