Well, it is summer, so I suppose it’s apple pie season (which is odd, really, because apples are a winter fruit and yet we think of apple pies and the 4th of July together.) Anyway, I digress. So let’s get straight to it.
First, the Carnival of Personal Finance #204 hosted by Earn What You Spend. In addition to my post about determining house affordability, I also recommend My Dollar Plan’s auction experience. If you plan to buy at auction, read this first.
Second, the Festival of Frugality #177 hosted by Savings Not Shoes. In addition to my post about staying cool this summer, I also recommend the note from the husband at the Bargain Jargon. Not related, just hilarious.
