Carnival of Money Stories 2

by Evan

I like hosting in Carnivals because it forces me to read a ton of usually great posts from authors and bloggers that I don’t usually check out.  Carnival of Money Stories has a great objective,

A weekly blog carnival where individuals share their stories/experiences with money

So all those great authors and bloggers who submitted posts that have nothing to do with the Carnival’s goals I am sorry for not highlighting your post.  To all those that attempted to gain some link juice by submitting terrible articles that have nothing to do with the subject, then I am not sorry.

There were approximately 50 submissions and I edited them down to ones below so you know they are great!
