Check out the latest Carnival of Personal Finance

If you're looking for a quick way to get more personal finance tips and helps, take a trip to the carnival.

The blog Free Money Finance is the host of Carnival of Personal Finance #66, elevated earlier this week. If you've never heard of a blog carnival, it's essentially a list of recent postings from a variety of blogs on a specific topic (in this case Personal Finance, but blogs host carnivals on many other topics). The blogger hosting the Carnival vets submissions and posts those selected posts on his or her blog. Free Money Finance was kind enough to include in this Carnival my post from last week, "Money does contribute to happiness, but..."

A blog carnival is a great way to find other blogs on a topic you're interested in. (The whole purpose of a carnival is to help readers find blogs of interest, and to help blogs find readers.) For instance, I visited the blog My Wealth Builder for the first time through this week's Carnival to read his (or her) post, "Getting motivated to save."

So check out the weekly Carnival of Personal Finance when you get a chance. You can find out when and where the next one will be held at Best of all, you don't have to bring the kids and it won't cost you an arm and a leg for some cheesy carnival ride.
