Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to the Friday, July 11, 2008 edition of On the Moneyed Midways! Every week, we seek out the top posts from the best of the past week's business and money-related blog carnivals and assemble them here, your one-stop shop for the best reading in the business and money-related blogosphere!

This week, we found ourselves highlighting the best of those business and money-related blog carnivals! Two, the Carnival of Real Estate and the Money Hacks Carnival made the cut as being the best posts of the carnivals they represented. We'd also like to give squawkfox's a special mention for this week's "bare necessities" edition of the Festival of Frugality!

As many of these things as we read, we really appreciate when the hosts go the extra mile to deliver something more than what we expect - these three are well worth your time!

That said, the best posts from the best of the week's business and money-related blog carnivals await you below....
