It’s my pleasure, today, to host the 14th Edition of the Best of Money Carnival.
This carnival, like its brothers, requires bloggers to submit their very best post for the week. However, instead of posting all the entries, it’s up to each host to pick only the best 10 selections. I like seeing what each hosts picks week-to-week based on his/her own interests. For example, you’ll find several articles about debt, simplicity, and career direction… all topics I love reading about.
Each submission also has to include a summary of the post. Therefore, the text you see under each link is provided by the author, themselves. There were over 120 submissions this week that I’ve whittled down.
Starting with the best at the top, here are my favorite 10 posts of the week:
