Carnival of Money Stories #72: Back To School Edition

by Broke Grad on August 12, 2008

As summer draws to a close, students everywhere are getting ready to head back to school. Since I finally finished my master’s degree, I won’t be heading back to school this August. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t help kick in a new school year by sharing the 72nd edition of the Carnival of Money Stories.

While teachers and professors will never admit it, everybody has their favorites. I’m neither a teacher, nor a professor, so here are my favorite articles submitted to this week’s carnival.

One of the best parts of going back to school is getting to catch up with everybody. Check out the following articles to learn about the progress these bloggers have made towards accomplishing their financial goals.

Money Management Stories

One topic you probably won’t hear much about in school is money management. Fortunately, there’s a thing called the Internet, and you’re looking at it. The following articles cover a variety of different approaches to managing your money.

Career and Business Stories

If you’re still in high school or college, finding a job or starting a business may be one of the last things on your mind, but it’s never too early to start. Check out these great articles to get a head start on knowing what to expect when you finally do enter the real world.

Food and Frugality Stories

We need food to survive, and we need money for food. Peruse the following articles for some great tips on both of these topics.

Shopping Stories

Back to school sales pop up everywhere around this time of the year. Here are some articles with even more money saving advice while you’re out shopping.

Credit and Debt Stories

The average college student graduates with credit card debt, student loan debt, or a combination of both. Start reading these articles before you graduate and you may be able to eliminate your debt faster than you expect.

Investing Stories

Investing is a topic that doesn’t cross the minds of most college students, but it should because time is on your side when it comes to investing. Here’s a chance for college students to do some extracurricular learning.

Other Stories

Weird at school

Throughout school, I always found the topics that didn’t really fit into the curriculum to be some of the most interesting material. If you felt that way too, then this category is perfect for you.
