Carnival of Personal Finance #285 – Google Search Money Stories Edition
- 35 Comment
Welcome to the Carnival of Personal Finance #285 – Google Search Money Stories Edition here at Realm of Prosperity!
I loved the refreshing Google ad played during Super Bowl XLIV, which used web searches to tell a story. And once in a while, I like to take things in a creative direction (check out this funky post). So, I’ve created three personal finance-related Google Search stories for your enjoyment as you peruse this week’s fine articles.
Hope you like them and please comment with your favorite video (the last one is another Search Story from Google)!
Let’s start off my favorite articles by paying tribute to the personal finance blog that inspired me to create Realm of Prosperity over 3 years ago.
Bob from Christian Finances presents How to Save Hundreds of Dollars By Taking a Day Off Work. Life will entail making plenty of sacrifices and we will often need to determine whether a certain sacrifice is worth making.
