I almost forgot to link back to the 189th Carnival of Personal Finance. Last week Emily Starbuck Gerson hosted the carnival with a super bowl theme over at Taking Charge. My article, Valuable Lessons From Recent Layoffs, was included.
This week Money Ning hosted the 179th Carnival of Personal Finance and featured my article Why I Save as an Editor’s Choice. I’m honored to be one of the chosen three in a carnival that includes over 100 articles. Thanks David for the kudos.
My favorite articles from this week’s carnival are:
- Top 10 Reasons we are Not Frugal (Although I cut back on a lot of expenses I too love a long hot shower, pay out the wazoo for iPhone coverage and keep an HDTV plan although I almost never turn on the television.)
- Improve Your “Bottom Line” by Exercising (Trees Full of Money connects the dots between exercise and your wallet.)
- Never Mind A New Economic Stimulus Package – Save Yourself (Free From Broke provides a no-nonsense list to get a handle on your finances.)
I also want to send a shout out to all of my wonderful readers who left comments on Saturday’s call for recipes. I’ve been swamped with work and unable to find significant time to experiment, but my list of favorites is growing by the minute and I seem to spend every spare moment searching food sites. Thank you all so much for your recommendations!
The 150th Carnival of Personal Finance is up over at Lazy Man and Money. I submitted Saving Pennies… Wasting Dollars, a post about how I unknowingly paid $60 in fees for a cell phone subscription service I never signed up for. The moral of the story: read all of your bills carefully, especially online versions of your bills.
My favorite article was 20 Ways to Earn More and Spend Less: Steps to Becoming a Frugal Capitalist by Digerati Life. I enjoyed this article so much I mentioned it in a post a few weeks back.
