I am honored to be hosting the 74th Money Hacks Carnival this week. I have hosted quite a few carnivals now and I continue to be impressed by the shear number of articles that are out there that I missed out on during the week. I chose another quirky theme for this weeks carnival, Saturday Morning Cartoons. I can’t remember if any of these cartoons actually aired on Saturday morning, most likely they didn’t but either way here are a few of my Editors picks followed by the rest of the carnival with my cartoon facts scattered throughout.
Jason R Fisher presents Teaching Kids about Money I posted at Improve The Quality. I am a huge fan on ensuring our young our educated about money and understand the implications of debt. That is why I couldn’t resist this as an editors pick.
Heather Levin presents How To Make Your Own Vermicompost Bin posted at The Greenest Dollar. I found this post quite Ironic as I was just having a discussion with Matt from Debt Free Adventure about vermicomposting. I still don’t think my wife would approve of worms in the house though.
The Happy Rock presents Just Buy It Already! Fighting Indecision On Big Purchases posted at The Happy Rock. The Weakonomist snuck into my editors pick via this killer guest post on The Happy Rock. A great look at how sometime it is best to just bite the bullet and make that purchase.
Wojciech Kulicki presents Saving More vs. Insuring More posted at Fiscal Fizzle. This post made me think about my own musings in “Why Self Insurance is Crap“. Good points here for both sides though, each has its place.
