Carnival of Money Stories

The 41st edition of the Carnival of Money Stories is now up.

Ferriswheel13jpg_2_2 I really like this carnival because it makes sure that all the items are indeed personal. And I'm pleased to report that my potential $7,000 e-payment error made it into this Carnival.

And below are three of my favorites postings that also are part of this edition of Money Stories.

When her bank's debit card error put I've Paid For This Twice Already… in a potentially embarrassing situation, she notes that "I never realized how much of my self worth was tied up in my ability to successfully swipe a piece of plastic." Read her whole tale in Self Worth and a Piece of Plastic.

The Personal Financier, in the quest to find the middle ground between over-spending and extreme frugality, recently decided to personally handle some home repairs. Check out why Doing It Yourself Doesn't Always Pay.

And I close with a vital question for us all from Cathy Stucker. At her self-named blog, she asks What Does Money Mean to You?

"If you are like a lot of other people, you may spend a lot of time thinking about money, talking about money and worrying about money," writes Cathy. "But have you ever considered why? What does money really mean to you?"

Be sure to check out these and all the other fine truly personal finance bloggings at the 41st Carnival of Money Stories.
