This Week's Carnival Of Personal Finance

This week's Carnival Of Personal Finance is up at Free Money Finance. There are some nice posts there. But, if you're pressed for time, here are my favorites:
Everybody Loves Your Money gives some advice on how to Teach Your Kids to be Smart With Money. He's got some great ideas there.

Optimized Living has information on Student Loan Consolidation.

Mighty Bargain Hunter has a post titled Auto Leasing is Back — and Better? However, I'm still not convinced that it's worth it for most people. discusses Identity Theft......What to do About It. He covers both how to avoid it and what to do if you can't.

The Happy Capitalist discusses The ABCs of Mutual Funds. He goes at length into the different share classes and the fees associated with them.
As always, your mileage may vary.
