Welcome to the thirty eight edition of the Financial Carnival for Young Adults. My purpose with this carnival is to create an easy-to-find place for information about finances for young adults. The carnival is hosted here at 20′s Finances almost every week and features the most recent articles from around the web. I hope you enjoy this edition of the carnival.
I’m sorry to those who submitted to last week’s carnival and were disappointed to see that there wasn’t a published edition. There have been lots of changes for me in the past two weeks (about which I will share in the coming weeks) that kept me from publishing it. That and there were some technical difficulties with the submissions. I hope everyone enjoys the upcoming (US) Holiday.
