Another slow week for the carnivals for me. I’ve just been too busy to submit. Ah, well…
Other readworthy articles:
- Starving Artist from Indebted 2 You presents Phone Calls Saved Me $185. So many people pay unnecessarily. I love hearing these types of stories. We can all learn from what Starving Artist did wrong and from what Starving Artist did right.
- Chief Family Officer‘s Creative strategies for coping with rising costs – Part Four: Unusual Ideas For Saving Money Without Reducing Your Standard Of Living. To me the most valuable part of this article is that it tells us to think outside the box of what we normally do.
I also participated in the Carnival of Money Stories. The Financial Blogger‘s Dad included my article Red Flags and FedEx and Are You Sure That Check’s Not Going to Bounce? in a really fun take on carnivals.
- The situation PaidTwice described in A Tale of Two Doctors really irked me. I’m glad she’s following up with her insurer to get her money back.
- I had to laugh at Going bald is a blessing in disguise by Pinchingcopper. We’ve saved a fortune in haircuts since Husband stopped trying to pretend he had more hair. His new, close cropped do is sexy, and since we use our own clippers they’re quite the frugal coup!
That’s it for this week. Next week I entered one article in a bunch of Carnivals because I was really trying to get the word out on plastic. That should be a fun linklet.
