Welcome to the Carnival of Money Stories, 88th Edition. A story can be a powerful learning tool, and stories about money are no exception. From the Wealthy Barber, to the parable of the talents, to the Merchant of Venice, powerful stories enable us to see our money habits in ways that dry, personal finance books never can.
And today we have a chance to hear money stories from other personal finance bloggers. These stories range from how some retired early, to whether to buy a new car, to whether some guy is going to get “jacked” on his way home because he cashed his paycheck. Enjoy!
Here are few of the money stories I particularly enjoyed:
