We’re on vacation in North Carolina and having a super-dee-duper time. Enjoy this week’s roundup!
The Carnival of Personal Finance #158 : Vampire Slaying Edition was hosted at Mrs. Micah, who chosed my post My Personal Finance Confession Project: Credit Card Rates as an Editor’s pick! Thanks Mrs. Micah!.
Also check out:
- Passive Family Income posted Is it Frugal or Stealing? at Passive Family Income. A great, thought-provoking look at different people’s sense of right and wrong.
- Rock at Happy Rock‘s post The Vending Machine 2 for 1 – Is It Frugality or Stealing is along the same lines. I found the comments very revealing!
My article Your Economic Stimulus Check Didn’t Include Money For Your Kids? You’re Getting Another Check! was in the Carnival of Money Stories hosted at The Dividend Guy Blog .
Other good reads:
- Mrs. Accountability at Out of Debt Again wrote about My Mom’s $6480 Washing Machine. b The numbers for rentals like these are staggering! Oy.
- Frugal Babe has a great article about thrift store shopping in her article 99 Cent Mondays posted at Frugal Babe. I really wish there were Savers stores in my state!
