120th Carnival of Personal Finance

October 1st, 2007  |  Published in General  |  19 Comments

Wow… the Carnival of Personal Finance has hit its 120th edition and My Retirement Blog was tapped to celebrate its centennial and a fifth, having a carnival go this long is pretty amazing when you consider so many have come and gone. This one is a bit of a doozy, with a ton of submissions, so please take the time to go through and pick and choose what you read. I’ve briefly scanned most of them (not all I’m afraid), and pulled out a few favorites. The rest I put into general categories that I thought made sense, though I may have mis-categorized a few (sorry in advance!). Enjoy!

My Favorites

Credit & Debt

Frugality

Investing/Retirement

Taxes

General Personal Finance

    […] The Carnival Of Personal Finance #120 at MyRetirementBlog — My article on the dangers of keeping score with money is at this carnival. I thought all the host’s picks were very good, and additionally I really liked this article about “food-borne affluenza” because the hubby and I really love to eat. I think we can save a lot of money on food but the hubby says that I can’t limit his games AND limit his food because that would be way too extreme. We have been trying to cook more though. […]
