Carnivals / Festivals and a Cavalcade!

We have been featured on five carnivals/festivals this week. We are pleased to welcome all new readers, as well as new carnivals 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!

This week we especially welcome the Cavalcade of Risk, hosted by Blueprint for Financial Prosperity. Our inaugural offering was some advice to a friend about an investment proposal. Some other risky readings:

  • Dividend Money looks to alleviate some risk by bumping their life insurance. Is it enough?
  • 3Gen warns feels recent grads are at an increased risk of job burn-out. Are they?

Blunt Money is hosting the Father's Day edition of the Carnival of Debt Reduction and features our reminder that Ed McMahon is not coming. Some other good fatherly advice:
  • The Happy Rock talks about their personal finance tipping point, and their journey to financial freedom.
  • Jake at Debt Sucks fears he's reached the end of the road. Looks like he could use some fatherly advice. Jake: More income, less spending, buddy!
  • The Digerati Life offers some great advice on earning extra income via odd jobs.

The super-selective Green It! Carnival has selected our hot BPA tip for this week's edition over at the super-stylish Practical Nourishment. Here are a few other green articles for your viewing pleasure:

We are pleased to be included in the Third Anniversary edition of the Carnival of Personal Finance (hosted by Consumerism Commentary). Our opinion post about Dave Ramsey is featured. Some other notable entries:

The Carnival of Money Stories has posted at Money Ning. Our post about some advice to a friend fits right in with the 'time to listen to others' theme. Here is some other good advice from some other bloggers:

Out of Debt Again is hosting the 130th Festival of Frugality. While our little piggy went to the market (actually to the Habitat ReStore), here's what some other frugal little piggies did:
  • This little piggy (Squawkfox) saved $4200, and you might be surprised how.
  • This little piggy (My Daily Dollars) canned strawberry preserves. Hey, we did too!
  • This little piggy (Free From Broke) made summer treats for the kids. Yum, yum, yum!
  • This little piggy (Handyman Fix Home Repair) made his old appliances look brand new!
  • And this little piggy (Living the Frugal Life) went wee wee wee, all the way to the thrift store.

Thanks for reading and thanks to all the hosts. Don't forget to tell your friends and subscribe to get updates via email or RSS.
