What’s Sizzling? – May 22nd Edition

Today’s edition of What’s Sizzling includes some fantastic reads from other personal finance blogs. There’s quite a bunch, so let’s get right to it:

  • Starting off this week is Frugal Dad, who gave us a post on working out an effective and smart couponing strategy. It includes a number of resources for coupons if you like to shop online.
  • From Thinking Money, read about ways to you cut travel costs, including some travel alternatives you may not have considered.
  • Another great guest post at Get Rich Slowly this week. Matt, a long-time reader has shared thoughts about starting a business after job loss. Great for those of you who were recently laid off.
  • We all know how difficult it can be to find a mechanic that will take care of our “babies.” At Blunt Money, you can find a list of questions to consider when searching for that perfect car mechanic.
  • If you’ve ever had a budget fail, it’s possible one of these 10 phrases was the culprit. Stretchy Dollar’s list gives us insight to sentences to keep our of money vocabulary.
  • Gas prices are much lower than at their peak, but many are still choosing to commute to work by bicycle. This great list at One Caveman’s Financial Journey is a great resource for the “what” and “how” of biking to work.
  • Have you ever blown off saving with a really good excuse? Studenomics puts together a nice list of the most common excuses for not saving money, and why they suck.
  • Man vs. Debt’s blog has taken off, and his post this week about 67 ways not to sell a car made the Digg front page. Congrats! (And check out the great post).
  • Money Energy gives us something to consider – saving at least $100 per month by fasting. Call me crazy? Well…call him crazy, but not before you read this great post.
  • And last but not least, Wise Bread hosted this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance, and featured my post on boosting productivity at work.

It’s a three-day weekend, people! Get out and have some fun.
