This week’s edition of the Carnival of Money Stories #100 is up at Out of DebtAgain! Make sure you head over there and check out all of the great submissions.
- Philip from PT Money presents Anatomy of a Big Financial Mistake, “A funny story involving a drunk call with some pretty good personal finance takeaways.”
- Darwin presents People Aren’t This Stupid, Are They? posted at Darwin’s Money, saying, “You’ve gotta check out this ridiculous coupon deal from a major retailer. People aren’t this stupid are they? Please don’t ever fall for this gimmick.”
- Jessica presents Keeping Up with the Joneses: A Tale About a “House Poor” Life posted at MomVesting, saying, “They were one of the many families who had over-extended themselves and couldn’t afford anything besides their house payment. They were “house poor.”
- Beth from SmartFrugality presents When the Best Deal Isn’t posted at Smart Frugality, saying, “It is easy to get caught up in a great deal and buy more than we need or really even want. I look at the opportunity cost of the “great deal” for a rather minor purchase – and the results are surprising.”
This is the last edition of the carnival because there is little interest in hosting. Thank you to all the esteemed hosts who were kind enough to host the carnival in the past.
