Apologies for the belated recap. I was busy painting my house this weekend and forgot to recap!
First, the Carnival of Personal Finance #215 hosted by Good Financial Cents. In addition to my post recounting my long and winding road to homeownership, I also recommend M is for Money’s tips on the unexpected cost of home repairs. Boy do I hear that!
Second, the Festival of Frugality #188 hosted by Financial Highway. In addition to my post about the best and worst places to stash money, I also recommend a different perspective from Master Your Card. Are banks safe? I say they’re safer than the mattress.
