Carnival Delight

Gonna grab my laptop, gonna hold on tight, gonna get me some carnival delight. When you see these posts you know somethings right, they will keep you reading into the night.

This week I participated in 2 Carnivals! The first is the Carnival of Debt Management #30, hosted at Debt Consolidation Lowdown. I'm a little late on this one, as it was posted on Thanksgiving. My post on getting All Fired Up to pay off debt was included. My other favorites are:
  • The Wealthy Create Luck at Watson Inc. I take this one step further and believe that there is no such thing as luck, and that we each control our own futures.
  • Freezer Cookin' and Pantry Eatin' at Dandelions and Daydreams. I have a post about cooking from food you have in the works, and though my meal didn't turn out so well, it's a great challenge.
Moving on to the Festival of Frugality 102, which was posted at Cheap Healthy Good and featured a sweet little mix tape theme. Ah, mix tapes. Remember having to listen to the radio and try to push the play and record buttons at the exact same time without catching any of the DJ blabbing in the background nor missing the beginning of your favorite song? Good times. My post on Black Friday Shopping Karma was included, and here are my picks:

  • Reducing the Grocery Budget at Lightening. Great post, and always a personal goal of mine. This is the first post in a series, so be sure to check back.
  • Be organized be Frugal at Frugal Journey. I think everyone has an example of how being disorganized has cost them money. Here are some trouble spots to help prevent that.
  • Lazy Man just returned from his honeymoon and teaches us how to Save Money in Aruba. I'm not sure I believe all these tips... maybe I'll have to test them personally. ;)
That wraps it up! Thanks to the hosts, and be sure to check out the carnvals - tons ofpriceless information to be had.

You'd love Aruba. It's like St. Maarten without the traffic. Unfortunately it's also without the nudity ;-).

Hey! Thanks for the link. This week I cooked a huge ham that I bought on sale. I am actually looking for leftover ham recipes today.
