Well you might have noticed that my posting schedule is a bit off this week but for good reason though because I’m finally moving into my new house.

Boo Yaa!

This week did not leave much time for writing at all, in fact I was only able to crank out one post which seems kind of pathetic but I like to put some time into my articles and not just whip something together.

On Monday and Tuesday I spent all of my evenings installing appliances and getting stuff ready to move.  On Wednesday night I said heck with it and took a night off, and Thursday night I plan to do some catching up as well before I lose my internet connection for a short time which is going to suck but it should be done sometime early next week.

Finally, you may have not noticed me commenting much lately either.  I’ve been able to comment here and their as I’m able to but I should let you know that my comments will be far and few between until things settle down after next week, and then after that things should pick back up.

I thought I would also show off another pic of my house as well.  Let me know what you think.  Are you as impressed as I am?


Now onto the Mentions of the week.

Article Flashback

As part of this weeks mentions I thought I’d change things up a bit and do something different.  A lot of times as bloggers we write articles that deserve the attention and may have faded away with the times, so I thought I would dig up an oldie but a goody that is really worth read.

This weeks article flashback actually come from another blog I have.  The website is called My Debt Relief Options and the article is titled 6 Tips To Paying Off Debt Faster.  In this article I cover several ways you can leverage your debts to pay them off faster and get more bang for your buck.  So check it out and let me know what you think.

Top 10 Articles Of The Week

This week I’ve come across some great articles and it was really hard for me to choose the 10 best, but I did it.  So check them out.

 Question Of The Week

Finally, this week on my Facebook page I asked, Do you have a savings plan in place?  My savings plan has been a crucial part in getting me were I am today.  It’s allowed me to take on other opportunities that I normally wouldn’t be able to partake in, live more comfortably, and even build a house.  So do you have a savings plan in place?  Share your thoughts below.

Have a great weekend everyone and thanks to everyone who has helped support Stumble Forward over the last week, I really appreciate it.

    Thanks Jose. I’m actually taking off work tomorrow to get a head start on the moving process and so I can be fully moved in by the end of Saturday.

  9. Christopher says:

    Thanks a lot Jim, I really appreciate it. The kitchen design was one of the major reason we when with that plan. In our old house we had some very limited counter space and in this house we will have lots of counter space plus the island as well which will be nice.

  10. Christopher says:

    Thanks Grayson. I’ll just be happy when everything is done and moved. Luckily I have a lot of family members that are willing to help me get the job done so I don’t have to do it all myself.

  11. Christopher says:

    Thanks Michelle. I really appreciate it.

  12. Christopher says:

    Hi CT, congrats on starting your own personal finance blog. That’s awesome you have a savings plan in place, not a lot of people can really say that now a days. Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it.

  13. Chris, the house looks great – congrats!!! I just love the white trim, in fact we are in the (S-L-O-W) process of painting all of the trim in our old Victorian house white. It just brightens up the place, doesn’t it? Good luck with all of your moving tasks!

  14. Christopher says:

    I agree the white trim really makes the rooms stand out. I’m glad I didn’t have to do the painting. The painter we had got the entire house painted in 3 or 4 days but not all at once.

  15. The kitchen looks fabulous. Great job.

    I have been falling behind on blogging stuff too. It happens. We all understand.

  16. Christopher says:

    Thanks Miss T. I probably won’t get much done next week either since my cable and internet won’t get hooked up until Thursday next week at this point.

  17. Yup, impressed alright. i like the kitchen a lot.

  18. Christopher says:
