Welcome to the March 8, 2010 edition of carnival of money stories 2. I've decided to go with the disaster theme based on the content of some of the posts submitted, most insignificantly but amusingly, Jim's (at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity) which revolves somewhat around the apparently impending zombie invasion.
Usually picking the editor's choice articles is challenging, but this week one article stood out so much (inspiring, refreshing, and well-written) that I have no choice but to give it the number one spot. I don't know where Baker found her, but I'm glad he did. You should take a look at her own blog/site while you're at it:
Baker presents a guest blog by Carmen 8 Effective Ways to Raise Frugal Kids posted at Man Vs. Debt, saying, "Follow these 8 simple, but effective tips to buck the consumerist trend and raise frugal kids!"
However, the prize for most humorous comments goes to.... jim at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity for his post Best Places to Hide Money At Home.
And I'd like to highlight CreditCardAssist's post on How to Donate to Relief Organizations simply because the world could use more good samaritans.
Ryan @ Cash Money Life presents How to Organize Small Business Finances posted at Cash Money Life, saying, "Tips on how to organize your small business finances, including how to separate your personal and business income, use business checking and savings, accounting software, and more. Essential reading for small business owners and freelancers!"
BWL presents 3 Mistakes to Avoid if You're Self-Employed posted at Christian Personal Finance, saying, "Whether you’ve decided to turn your blog into a business, sell a multi-level marketing product or rent a storefront to start selling your homemade jewelry there are some mistakes you will definitely want to avoid…"
Adam presents Don't Act your Age: How to Keep Saving and Keep your Friends posted at Magical Penny, saying, "Some people begin investing because they think they should, but they haven't fully worked out the right amount to invest. They could easily get discouraged by friends or by other needs if they haven't budgeted correctly. This article is full of points to help maintain your resolve; to not act like most other young people; to show respect to your pennies in the present for a better future tomorrow (and so you don’t have to rely on the lottery in your old-er age)."
Silicon Valley Blogger presents Best Ways To Invest Small Amounts of Money posted at The Digerati Life, saying, "Some of my personal stories and examples of how I've been able to make my money grow with only small outlays towards various investments."
me in millions presents Moneytalk Class #3: Planning for Future Life Events posted at me in millions, saying, "As a twenty something, I never really gave much thought to end of life issues. I just took a class and this is what I learned."
2 Cents presents Financial Literacy Is Like Green Eggs and Ham posted at Balance Junkie, saying, "This article looks at some good reasons to become more financially literate and encourages us, like Sam I Am, to try it!"
The Smarter Wallet presents The Truth About Bank Fees: What Your Bank May Be Hiding posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, "On banking matters."
For the ocularly challenged among us, Tom @ Canadian Finance Blog presents How I Got $8 Glasses posted at The Canadian Finance Blog, saying, "Alan lets us know how he was able to get new glasses for only $8!"
And just because I can:
