Otters are strange creatures, and I never knew they could pay it forward. Maybe it depends on how many oysters you give them. This week, I have just two oysters to share.
First, the Carnival of Personal Finance #205 hosted by Wise Bread. In addition to my stabby post about handbags, I also recommend Fabulously Broke in the City’s warning to factor in the cost of accessories, for example, will you need a new wallet to go with the handbag?
Second, the Money Hacks Carnival #65 hosted by Stretchy Dollar. In addition to my post about vision insurance (mine just saved me about $350), I also recommend Ms. Smarty Pants’ analysis of whether Costco saves money. If you don’t have vision insurance, add vision care to your Costco comparison list.
