Carnival of Personal Finance #7

The seventh edition is available [3] at In Cash Flow We Trust (great name!). Here are the ones I think you really shouldn’t miss:

Moneywise (The Real Returns) has a good brief article doing the math on how you’re losing money when you invest in some treasuries [4] when you take into account taxes and inflation. This sort of thinking is critical in investing because people typically don’t take into account inflation when they make decisions.

While Maryland isn’t on the list, Nickel has a comprehensive list of the upcoming tax-holidays [5] including what is exempt. It’s the most explanatory one I’ve seen out there.

In a throwback to my psychology classes, Dawn talks about store layouts [6] (According to Real Simple Magazine) and it’s a definite read for those of you pocket psychologists.
