It’s a beautiful first day of Spring here in the Northeast, and I’ve got a bit of an unintentional garden growing thanks to bulbs left in the soil from the previous owners. I’m not well-versed on my flowers, so I have no idea what’s growing and blooming, but they sure are pretty! I also will be planting some flowers of my own and working on the lawn again this year (see what it looked like last summer). This week, I’m highlighting some of the bests posts from the fine folks in our Yakezie group.

No one really enjoys not having enough money — but when do you hit bottom and decide you’ve got to start saving? Enemy of Debt says you’ve got to be tired of being broke.

It’s tax season! Ending the Rat Race wonders if you’re ready to file, and offers some practical advice.
