Birthday Bash of Personal Finance
As I am sure you are well aware, these finance blog carnivals include numerous quality posts that can provide you with very valuable information or advice on a variety of financial topics. This carnival certainly meets that requirement with a long list of quality posts on many different aspects of debt and money management.
Thanks to Stock Market Beat for hosting a quality carnival and presenting everything in a fun manner. Be sure to take some time to review the list of posts this week as there are some real gems.
Here are a few of my favorite posts from this latest carnival:
Mind Your Pennies.
The Frugal Duchess discusses pennies and finance and provides three reasons why pennies matter. As someone that faithfully believes that if you mind your pennies the dollars will follow, I enjoyed this post.
My Financial Awareness has a nice post about when there isn’t enough money to get what you want. When I graduated college, I used to resort to option one but eventually learned that option three was where I needed to be. Very nice post!
Use Your Money.
Extreme Perspective has some very interesting thoughts on using your money. It is nice to look at money from a different perspective and this post stimulated some alternative ideas for me.
As a big believer in the use of a debt snowball, Blunt Money’s post on a savings snowball was right on for me. When we eliminated our consumer debt, we began to use our debt snowball as our savings snowball. It is amazing how quickly your money can accumulate when you are not shooting yourself in the foot with consumer debt.
Think Outside the Box.
The Coin Jar presents how a woman’s good financial sense lead to a windfall. This post demonstrates that sometimes making a difficult decision can lead to substantial financial gain. While not everyone will reap similar windfalls, it certainly provides some food for thought the next time you face a financial decision.
Enjoy this carnival and as always, be sure to come back and share with me which posts you enjoyed the most!
