Web Hits will be a series of posts containing the interesting/useful links I have seen while scrounging the World Wide Web. Each one will have a specific theme and today will be all about money.

- The Year I Embraced Minimalism and Completed a Yearlong Shopping Ban. This blog post by Cait is really inspiring to me. She challenge herself to a year-long shopping ban! How crazy is that? A whole year? I’m not even much of a shopper but I can’t last in two months! She stopped buying things just because they are cute or in. She just sticks to necessity and that’s it. She saved more than $3,000 because of this. She also managed to pay off her huge students loans in a few years. Cait’s whole blog should be on this list. And another thing, she decided to extend her shopping ban to another year! Kudos, Cait!
- The First Thing You Should Focus on Starting Your Journey to Financial Freedom. This one is a short blog post by Lianne, the author of The Wise Living. This is also something I should re-read a lot. It’s so easy to say that we want to save money but are we really dedicated to it? That is what the post is all about. Re-evaluting what is really important to you financially.
Those are the few articles that sticked out to me regarding money. I might add more to this in the future. God knows I can never have enough references/ inspiring stories/ tips so I can remind myself not to spend money just because I have it.
