This week we have three great carnivals to share, so I’ll dispense with all other talk.
First, the Carnival of Personal Finance #191, hosted by Dollar Frugal. My stabby rant about about retail sales growth was an editor’s pick. I also recommend Bret Frolich’s post about common sense being back in style. It’s about time.
Second, the Festival of Frugality #164 at Broke Grad Student. Once you follow my advice to buy a frugal Dutch oven, I recommend this post at Make It from Scratch for quick ideas for cutting food costs. She doesn’t say “Dutch oven,” but it’s implied.
Third, the Money Hacks Carnival #51 at Your Money Relationship. In addition to my post about homemade yogurt, I also recommend The Smarter Wallet’s suggestions for cheap meals you can cook at home.
