Carnivals / Festivals

This week we have been included on seven carnivals and festivals. We also hosted the Green It! carnival on Wednesday. Be sure to check it out if you haven't yet. We had fifteen excellent posts on the theme of Frugal Green.

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! On with the round up...

Our post on independence from those expensive disposable diapers was featured on the unofficial Organic Green Daddy Carnival. Below is the link to the only other blogger who also submitted to this non-carnival:

One of my favorite PF bloggers, Squawkfox, is hosting the good ol' Carnival of Personal Finance. This country gal was kind enough to include our post about my former reluctant self in her City Slicker Edition of the carnival. Here are some other tenderfoots trying to play cowboy:
  • Money and Such has a bone to pick with congress over this mortgage bail-out bill. They've found yet another way to punish people who actually did the right thing.
  • Saving Advice takes a look back at PF lessons learned from an Atari 2600.
  • Broke Grad Student explains why he never gives handouts to panhandlers. The ones in Chicago are hardcore!

Everydaytrash took a liking to our dumpster diving post and included it in TreeHugger's the Carnival of the Green this week. Here's some other posts he found in the trash (just kidding, guys):

The monthly roundup that is the Carnival of Everything Finance features one of our favorite posts about how credit cards are like fireworks. Here's one to add to the list: People use them when clearly they shouldn't! Some loser is still setting them off every so often a few blocks away. 4th of July was over a month ago, buddy!

Value For Your Life wanders around the world with the Carnival of Money Stories this week. Amanda catches up with us in London (not quite the High Street) where we make a confession about our wills. Here are some other tall tales she encountered from around the PF blogging world:

The Green It! Carnival was hosted right here! Our editor's picks from our Frugal Green Edition:

Frugal Homemaker Plus hosts the Festival of Frugality this week, featuring our post on dumpster diving etiquette. Here are some of our other favorites from this week:

Lisa at Greener Pastures reminds us that the dog days of summer are here with the Carnival of Money Hacks (as if the heat, humidity and mosquitoes weren't enough!). Like a tall, cool glass of lemonade, Lisa serves us our post about planning for the worst as well as these other refreshing posts:

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.
