Welcome to the 160th edition of the best of money carnival featuring a weekly top ten blog posts of the week!  It was really cool and tough picking through all the great posts to include and then ranking them in a top ten.  As you can probably tell, I’m into posts about simple money issues and time management.  I also threw one in there for all the Geeks… 🙂  Enjoy!  And feel free to trash me in the comments if yours didn’t make it!  I assure you it’s not personal 🙂

3. Jeremy presents Leaving Your Heart Out Of Financial Decisions posted at Modest Money. Have you ever wondered why we sometimes rush into some financial decisions without properly thinking things through?

2. Jeff Rose presents My “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” Experience posted at Good Financial Cents. We all have them; those moments in our lives where we are presented with a crossroad. Where each path has the potential to lead us into a totally different result.

No Problem!

I actually have a few posts in the hopper. I’m thinking of posting original Nick material twice a week and opening up to guest posts the additional days. I was going to do Monday this week, but had the carnival, so we’ll either do it tomorrow or Wednesday.
