I spent quite a few hours this week calculating and recalculating terms, rates and loan amounts in an attempt to determine whether or not my husband and I should refinance one or both of our mortgages.

On the other hand I do like the idea of shrinking our monthly mortgage payments by a few hundred dollars each month.

In general I’d like to see more money piling into savings. I investigated our recent expenses and tried to figure out where we could trim a few more expenses.

I certainly didn’t read all of them, instead I skimmed over the titles of my favorite feeds and discarded the rest. So without further ado here are my favorite posts.
