Carnival of Money Stories #80

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Carnival of Money Stories! It is my great pleasure to host this event. The weather has finally cooled down in the desert; it’s chilly in the morning and I am looking forward to cozy nights in front of the fireplace with a hot mug of cocoa. Okay, actually I don’t have a fireplace, but let’s pretend.

From Stock.xchng, thanks Mikekorn for the use of this photo!Grab a mug of your favorite hot beverage and join me!

There were many submissions to the carnival this week, but many were not “money stories” or “money experiences” as specified by the carnival guidelines. Here are the submissions that made the cut.
