Carnival of Personal Finance #86
As is becoming somewhat regular, I’ve participated again in the Carnival of Personal Finance. This week, it’s being hosted by The Simple Dollar. The nice thing is that he’s actually read all of our submissions. It’s an incredible feat given the shear number submitted each week.
Here’s some highlights:
- My own submission WAAYYYY down near the bottom under the Other/Misc category. Not sure why since similar articles are near the top. Anyway, I submitted my recent post about “When Youâ€™re Old Enough To Refuse Cash Gifts From Family”
- Money Smart Life provides some key ratios to help you figure out your financial health
- The Frugal Duchess compares teaching to finances. Being a volunteer teacher myself, I can really relate to her comments about lesson plans and the kids seeing through you.
- Five Cent Nickel has some great homeowner tips for saving money on utilities. These aren’t new, but I appreciate his efforts at getting the word out. I admit I need to do some of these items myself too.
- Mr Credit Card teaches his kid about money. I like his ideas, and I have some of my own for future posts already lined up.
- Debt Free has an excellent article on why Americans are in debt. I agree wholeheartedly with what I read, and think we all need to just think about what we’re buying and how we’re managing our finances.
- Queercents has a long but well-written about one of my favorite topics: Clutter. I haven’t written about clutter yet because it’s about the only topic that gets me so fired up I can’t even speak. Ask my wife.
Enjoy the articles!
