Welcome to this week’s edition of the Carnival of MoneyPros! This week’s edition is called the “home improvement” edition because I am on the home stretch of all the remodeling/updating of our house. I took a week back in September to do a lot of painting and ordering new carpet, and updating our powder room. This week I was at it again with more painting and finishing up to smaller things that have been pushed to the side – like trim work. When all is said and done, I am planning to have 95% of the stuff done with only a few outstanding mini-projects left.
During my downtime, while I waited for paint to dry, I did a good amount of reading, many of which were the posts below. I hope you find benefit with them and can apply them to your finances!
