I'm still going through the Carnival, and haven't gotten a chance to look at the Festival yet, but here are some of my favorite posts so far:
- Struggling on a Six-Figure Income - I live in the Washington, D.C. area, and am well aware that six-figures here means something very different than six-figures in the midwest where I grew up. The discussion in the comments on this post is fascinating.
- What Women Wish Men Knew About Money - I absolutely agree with number 3. Day to day actions do speak so much louder than gifts!
- How the Federal Reserve works and why the interest rate on my savings account dropped - I was frustrated by the recent rate drops on my ING Direct account. This helps explain why it happened. Doesn't ease my frustration though!
