Welcome to the November 18, 2009 edition of the carnival of economic fun. There were plenty of good submissions, and as usual, I screened the submissions so that you are left with the most delightful ones for your reading. Believe me, these seven articles are definitely worth a read.
1. To kick it off, here's an unconventional question: "How do I get laid off?" That seems strange in this economy, but it's a good question. Let Wise Bread tell you why.
Wise_Bread presents How to Get Laid Off by a Step by Step Guide posted at Wisebread.
2. Next up, here's an article on how to save on childcare. It looks like good advice.
MatthewPaulson presents Money Saving Tips for New Parents posted at Fine-Tuned Finances.
3. This next post has some positive attitude for you.
Debbie Dragon presents Get Some Gratitude in Your Attitude posted at Empowering Mom.
4. This next post on elevator pitches draws an unlikely connection with pickup lines. The goal? Be memorable.
Angel Taylor presents 3 Steps to an Effective Elevator Pitch posted at Angel Taylor's MLM Profits Blog.
5. This next article discusses the dangers of attributing correlation to causation in the context of credit cards and spending. This reminds me of my Macy's card posts. Fun stuff.
Darwin presents The Truth About Rewards Credit Cards – But, Is it Really True? posted at Darwin's Finance
6. Zombies? Stock market? Put them together and you'll get this next post. What can Zombies teach us about the stock market and investing?
Soo-Young presents 10 Things Zombieland Taught Me About Stock Market Investing posted at Bullishness.com
7. I don't know if I would go to the same extreme of decluttering my place (I personally like some level of clutter), but this next post has some interesting suggestions.
Jake presents Get rid of everything you own posted at Your Best Weekend.
I hope you enjoyed this carnival. Just like ABC's television programming schedule, the carnival of economic fun will be taking a break for the holiday season. I will return with another carnival some time early next year, but for now, stay fun and enjoy life.
