Hey there—how’s packing going for your upcoming move to London, Weekend Warriors? At this point, I see we’ve accrued twenty-five Weekend Warrior Saturday posts giving you advice on how to put your weekend to constructive use and start preparing for your London move.

What often concerns me with writing a blog post every day is that really good advice proceeds to get buried deeper and deeper into the archives. Though we offer our blog categories in the right margin of this site to help you sort through (as well as a “search” box in which you can enter key terms you’re looking for), I thought today I’d provide a Table of Contents to date for just this category…just in case you happen to be checking it out this weekend for the first time and don’t realize how much you’ve missed so far and can easily catch up on!
