Three Blog Carnivals, and You’re Out!

Things have been a little extra hectic at work, at home (major landscaping project—ugh!), and working on a blog re-design—but spirits are high! I hope yours are too. In the meantime, Can I Get Rich On A Salary participated in three personal-finance blog carnivals this past week.

[Editor’s Note: In case you are not familiar with blog carnivals, a blog carnival is a multi-blog event in which a number of bloggers aggregate their articles within a certain theme or subject area into one post. The “host” of the carnival writes up the post on his or her blog and includes links to the various articles. Hopefully, this helps readers as they get a “one stop shop” of articles. I post a weekly recap of the blog carnivals in which I have participated—and try also to cull out a few articles that I’d like to share with you here.]

Carnival of Personal Finance:

The Budgeting Babe hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance #161: The "Feeling Renewed" Edition on July 14. Here are some selected excerpts:
