This week’s edition of the Carnival of Money Stories #87 – is at Funny About Money! Make sure you head over there and check out all of the great submissions!
Where was this lady when I needed advice about my son’s financial upbringing? Mike Piper of Oblivious Investor tells the story of his mom’s very special approach to teaching her son the basics of capitalism.
Free from Broke tells a gracious and beautiful story about his “best financial tool.” It’s pretty neat!
Mrs. Accountability takes the plunge, cutting off her (highly economical) waist-length tresses in favor of a cute new bob…and she worries about justifying the increased cost that results.
OMG! Maybe you have to need to have brought up your own brood to appreciate this, but this thing is freaking hilarious! Don’t miss the story of the parental shopping trip from He!! (or maybe heaven?) by Lindy at Minting Nickels.
Speaking of pretty funny, I’ll bet you didn’t think PF bloggers have a sense of humor, right? The Magic 8-Ball says “guess again.” Len Penzo compares what his not-so-crystal ball predicted about various PF bloggers deepest questions with what actually happened in 2010…and…well, the success rate is a bit unnerving.
Thanks to all of this week’s participants and especially our great host! Next week’s edition will be held at Money Crush. Make sure you head over to the submissions page to learn how to get your post in!
