There’s not a lot of good news out there these days. The stock market continues to reach new lows, unemployment is skyrocketing, and economists are predicting this recession will be around a lot longer than we first hoped.

Last by not least, Money Under 30 was featured in two carnivals this week: The Carnival of Personal Finance at Money Ning and the Festival of Frugality at the Financial Wellness Project. Thanks to the hosts!
