Carnival Roundup – Bringing in the New Year

January 5, 2007

It’s been a fun week, lots of good stuff to read to get us started off right in 2007. Most of the articles I contributed to Carnivals had a connection to the new year.

I talked about the benefits of rebalancing your portfolio at the Carnival of Investing. The end of the year or start of a new one is always a good time to take stock of your investments and make any needed changes.

I talked about how we’ll be turning into a single income family in 2007 at the Festival of Frugality. We’ll have to make some financial changes but it’s worth it have my wife home with our new baby.

I’ve had a good year selling on eBay and am looking to improve in 2007. I share some personal finance tips I’ve learned as an eBay Powerseller in Turning Trash into Cash at the Carnival of Personal Finance.

If you’re just now reading my post on Employer Matching Gifts then you missed the boat for 2006 but make sure you take note in 2007. This article was featured in the first edition of the Carnival of Ethics, Values & Personal Finance over at Money and Values.

Thanks to Steve at Adventure Money, Henry at Binary Dollar, John at Mighty Bargain Hunter, and Penny Nickel at Money & Values for hosting the carnivals!
