This is probably nothing to you experienced folks, but I’m very excited to be included in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance!
“The Money Drain is proud to host this weeks Carnival of Personal Finance. The theme for this week is “Wasted Money”, as this is a site about ways we waste money (and save money, of course ).
There were many great submissions for this weeks carnival, here are my Editor’s Picks:
Editor’s Pick #1: Jim from Bargaineering.com presents Netspend & Receiving Cards You Didn’t Apply For, and gives good advice on how to handle these types of offers, advice I had never even thought of before.
Editor’s Pick #2: Sean from Free Snatcher presents 5 Tips to Help You Become Debt Free, and gives sound advice and step-by-step instructions on how to get started on becoming debt free.
Editor’s Pick #3: SB from One Cent At A Time presents Live Like in Early 19th Century to Become Debt Free, and gives some frugal advice on how to save money during hard times. Some suggestions are a bit extreme for most, but when times are hard these are some sound potential ideas.”
Editor’s Pick #4: Sarah from Life [Comma] Etc presents Unemployment Tips, and gives some awesome advice on making the most out of being unemployed.
Editor’s Pick #5: Robert from The College Investor presents How You Can Use SWOT Analysis for Investments, and gives a really interesting viewpoint on using SWOT analysis as a strategic planning method for your financial future.

Editor’s Pick #9: Glen Craig from Free From Broke presents What Do Your Property Taxes Pay For?, and says, “Most of us believe our property taxes are too high. But property taxes play a vital role in your community. See what your property taxes pay for.” Some really good research done here, I certainly wasn’t aware of all the things my property taxes went for.”
