Carnival of Money Stories :: 16th Edition
|July 2, 2007||Posted by derek under Carnivals|
Welcome to the 16th Edition of the Carnival of Money Stories. For those new to this carnival, you can expect to see posts that have a personal story or experience related to saving, investing, finance, money management, money generating, business ventures, success and tales of struggle.
There were 34 submissions for the Carnival this week, however only 17 of the articles satisfied the criteria set forth for the Carnival of Money Stories. There were quite a few quality posts providing tips and advice on personal finance but unfortunately they did not have a personal story or experience as part of the post. Hopefully those authors submitted their stories to other carnivals as well.
With all of that completed, I am happy to present you with the Carnival of Money Stories 16th Edition:
- MoneyNing shares a story about getting four tires for free but that sometimes the perfect money saving deal can go bad and cost you more in the end.
- Over at Cheap as Chips there is a nice discussion about how it is possible to get baby products cheaper outside the big city even though there is less competition from other stores.
- Have you ever thought about investing in real estate? Head on over to Adventures in Money Making to get the inside scoop on whether or not it is a good time to invest in real estate and why now is a good time to learn as much as possible.
- If you have ever had any questions about the 7 conditions of default under the Citibank credit card agreement, be sure to pay a visit to The Skilled Investor. Reading through this saga gives you the feeling that it is too hard to believe, but nobody could make this up unfortunately.
- Personal Finance Blog Articles provides us with a story about how John needs to create a top strategy for saving money.
- Over at HotStrategies.com you will find a personal experience on how change in business occurs and how sometimes you need to know when the time is right to sell your business.
- Marc and Angel share their story about how there are times when it makes financial sense to buy a car with a credit card. We did this with our son’s off-road motorcycle and it worked well for us as well.
- Do you have a whole-house fan in your house? We don’t but after FreeMoneyFinance shared his thoughts on how to save money with a whole-house fan, I will be doing a little research to determine the cost to add one to our home.
- My Wealth Builder shares a touching story about their daughter has developed a midas touch as she has recently won free airline tickets and $100 cash. I think I would be giving her the Business section of the paper to see if she can select a few winning stocks!
- Given that many people now run their own blog, you’ll want to check out The Blog Consultant to see how he has started with affiliate marketing to try and make some money.
- The Dividend Guy Blog shares a post on the power of reinvesting dividends with a listing of recent dividend transactions in his own account.
- Following the earlier idea of using your blog to make money, be sure to check out The Dough Roller’s list of 30 things he learned in his first 30 days of blogging. As we all try to build our own blogs and/or business, there are some valuable lessons to be learned here.
- Queercents does not disappoint with 10 money questions for Dan Butler and Richard Waterhouse. I loved the story about the time that Dan invited Richard to a movie!
- Money and Such tells us about how many young people at their employer do not currently save for retirement and then shares five strategies for planning your retirement while still in your 20’s. It is scary to see how many people of all ages have not planned properly for their retirement so these strategies are important for everyone.
- Check in on the progress that Stop Swimming has made on the challenge to double the emergency fund. It’s amazing what you can do when you challenge yourself to do something!
- Andy at Money Walks shares some exciting news that his fiance has been crowned Miss Maryland and saved money in the process. Congratulations!
- Right here at My New Choice, I shared my thoughts on how sometimes you really need to take a step back and look at the big picture to appreciate how far you have come with your finances.
Thank you to everyone for their participation in the carnival. It was a pleasure reading through all of your posts and taking part in your experiences. As a reminder, be sure to submit your post for the next edition of the carnival as soon as possible.
