I enjoyed CreditCards.com’s fantastic effort with this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance.    My article discussing a previous fantastic yet inexpensive weekend was included, striking the fancy of The Consumerist, which featured it in their article titled Where To Find Great Personal Finance Writing Online, a nice gesture from the same company that brings you Consumer Reports magazine.

My favorite article of the carnival, however, is Good Financial Cents’ Four Fifteen-Minute Financial Fixes.  In addition to the alliterative title, Jeff describes some important yet non time consuming behaviors to consider doing.  It makes for a stark contrast with Ron Lieber’s article in the NY Times last month.  Mr. Lieber describes a fiscal health day (That’s right – an entire day!).  Not many of us ever get a whole day for fiscal clean-up (or would use it in such a way if they did), but both Jeff’s 15 minute tips and Ron’s day-long fiscal adventure log are filled with suggestions you ought to consider – whether you have just a few minutes to spare or an entire day.

Either way, the key is to get started, don’t you think?
