Happy Friday everyone. I hope you all paid down some debts and saved some money this week. I also hope that the first week of December treated you well. I am still getting pulled in all directions at work, but it’s to be expected during the holiday season. I am also another week closer to the expected arrival of baby debt wrangler. Who knows when he will come, but my wife sure hopes it is soon! This week has flown by, but I have still kept quite busy behind the scenes here at Debt Roundup. This should also be a great week for a roundup as I have come across a few more blogs and am following more people. So, here we go and I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup!

Everyone seems to enjoy this list and it is only growing. I added a few more blogs this week and I have more on the list to add this weekend. I am a little behind on adding the screenshots of the newly added blogs, but I will catch those up this weekend. Here are the links to both the list and the blog randomizer.
