The Carnival Of Personal Finance (#126)

Welcome to the 126th Carnival of Personal Finance.  For the readers who are not familiar with the CoPF, it's where personal finance bloggers submit their best articles of the week with one blog doing the hosting. 

Today, it just so happens that Million Dollar Journey gets the honor of hosting the ever growing event.  This week, there was an almost overwhelming number of submissions with 89 in total.  The entries are separated into categories with my top picks below.
