Welcome to this week’s Carnival of Debt Reduction! For those not aware, a blog carnival is a gathering of top notch articles under one topic. The goal is to bring readers relevant and timely content so they don’t have to go searching through the web to find it. The Carnival of Debt Reduction is a weekly carnival with a rotating host – hopefully exposing readers to exciting new blogs. This is the 207th week this carnival has been published… an amazing feat!
