I participated in 2 carnivals this week.
Lynnae hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance #144-St. Patrick’s Day Edition and included my post “How to Spend Your Tax Refund or Economic Stimulus Rebate Wisely”. Great carnival with an Irish theme and Irish quotes throughout.
Paid Twice hosted the Festival of Frugality #117- From Theory to Practice and included my post “10 Ways to Save Money on Gas While Driving-Drive More Efficiently”. Great job with the festival as well.
Be sure to visit these carnivals to read all of the posts.
Other reading I enjoyed this week:
NCN at the No Credit Needed Blog had 5 Ways to Teach Young Children about Money, Counting, and Making Change. I have 2 small children (one celebrated his 4th birthday today!), so I will try some of these suggestions out on him.
Paidtwice has a though provoking take on the cash vs. plastic in her post How a Small Transaction before Plastic Seems Absurd? I also struggle with cash burning a hole in my pocket, but I also feel funny putting very small amounts on my debit card.
