112th Carnival of Personal Finance: Best Week Ever!
by Jason Dean
The Frugal Law Student has posted the 112th Carnival of Personal Finance, and it is a riot. Mimicking the popular VH1 show, The Best Week Ever, Brett McKay has assembled an awesome collection of personal-finance articles along with hilarious, show-inspired commentary, like:
Spent all week chastising yourself for paying $1.50 for bottled tap water? (Thatâ€™s right. Weâ€™re talking about you Aquafina drinkers.) Hereâ€™s what you missed money burners and earth polluters. One of these bloggers is having the best week ever!
- The Amateurist Financial Journey has an incredibly thorough article detailing the various aspects of mutual funds, index funds, the differences between the two, etc.
- The Brits have a lot to say about finance, but often times us Yanks don’t understand what they’re saying. Have no fear, chap — just read Plonkeeâ€™s British money slang dictionary.
- How Frugal Should You Be When Hosting Guests is another fun and practical one from Family Finance Blog.
- And One Frugal Girl questions whether or not being in debt is an integrity problem; very thought provoking.
But my favorite article was from the Millionaire Mommy Next Door. Her story is really inspiring and demonstrates the true value of financial independence:
A bona fide self-made millionaire mommy shares her recipe for success, happiness, and wealth.
In How I Became a Millionaire While Working In My Pajamas she explains how she got where she is today and shows that you can do it too!
But wait — who had the Best Week Ever?
These posts were all great submissions. But one blog topped them all by presenting an awesomely creative photo personal finance confessions essay. Thatâ€™s why Saving Advice is having the best week ever! Itâ€™s like Post Secret for personal finance bloggers!
