It’s been a crazy week in terms of the financial markets. Everything seems unstable. This Carnival should help you reduce your debt load and provide added stability to your life.
Now how about some great articles?
- How Can they Possibly Afford That? Or Is Money in the Eye of the Beholder? posted at The Personal Financier, saying, “Do we all see the same color of blue?”
- An excellent post on the perception of wealth around us.
- If Youâ€™re Not Using It, Get Rid of It: Ten Ways to Declutter and Put Cash in Your Pocket posted at The Simple Dollar, saying, “Turn your excess stuff into extra debt repayments.”
- Trent really hits home with me with this one. I recently wrote about storing old magazines. I’m sure that’s only the beginning of my pile of ‘stuff’. Why not sell it and pay down debt with it?
Other Great Posts About Reducing Debt:
I’ll even throw an article into the mix… I submitted this last week, but was past the deadline. My Spendthrift Wants to Come Out and Play. One of the best ways to reduce debt is to avoid it in the first place. But sometimes, that isn’t so easy…
Tip # 318: Keep all your receipts for at least 3 months. posted at Budgets are Sexy., saying, “One of the easiest, and quickest ways to not get gypped down the road – save your receipts!” Again, love the blog name here. The only problem with keeping physical receipts, even in a secure location, is they fade over time. Why not scan them and keep them digitally?
Survey: 3 in 10 U.S. workers have more credit card debt than retirement savings posted at blogs.creditcards.com. Wow. That is a stunning pie chart. Makes me sad.
Girl Selling Her Virginity To Pay For College posted at Broke Grad Student. I was tempted to not post this due to its unsavory nature… but it is definitely a unique way to get out of debt (and into the adult entertainment industry…)
Ten Money-Saving Reasons to Get Out of Bed Early posted at Saving Advice, saying, “I save money and can be more productive merely by getting up before everyone else I know. You can feel better, save money and enjoy greater productivity, too, if you get up earlier.” Ooo… that’s a tough one for me. I get more done at night than in the morning. My ideal schedule for sleep is 11pm-7am. Unfortunately the real world won’t let me live like that just yet.
