Good good links #171

Happy first of Advent!

Apparently, the day after Thanksgiving marks the start of the Christmas season for all of you in the US so: have you decorated your house/apartment yet? Baked any cookies? Tell me!

I’ll pretend the fact it already is the 1st of Advent didn’t catch me by surprise in the slightest.* Sunday as is didn’t sneak up on me, though, so I come prepared with great posts I want to share with you.  So if you have a minute to space:  enjoy the reads and

Happy Sunday!

    This is a great collection, Miss Polkadot! I really like the several posts you have about various concerns about materialism–how to not overspend, giving non-thing things, and the one about the KonMari method–since this tends to be a pretty materialistic time of year. Also–such delicious looking recipes. That butternut squash sweet potato casserole!
