Editor’s Picks:

Other Great Posts About Reducing Debt:

To Pay Off Debt… Or Not posted at Debt Reduction Formula. My vote is you pay it off, DRF.

Sneaky Shopping Triggers posted at My Daily Dollars.

Using the tax refund towards debt payment posted at the Financial Wellness Project.

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?

10 Ways to Pay Your Debt Off Faster posted at Cash Money Life, saying, “tips for getting out of debt more quickly! :-)”

Survey: 3 in 10 U.S. workers have more credit card debt than retirement savings posted at Wow. That is a stunning pie chart. Makes me sad.

The Psychology of Getting Out of Debt posted at

Thinking Big While Starting Small posted at I’ve Paid For This Twice Already…

8 Summer Fun Activities That Won’t Break The Bank posted at The Smarter Wallet, saying, “Reduce debt by seeking enjoyment and fun the frugal way.”

Free Debt/Credit Documentary – In Debt We Trust posted at The Happy Rock. I’ve heard about this video in the past. Haven’t had time to watch it either.

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.

Do You Know Who Is Looking At Your Credit Score? posted at Ask Mr Credit Card.

Cheap Ways To Learn And Feed Your Brain posted at The Digerati Life.

That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Debt Reduction using the carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on the blog carnival index page.
