It’s Monday morning, and you know what that means. Time for the Carnival of Personal Finance and the Festival of Frugality! My post on credit reports is in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance. Check it out, it’s a Valentine’s Day edition!
I’m still going through the Carnival, and haven’t gotten a chance to look at the Festival yet, but here are some of my favorite posts so far:
- Struggling on a Six-Figure Income – I live in the Washington, D.C. area, and am well aware that six-figures here means something very different than six-figures in the midwest where I grew up. The discussion in the comments on this post is fascinating.
- What Women Wish Men Knew About Money – I absolutely agree with number 3. Day to day actions do speak so much louder than gifts!
- How the Federal Reserve works and why the interest rate on my savings account dropped – I was frustrated by the recent rate drops on my ING Direct account. This helps explain why it happened. Doesn’t ease my frustration though!
