|The Carnival of Personal Finance #81 is hosted by Mighty Bargain Hunter.||There were many excellent posts, causing the selection of two Carnival picks. My first Carnival choice is Living without a budget by Living Almost Large. Like the author, I do not use a detailed budget, but still manage my money well every month. (The secret is paying oneself first.) My second Carnival pick is Money, Matter, and More Musings' Gasoline Prices: Why the third decimal place?. This touched off a huge discussion at Digg.com, with a number of historical, marketing, mathematical, and psychological explanations.|
|Festival of Frugality #55 is hosted at Binary Dollar.||This was also a Festival with lots of great posts. I have two Festival picks this week. My first Festival pick is Simple Tips for Purchase Negotiations via Getting Green, which teaches the art of getting a better price. My second Festival pick is Our 2007 Finances – Moving to a Single Income Family via Money Smart Life. Going to a single income family was a great move for us in 1999.|
The Carnival of Investing is hosted at Adventure Money.
|My Carnival choice is TJP presents 101 Ways to Invest money - Complete Series posted at Investor Trip. If you are stuck on how to invest your savings, check out this list for potential options.|
|The inaugural edition of the Carnival of Wheels is posted at The Garage||My Carnival pick is Hybrid Help Sought by Toyota Top Management by Don't Mess with Taxes, which discusses the reduction of tax credits for Toyota's hybrid on April 1, 2007.|
