Break out the silver, the Carnival of Debt Reduction celebrates it’s twenty fifth edition this week and I’m proud to present fourteen fabulous articles for your viewing pleasure. Remember folks, if you’re a contributor, try to keep your submissions relevant to debt management & reduction- there were a couple submissions this week that didn’t look like they fit but I put them in because I’m not a snob and it’s really not a big deal anyway.
Without further ado… the Carnival begins!
