Carnival of Money Stories #92: Super Bowl Edition

Welcome to the Carnival of Money Stories. This is my favorite carnival, because what’s more interesting than reading well-written stories about money and finances? There were a lot of submissions, but in the name of keep the carnival great, I had to exclude some posts that even though they were interesting, they weren’t the stories we were looking for.

Since the Steelers and Packers faced off in the Super Bowl last night, I think it’s only appropriate to split up the posts into football related categories. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for having me as an Editor’s Pick! Glad to see my mistake can be shared with your readers. It cost me a few thousand and it was a terribly expensive lesson to learn. Thanks again!
