Welcome readers to the 133rd edition of Best of Money Carnival, a collection of top 10 personal finance articles of the week.
Regular readers, if you are not yet familiar with the carnival concept, a carnival is a tool for showcasing the work of fellow personal finance bloggers. Please keep in mind these posts are the best posts published last week. If you like a post, do become a loyal fan of that blogger. Believe me, each of them is a master writer.
If you are a PF blogger and your submission has not been selected, let me assure you I liked all the submissions but, I had to pick the top 10 to my taste. If you are one of the 10 celebrities today, I expect you to bless the carnival with all sorts of social and link love.
Presenting you the top 10 posts with my wife’s choice of top 10 Christmas songs as I am musically challenged and can’t take risk with my own choice of songs. Enjoy the posts and the beautiful songs.
101 Centavos for his short and highly effective narration of walk away negotiation skill.

Editor’s pick and best submission
We do face financial stress at some point in our lives, no matter how rich we are. Watson inc. presents three steps to fight a financial stress, I picked this as the best for usefulness, mass applicability and the writing style.
|“Mary did you know?” by Reba McEntire|
Do let me know your favorite song from the list. Happy reading and merry Christmas! The carnival would come back on January 9, 2012 at Sustainable Personal Finance.

Nice theme of tying awesome posts to Christmas classics. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
Thanks Buck! It was nice indeed. Two back to back movies and a dinner. Not really frugal, still wonderful!
