Financial Simplicity Carnival – the Pete, Repeat (or is it Re-Pete?) Edition!

by Nick on April 8, 2013

Happy Monday!  So I’m continuing the Financial Simplicity Carnival this week here at Step Away from the Mall (hence, the “Pete, Repeat” title).  In the past I’ve used  other blogs to host and I’d still love to do that.  But because it took a while to get the carnival back up and running, I’m going to do a few at the beginning here to get some momentum built up for the carnival again.

This week we had a TON of great posts submit.  I was a bit selective on who I included, trying to keep the picks to a top 10 (yes… if you count it’s actually 12, but I couldn’t resist…). We got some great posts in here as the weather finally turns sunny and my Boston Red Sox (yes… Sox fan in NY) turn some doubters into believers….

Let’s dig in!

Anyone up for a long trip to the DMV?  Might be a good place to sit with a book all day instead of my living room (where I would be distracted) and make some coin while reading… Wonder if the DMV would frown upon it.  Imagine if it caught on so well that the room was full of spot sellers… 🙂

Until next time, put your credit card down and slowly step away from the mall!
