Last Note:
This message is for those who contributed to this Carnival. I want to thank you for your contributions, but I also want to encourage each of you to remember that this is the CARNIVAL OF DEBT REDUCTION. Articles submitted should be about DEBT REDUCTION. This Carnival is NOT for general personal finance issues. There is a Carnival for those posts, but this is not it. I strongly suggest to those of you who host the Carnival and to those who post to the Carnival, that we all stick to the assigned format: DEBT REDUCTION. Just my 2 cents.

I posted these in the order that I received them. If I have left your article out, please email me and I will try to include it. One submission was left out on purpose because it was clearly a solicitation for a particular business. You know who you are…
