Carnival Retrospective

So I’m not following my own rules and am still in my pjs as I write this at 1:30pm. *sigh* My excuse is that I’m working on a new blog theme and got really involved. Then Micah and I got an e-mail about something we’re writing, so we’re making changes.

Anyway, it’s been a good week for carnivals and festivals. Here’s a link to the ones I participated in along with a few of my favorites.

First up was the mother of all carnivals–the Carnival of Personal Finance at Cash Money Life. Patrick was very creative (especially since he had another carnival brewing)! I included my post about gold being little more than shiny.

Some of my other favorites from the carnival were:

We’ll be back to Cash Money Life, but now it’s time for the best of the Festival of Frugality over at Lazy Man and Money. This week’s festival included my post on how having cable tv is actually saving us money because of our weird package. Some highlights:

Make it From Scratch (at Stop the Ride! this week) is a yummy, crafty and always potentially frugal carnival. Care for my comparatively frugal Masala Rice recipe?

And there be a new carnival out there–the fledgling Carnival of Financial Goals back at Cash Money Life (busy week for Patrick!). I didn’t win the introductory iPod (recount!!!! or rerandomize) but I’m going to try to be earning $2500/month before the end of 2008. Maybe I’ll be able to afford one. If it’s refurbished by Apple and thus cheaper.

All the entries are so inspiring that I’m having a hard time choosing. Go read them all, but here’s a couple to inspire you:

Go forth and have yourself a merry weekend. It’s now 2+ hours later and I’m showered and dressed.

Funny, I’ve never thought of myself as hard core, but I suppose I could be! I appreciate the linkage.
