VIP Club Roundup – 18th Edition

 

VIP Club RoundupYo, VIP! Let’s kick it!

 

What up party peeps? The VIP Club Roundup is back! We are thrilled to be back in full force after an awesome vacation to the Dominican Republic…or as some of our friends from The Great White North like to call it Punta Canada. We had a super busy week, trying to play catch up and all. However, I did manage to get our taxes done. Yay for that being over with, and we even got a little refund! Between all of that, we even managed to get a few blog posts in this week. Here they are, just in case you missed them:

 

 

But, enough about us! Let’s get to some of those fancy search terms!

Here are some of the “best” search terms that brought people to Club Thrifty this week:

What is Holly Obsessed With This Week?

So, as you probably guessed by some of our posts this week, we are both officially obsessed with Game of Thrones. Season 2 just came out on DVD and Amazon Instant Video last Tuesday…and it is SWEET! So sweet, in fact, that we have almost made it through the entire season twice. For those of you who haven’t seen it, here is the trailer for Game of Thrones: Season 2:

 

 

 

How’s that for some awesome, eh? So, once you’ve ordered the show, go ahead and read the books too! They are brilliant!

 

 

Top Posts of the Week

Here are some of our favorite posts from around the personal finance blogosphere this week:

 

Young Adult Money wrote about food allergies and sensitivities.  He also wrote about the lack of vegetarian options in certain cases.

 

Frugal Rules wrote about some of the reasons he hates being self-employed.

 

Making Sense of Cents wrote about getting out of debt….with a plan.  I love hearing stories about how others have dug their way out of debt!

 

Monster Piggy Bank wrote about how much money you could save by quitting smoking.  Let me give you a hint.   It’s a lot!

 

Budget and the Beach wrote about longing for the simple times……and I could totally relate.  Life has gotten too damn complicated, I think.

 

Debt Roundup wrote about the dwindling household savings rate.  He also shared an infographic that was just plain depressing.  Sigh.

 

Krantcents wrote about the case against paying off your mortgage.  I am a huge proponent of prepaying your mortgage so we happen to disagree on the subject.  However, I love hearing both sides of the argument!

 

Eyes on the Dollar wrote about the things she missed when she used to blow all her money.  Ahhhh……

 

My Money Design wrote about his Niche Website Project.  I love the idea!

 

NzMuse wrote about the reasons she wants to travel abroad.  Preach it, sister!  I love to travel!

 

Average Joe wrote a post sharing some great stock buying tips.  Thanks, Joe!

 

Frugal Portland wrote about her time in Washington, D.C. and how she was going to tack on a few days to her business trip.

 

Reach Financial Independence wrote about how to save money on travel in the United Kingdom.  Great tips!

 

…and last (but not least) DollarVersity blindsided me with the most important thing that somebody needs to understand about running a business.

  1. Thanks a ton for mentioning me! I seriously appreciate it. And I definitely am going to check out Game of Thrones…way too many people talking/tweeting about it.

  2. Thanks for including me this week :) I will be getting my copy of Season 2 on Wednesday when it finally gets released over here. It is without a doubt the best show I have ever watched.

  3. Thanks for the mention guys! Glad you’re getting your Game of Thrones fix in. :) Have a great weekend!

  4. Thanks for mentioning the post on my blog. Have a great weekend!

  5. That’s picture reminded me of seeing MC Hammer at our state fair last year on the free stage… it was awesome and slightly depressing at the same time.

  6. Thanks for the links, I am in good company. Whenever you make a decision, you should always look at both sides .

  7. hahaha, those search terms are hilarious! Cant believe it`s possible to enter those words and find your blog!

  13. We are also huge GoT fans, but we cut cable so ahhh! We will find a way…

    Nice roundup too!

    • Do you have a Roku box? We ordered the season off of Amazon on our Roku box. The only bad thing is that you can only order last year’s season. Right now, we just got Season 2 and we have to wait an entire year to watch Season 3! Still, I am too cheap to pay for cable…expecially HBO.

  14. We just finished up Downton Abbey Season 2, but then everyone spoiled the end of season 3, so not sure if we’re going to watch it. :\ Have an awesome weekend!

  15. Resume smelled like smoke??? LOL! Wish my resume was on fire! :) Thanks for the mention! Have a good weekend that…and hopefully you can find time to unplug!

  18. Looking at pricing for DR vacations right now! It sounds wonderful. Thanks for the mention!

  19. Those are some interesting search terms. Are you sure you don’t have a hidden members only portion of this site? Seriously though, enjoy your Game of Thrones. A friend of mine has been raving about it all week at work.

    • GoT is so bloody good. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you definitely need to do so!

      PM me and we’ll get you hooked up with the members only section ;)
