The Carnival of Personal Finance was hosted this week by Money, Matter and More Musings. MMM did a great job with the carnival, which is well organized and includes some interesting factoids about U.S. currency. It’s a must read. MMM included my article, Nifty Tricks with the Rule of 72, 71, 70, 69.3, 114, 144 and My Favorites, 1.5 and 1,080,000. Here are some other articles from the carnival that I really enjoyed:
- How to Save Money by Increasing Your Expenses @ Gather Little By Little: GLBL provides a nice step-by-step process to get control of your spending through a simple, easy to follow budget.
- Why I Want to Retire Early, Change Roles and Live On One Income @ The Digerati Life: I have a confession to make–I’ve become a real fan of this blog. This post is an honest look at trying to cut back from the corporate life. I did just that five years ago. It cost me 1/3 of my salary, and I’ve never looked back! (Ok, maybe I looked back once or twice, but I didn’t turn into a pillar of salt.)
- 7 Unwritten & Often Forgotten Credit Card Secrets @ Blueprint for Financial Prosperity: I’m not a fan of credit cards, but I must admit, this article taught me a few things about the plastic I didn’t know.
- Analyze Mutual Fund Costs with FINRA’s Mutual Fund Expense Analyzer @ The Sun’s Financial Diary: This looks like a great tool to analyze a mutual fund’s expenses.
