Carnival of Personal Finance

It's hard to believe the Carnival of Personal Finance is celebrating its 3rd anniversary this week. Head on over to Consumerism Commentary to take a look...

Congrats on being included in the Carnival! The "top five personal finance blunders" reminded me of a sixth: don't lend money to a boyfriend/girlfriend. (I'm talking big amounts, not $50 to cover groceries, although if your significant other needs money to cover the groceries, he or she really needs to be reading your blog!)

I did this a couple years ago and, surprise, we broke up. Even though I'm 99% certain I'll get paid back - we had even signed an agreement about what would happen if we did break up - the money he owes me is less a priority than say, adding a deck onto his house. He's working on a refi loan right now and said I'll get a chunk of that, but with the current mortgage climate and the fact that I'm leaving town in two weeks... oy. I learned my lesson.
