On with the round up...

Rich Life Carnival: Installment #9 is up at Your Finish Rich Plan. As they get back to basics, so do we with our extravagantly frugal post on cutting the cable. Here is another post that I enjoyed:

Carnival of Personal Finance: Can be found at The Personal Financier, in the Famous Last Sentences edition. Maybe we can add, "All those Dave Ramsey listeners are bad at math." to the list. Some other notable articles:

Festival of Frugality: Living Almost large has the festival ready for it's close-up with the Celebrity edition. Our Friends in High Places post falls under the Jay Leno - Savings/Coupon heading. After getting over the initial disappointment (fervently a Letterman fan), I learn that Jay is incredibly frugal for a celeb. We'll take it! Some other tabloid worthy posts:
  • Single Guy Money kills two birds with one stone with a garage sale.
  • Jim at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity shares a great way to get rid of ants. We do this too, and it works great!

Carnival of Money Stories: Is hosted by My Daily Dollars and adorned in American 'Classics'. Included as an Editor's Pick is our post on something dumb I did with money - who knew? Here is another great story:

Carnival of Debt Reduction: The Mighty Bargain Hunter hosts this week with 'no fancy themes'. Just a focus on reducing debt. Amen to that. Reducing debt typically means changing behaviors and reducing spending. Brown baggin' it vs. eating out is a great place to start. Also give these guys a look:

Carnival of Financial Learning: Financial Learn brings us the carnival this week with the Hurricane Ike edition. Horrible what happened there. Eager to see what is left of Galveston Island - afraid our favorite sea food restaurant may be one of those piles of rubble they keep showing. Check out our post on eating out, as well as these other financial lessons:

Make It From Scratch! Carnival: Funny about Money takes on hosting duties this week and has our ReUse It! Rice Packs post as an Editor's Pick! Definitely a series to keep up with.

Carnival of Money Hacks: Fall is in the air and On a Quest to be Debt Free.... is hosting the Money Hackers this week. Included is our post about eating lunch: in or out. Don't miss this one either:

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.
