call for February carnival submissions: {finances}

Thanks to everyone who participated in the November Simplicity Parenting Carnival! It was a great success! We hope you’ll join us again, Justine at The Lone Home Ranger and Emily at S.A.H.M. i AM, for another simplicity parenting carnival. If you’re joining us for the first time, feel free to check out the May, June, August , October, and November 2012 carnivals as well! Read more about our carnival and future topics here.

February 2013: Finances
How do you handle finances while living simply? Are your finances complex despite your simple living priorities? Do you wish your finances were simpler?

Have you tried to cut back in some areas but spend more in others? Is simple living a luxury, a choice, or a necessity? Are you naturally frugal or is it a learned skill you’re still developing? Do simple finances and frugality go hand in hand?

This month is all about finances. Tell us how you keep it simple in your household!

Submission Details
If you’ve never read nor participated in a blog carnival before, a blog carnival is a chance for different bloggers to share posts regarding a specific theme or topic. The February submission deadline is 11:59pm EDT Tuesday, February 19th, and the carnival will be posted Tuesday, February 26th.

Please write a new post for the carnival and do not publish it until the day of the carnival. Email your blog post to Emily at emilysahmiam {at} gmail {dot} com and fill out other necessary details using the embedded Google document submission form below by 11:59pm EDT Tuesday, February 19th. We will email you with further instructions prior to the carnival day. (Note: If you need help learning how to determine a blog URL in advance, Lauren Wayne @ Hobo Mama provides a great explanation. She also has many other blogging tutorials available here.)

Finally, keep it clean, stick to the topic, check your grammar and spelling, and don’t use this carnival as a platform to put others down. We want this carnival to be useful, supportive, and fun! If you have any content-related questions, feel free to email Emily at emilysahmiam {at} gmail {dot} com. Technical questions go to Justine at lonehomeranger {at} gmail {dot} com. We reserve the right not to accept posts we find inappropriate for this carnival.

Thanks for recording your submission! Don’t forget to email your blog post submission to Emily at emilysahmiam {at} gmail {dot} com. Also feel free to share this carnival with others! We’re using the Twitter hashtag #SimParCar. We are also collecting great simplicity parenting related ideas on this Pinterest board
