Today marks the launch of a brand new carnival – the Carnival of Financial Goals. Patrick at Cash Money Life started this carnival off with a iPod giveaway, which of course garnered many many posts about financial goals that ultimately became entries. I am very excited about this new carnival, and not just for the iPod, because I am in a goal-setting frame of mind lately and continually analyzing and reanalyzing our financial goals and seeing the different options we have. And that will lead to many goal-related posts in the future, I bet. My post No More Credit Card Debt was included, and I particulary enjoyed the alternative income goals (because I think a lot about the topic!) :
- Brip Blap: Earn $1000 Alternative Income per Month I hope he can do it! That would be very inspiring to me. And he has a great blog!
- Credit Withdrawal: Earn Alternative Income to Replace his Mortgage Payment What a great idea! My mortgage is going up, it is a moving target heh.
Of course, another week wouldn’t be complete without the other carnivals (and festival) I like to frequent. The Festival of Frugality made its way to Lazy Man and Money (who also authors the best sports blog ever, Lazy Man and Sports) and my post Update on Using That Turkey was included. I also enjoyed reading about someone in a similar cable/internet situation as we currently are:
- Mrs Micah: Its Cheaper For Me To Have Cable TV. It is cheaper for me too because of the package deal we have. But in a few months when the promotional package deal ends we’ll have to re-evaluate and see where our budget is at.
The Carnival of Money Stories is at first time carnival host, Loonies and Sense, and my post And Now The Spouse Gets Tested was included. This story really opened my eyes:
- Dividend Guy: The Metamorphosis From Mutual Fund Investor to Dividend Investor. I didn’t even exactly understand the difference before and now I have a whole lot to think about… later.
And finally, the Carnival of Family Life is at Imaginif and my post Raising Financially Responsible Children was included, as well as this post from my other blog, Hug Twice: No One Told Me This Stuff In Parenting School. I’ll have a review of all my other favorite posts from this carnival this weekend over at Hug Twice.
Thanks for including my posts in these awesome carnivals and if you haven’t checked them out, now s a great time to do so!
