I’m proud to be hosting this week, and enjoyed the opportunity to look at quite a few excellent posts! In total, there were 75 submissions this week, and a number of them were in the final group to be considered. Ultimately, there were some tough cuts, but I managed to select the 10 that I thought were the best overall.
So if you didn’t make it, don’t worry, as only 10 were chosen and 65 didn’t get in. Please try again in a future edition of the carnival.
If your post was one of the 10, congratulations!
With that, let’s go the the countdown:
#10 – Bob from Christian PF presents 6 Ways To Hedge Against Inflation

#9 – SB from One Cent at a Time presents 4 Steps in the Pursuit of Being Rich

#6 – Jeremy from Personal Finance Whiz presents Should I Contribute to a 401(k) or Pay Off Debt?
Popular advice is to pay off all your debt before saving for retirement, but if you do you may be leaving a lot of money on the table.
#5 – Lazy Man from Lazy Man and Money presents Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme? (Part 3: How to Fix Social Security)
I still plan for my retirement as if Social Security doesn’t exist – simply because a lot can happen in the 30 years before I get to take it. If I do end up receiving benefits, that’s just frosting on the retirement cake

If you use cash back credit cards with bonus levels, here’s one thing you MUST do to be sure you’re getting the rewards you expect.

Christmas buying binges often derail those working on debt reduction. Having “the talk” is a great way to break through that barrier
#2 – Jill from My Dollar Plan presents Estate Planning for Every Age
An estate plan is something everyone should look at as a part of their long-term financial plan. If the unthinkable happens, it can make things a lot easier for everyone left behind.
#1 – Suba from Wealth Informatics presents Should you Buy or Rent? Calculator + Inforgraphics
Buy or rent is a question that every one of us ask ourselves at some point of time. I have created a calculator and put together an infographics on the buy vs rent data from different sources that might help answer this question.
