Carnival Recaps & March Madness Update
This week I participated in two carnivals and still have one post in the Personal Finance March Madness contest.
The Carnival of Personal Finance #92 was hosted at LazyManAndMoney this week. My article on million dollar kids – give me a break!
made the Honorable Mentions Category right below the Editors choice. As usual many good articles. Below are some of my favorites
- Consumerism Commentary’s The true cost of owning a home (I agree and have written a similar article)
- FIRE Finance’s – why market timing doesn’t work (day traders are fools. Might as well be buying scratch offs)
The Festival of Frugality #66 was hosted today at The Frugal Duchess. My now famous article on the Frugal cure for a sore throat is found at the very bottom (must have saved the best for last). Here are some articles that caught my eye.
- Stop the Ride!’s A Frugal Balance (frugality is a fine line and I think she has the right attitude. Frugality is all about spending your money on what is important to you)
- MoneySmartLife’s 10 Ways College Students can Save Money on Spring Break (Ahh spring break, the memories, but yeah if you are smart spring break can be dirt cheap and a blast)
Finally somehow through some stroke of luck, one my articles(The True Cost of Owning a Home) made it to the Elite 8 over at FreeMoneyFinance’s March Madness and looks like it is on it’s way to the Final Four.
