I participated in a few carnivals this week. On Monday, the Carnival of Personal of Finance was hosted at Budgeting Babe included my article Green Living: Bottled Water. On Thursday the Finance Fiesta was hosted at Living Almost Large and included my article Green Living: Drive Smarter. And on Friday Kids and Money was hosted at MoneyHack and included my article Christmas in July.

Master Your Card gives the low down on the difference between FDIC and NCUA. I’m embarrassed to say I’ve never realized a credit union isn’t FDIC insured. But now that Kristy mentions it I have seen the signs that they are NCUA insured. I just never thought about what that meant.

The Happy Rock is having a daycare dilemma. The cost of daycare is just outrageous. I feel his pain.
