Carnivals To Kick Off the New Year

Here are the Carnivals that I will be reading this week:

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 GarageMy 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.

I hope you enjoy reading these Carnivals and finding tips you can use. Check back every Tuesday for the Ideas You Can Use segment.

I'm glad to hear that living with a single income is working well for your family!

It may be financially tight for us but it will be worth having mom at home with baby!

Money Smart Life,

While the income is lower, we feel that our quality of life is higher.

Good luck on your move.
