Take 5: A Roundup of Reads From Around the Web

1. Frugal decor: fabric wall panels

[Cheap Healthy Good] I don’t know much about home decorating, but I know a good deal when I see one. The idea of filling a blank wall with beautiful fabrics is both clever and cost-effective.

2. Drop the guilt: how to splurge without breaking the bank

[Len Penzo] When you get really good at saving money, it can be difficult to splurge – even when it’s called for. Penzo helps you get over the guilt of spending money to have some fun.

3. Your mission this week: Wear all of the clothes you still haven’t worn yet (or sell them)

[Budgets Are Sexy] Here’s a hilarious post with a fashionable idea to save money: Make sure you wear all your clothes equally – because we all have a bunch of clothes we never take out of the closet or drawer.

4. 13 things you didn’t know about composting

[Bargain Babe] I don’t know anything about composting, so all 13 things were new to me. And they were compelling enough that I’d start composting – if I had a backyard. (Almost my entire back yard is paved.)

5. Be a good carpool passenger
