47th Carnival of Personal Finance

The Carnival has returned after a twenty six week whirlwind tour (that’s six and a half months) of the personal finance blogosphere and has finally made it back to Blueprint. This week I have a little surprise that I think you’ll enjoy, adding a little fun to the usual presentation of a Carnival.

If you are brave enough, here is a map of the 47th Carnival of Personal Finance. Each entry has been listed on a Renaissance faire-esque “map” and if you hover your mouse of a particular submitter, it should give you a brief message about what the article is about. (FYI, there is no significance to the articles with the white backgrounds, the original map simply had those backgrounds there already so I re-used them)

The usual listing of articles is visible after the jump. I hope you’ve enjoyed the Carnival this week and thank you to all that contributed.

Josh Cohen at Multiple Mentality presents Gas vs Water and is curious why no one has expressed outrage over the rising price of bottled water.

Kay Bell of Don’t Mess With Taxes writes “Making your gas money go farther.” It looks like $3 a gallon gas will be around for a while. So it also looks like it’s up to drivers to do what they can to make the pump price bite a little less severe.

Cathy from The Family CEO writes to about a Upromise Cashout opportunity.

Amanda at Young and Broke presents Ease up, already!, her thoughts on the recent runup in gas prices and the response of the pf blogosphere.

The folks at Firevalt mention briefly the importance of diligence when it comes to frugality.

directionzero at presents The Debt Wall Of Shame – How Much Do You Owe?

I wholeheartedly agree, great article.

    FANTASTIC Carnival! But Tsk tsk for not having a will! There are boilerplate wills you can buy and fill in from places like Nolo Press. It’s not enough to name your spouse and children as beneficiaries on an insurance policy. There’s a lot of other stuff to consider. (cute egg photo, btw)
