A Random Fact about Aviation
Anne’s friend did his master’s thesis on creating a bio aviation fuel using wood pellets. The technology is definitively not good enough, yet.
What We Talked About This Week
When was the last time you went for a picnic? Anne gave us a rundown on How to Pack a Picnic for Adults on Monday.
Michelle reminds us that You Will Retire One Day, You Might as Well Start Saving Now, on Wednesday.
Free photo editing was all the rage on Thursday, with a quick tutorial and explanation of how to add text to pictures for free, from Anne.
Carnivals and Mentions
Thanks everyone, we really, really appreciate it!
A Pretty Thing on Amazon
What good is money if we can’t do anything with it? Here’s something pretty that you could buy with your money.
Mason Jar Flower Frog
I am judging the crap out of this product for choosing to use carnations in the photograph, however, it’s a cute and super practical lid. When you put a few little flowers in a vase, like the ditch daisies that my spouse lovingly brings me (with a healthy dose of sarcasm over bringing me stuff found for free on the side of the road), they fall over to the side and look sad. Not with this thing! They would also be great for doing wedding flowers.
Money Thought of the Week
Math is important. You can’t manage your finances without it. Understanding interest is one of the most important things you learn in high school math classes.
Your Turn: Linky Party!
What is a Linky Party? It’s a tool that lets you link up your posts, and check out other people’s posts. Friday Jetfuel features a linky party that is open (accepting links) for one week, Friday to Friday, each week. Make sure to come back and link up each week!
Next week, we will feature one or two posts from this week’s linky. Ones that were wildly popular, ones that I found particularly interesting, or ones that came up with the roll of the dice! Maybe you can even bribe me to be featured, no one’s tried it, yet!
What flies for this linky?
You can link up anything that relates to money: earning more, observations about behaviour, saving money, spending money, developing your career, investments, frugal (or not so frugal) meals, giveaways, etc. Make sure your image is PG13 and safe for work.
Please do not link to carnivals or link round up posts. It doesn’t matter how old the post is that you choose to link up. Use your best judgement, and I will use mine. I reserve the right to remove links for any reason.
If you do link up, please link back to us, so that more people can find the linky and discover all of the great information that is out there.
How to Link Up
Click on the “Click here to enter” below. It will ask you for a URL that goes directly to the post (http://moneypropeller.com/love-mini-fridge/ NOT http://moneypropeller.com), the title you want to use, an email address, and a photo. It gives you the option to select one of the pictures that is already on the post (and then crop it to 160×160), upload an image, or use a placeholder image. That’s it! All you really need to do is copy and paste your URL in, and type a few things.
Once you’ve entered, please visit a few of the other links and comment on some posts!
