On Friday of last week, My Personal Finance Journey participated in the 7th Yakezie blog swap. “What’s this strange sounding event?” you may be asking. Well, what transpires is that different members and challengers of the Yakezie Blog Network pair up and exchange posts on a common topic.

This month, our topic was: “Balancing Frugality and Fun.”

My Swap
My partner for this month in the swap was Ashley from Money Talks Coaching. For her post, Ashley reminded us to spend our dollars where they will give us the most happiness.

For my post, I shared 5 different techniques everyone can use to balance frugality and fun at Money Talks Coaching.
