Unexpectedly Intriguing!
08 November 2008

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Welcome to this special Saturday, November 8, 2008 edition of On the Moneyed Midways, your single source to catch up on all the best posts from the best of the past week's money and business related blog carnivals!

As always, a "special" Saturday edition really means just one thing: we didn't get around to putting this week's edition of OMM together on Friday! Remember, where OMM is concerned, "special" = "late!"

Fortunately for our handful of readers however, "late" does not equal "poor quality!" Here's a quick preview of the kinds of things you'll find in this week's edition:

  • Where can you find work you can do from home?
  • How will the credit crunch affect a graduating high school senior's ability to score financial aid?
  • Can you really feed the homeless by dumpster diving?

These posts and seven others, including The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!, await you below!...
