Presenting…the Carnival of Debt Reduction #54


Hi Everyone! Here’s the Carnival that hits close to home for me, and I’m proud to be hosting it this week. I’d like to give everyone a big thank you for your submissions. Without further ado, here’s 16 juicy debt articles for your reading pleasure (my comments in italic).

Jeff Plumb presents Good Debt and Bad Debt posted at The Buck Stops Here. To me, all debt is bad, but I do feel that some debt isn’t as “bad” as others, as Jeff suggests.

Super Saver presents Debt Ratio Implications posted at My Wealth Builder. Super Saver has calculated their Debt Ratio. Have you?

Erich presents The Courage to Live Debt Free – the Principles of Economic Security posted at LifeTraining – Online. The way society is today, it’s not always easy to live debt-free. Erich shares some principles on how to make it happen.

Golbguru presents How I Killed My Debt and What I Learned From it posted at Money, Matter and More Musings. Golbguru is now debt-free and shares an interesting graph telling a debt-history story.

Jim presents PFCollege: How To Make Saving A Habit posted at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity. Jim gives three things to do if you are working on saving money that apply if you are saving for a small emergency fund or for a car.

    Just having a quick look at your blog and I think this link might be useful for many people, it shows you how to legally reclaim all your excessive bank charges from the past 6 years for FREE. I used it and it worked really well. I’m not sure but i think it only works for the UK and Ireland, anyway keep up the good work.

So, what do you think ?
