What Is Your Deepest, Darkest Financial Secret?

by Broke Grad on October 7, 2008

Over the past week, more than 100 people have anonymously shared their deepest, darkest financial secrets (PostSecret-style) for a chance to win an HP notebook PC package worth over $1500. Now it’s time to reveal the secrets to the rest of the world and announce the winners.

With so many great entries, it was extremely difficult to narrow it down to 5 finalists, but it had to be done. I picked my top five, ordered them by the date I received them, and used a random number generator to select the grand prize winner. The winning number was 2.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the contest. I really enjoyed looking at all of the entries, and as you’re about to see, they range from creative to dull, serious to funny, and slightly strange to completely bizarre.

Without further ado, here are the winners of my Secret Notebook PC Giveaway. Be sure to check out the rest of the pages for more financial confessions. Enjoy.
