Carnival of Money Stories Edition 84

Posted by Andy on November 12, 2008

Welcome to the Carnival of Money Stories Edition #84.

I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. Today was particularly a busy day for me at work so I’m a little late on posting the carnival so I apologize.  So there were a total of 46 article submissions this week and only 13 articles made it to this edition. Thats a little under 30% acceptance rate. I guess you can say I’m a little bit more selective than most hosts but all the articles listed here are good stories or experiences.

Enjoy.

The Financial Bloggers are going for it.

Living Almost Large and cutting the price of goods.

Learn the Stock Markte makes sense of social security.

That about concludes this edition. The next edition will be hosted by Ask Mr Credit Card on November 18th. Make sure to get your articles in by 5PM Eastern time on Monday to be considered for the next edition.
