Carnival of Money Stories #14

Welcome to the 14th edition of Carnival of Money Stories! For this edition of the carnival there were 25 submissions; however, the majority of them were not in line with this carnival’s theme. Please remember that this carnival is for posts that have personal stories about your finances. While I enjoyed reading several articles with “how to” advice or general information about personal finance, I did not include them because they lacked a personal story. Other blog carnivals exist for such submissions. With that out of the way, on to the submissions!

Editor’s Choice
