We have been featured on four carnivals/festivals this week. We are pleased to welcome all new readers to Not the Jet Set. To find out more about us, click here. We are a personal finance blog focused on frugality, stewardship, and current events, while also telling our story as a family and the personal finance decisions we have made. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out our new NtJS Cafepress shop!

The Carnival of Money Hacks has posted over at Moolanomy with Mrs. NtJS's garage sale hacks. Pinyo is also launching a new and interesting project called PF Buzz, so be sure to check that out. Some other hacks that caught our eyes:

The 126th Festival of Frugality is up at The Financial Blogger as the 'If I Had A Car' edition. If I had known, I'd have submitted a different article. Oh, well, you'll just have to enjoy our guide to garage sale shopping like a pro.
The 153rd Carnival of Personal Finance is up at Money and Values in a question and answer format. It helps to put the articles in perspective, but I'm really looking forward to a Jeopardy/answer-and-question format. A: Selling your car outright. Q: How do you get top dollar for your used car?
The Carnival of Money Stories, hosted by College of Cash, features Mrs. NtJS's garage sale adventures using only the money we had left over at the end of the month. Some other great stories:
  • Financial Zip shares a story about finding $100 in someones budget. What a great discovery! Some additional tips for the rest of us as well.
  • Funny About Money tells a tale of lies and deception, errr or at least a salesman and handyman who didn't know that you can in fact successfully drill plastic and tread a screw into it. How do they think all these plastic products are held together!?
