Helping Canadians with Personal Finance Since 2006

The Carnival Of Personal Finance (#126)

Welcome to the 126th Carnival of Personal Finance.  For the readers who are not familiar with the CoPF, it's where personal finance bloggers submit their best articles of the week with one blog doing the hosting. 

Today, it just so happens that Million Dollar Journey gets the honor of hosting the ever growing event.  This week, there was an almost overwhelming number of submissions with 89 in total.  The entries are separated into categories with my top picks below.  

If you enjoy this weeks Carnival, please promote it on your own site. 

Editors Choice – MDJ's Top 10 Picks

1.  7 Business Lessons Learned from Watching Warren Buffet by Edith Yeung

  •  A video post along with commentary about how Warren Buffet goes about picking businesses to invest in.

2.  The 10 Most Important Things I have learned from Dividend Investing by The Dividend Guy

  • 10 great tips on how to succeed in Dividend based investing which is also one of my favorite stock picking strategies. 

3.  How to Play the Impending Water Shortages by Everyday Finance

  • With the potential world wide water shortage, this article indicates a water utility ETF that may be a good investment opportunity. 

4.  Where I Find What Stocks I Will Trade by Timothy Sykes

  • The controversial Timothy Sykes has submitted an article on the various mediums that he uses to find momentum stocks.  He talks about various websites and forums that he uses.  If you're interested, you can read my book review that I wrote on Tim's new book "An American Hedge Fund".

5.  6 Tips for a Debt Free Christmas by Christian Personal Finance 

  • I thought this article was a great primer in getting ready for the big shopping season. 

6.  My Teenagers First Job by Me My Kid and Life

  • This article is a insightful example of how to get your teenager/child involved with personal finance and money.  Get them to start a business based on their skills.  I think I will take the same approach with my future kid(s). 

7.  25 Ways I Save Money by Cash Money Life

  • Some solid ways to save money.  I agree with and pretty much follow all 25 money saving tips.  

8. Managing Finances in your Twenties by LifeEdit

  • A Canadian personal finance blog that I discovered through this Carnival.  From my last "age" poll, most of you readers are between the ages of 20-30, so this article may be helpful to you. 

9. Scrabble & Personal Finance: 8 Lessons from Tiles by Blueprint for Financial Prosperity

  •  The title says it all, very creative post.

10. The Tale of Two Friends by Vixen on a Budget

  • A story that I can really relate to.  Two friends same jobs, one is good with money, the other is not so good.  It really comes down to how your parents raised you.
