From an informative comparison of college savings plans to a how-to-quit your job guide, The Carnival of Personal Finance No. 91 is a great read. The Sun’s Financial Diary runs an excellent show. The line-up is well organized with very thoughtful commentary from the host, who must have spent hours reading, digesting and sifting through the submissions.
Here are a few of the posts that caught my eye:
I enjoyed Coverdell IRA vs. 529 plan for College Savings from Financial Zero to Hero Husband and Dad. This post provided a very thoughtful summary and comparison of two popular savings plans.
Here's another must-read: A Job Quitter’s Primer: 25 Reasons To Leave Your Job from Silicon Valley Blogger at The Digerati Life. This is an excellent article for those considering a job move.
It's a keeper.
When Your Car is a Gold Digger: Budgeting for Auto Maintenance from Money Under 30 is also a very helpful piece. I especially liked the tip about creating a self-insurance plan for repairs.
I'm glad to be in the line-up. Thanks to the host for taking the time to read over 75 entries and to organize such a wonderful carnival.
