It's been a pretty busy week around here — a guest column on the US dollar, results of a study on how people feel about online banking, and a look at how budgets are affecting the number of hours people work.

We also participated in 2 — yep, read it 2 — carnivals this week. In addition to the Carnival of Personal Finance, hosted by Money Ning, we were a part of the Money Hacks carnival, hosted by Moolanomy.

Fred's look at Circuit City's saving plan and my rant on E-Loan's online savings account were included in the carnivals.

A few of the highlights from the carnivals include:

6 Situations Where I Still Need Cash - Student Scrooge

The time has finally come — for the first time in almost two months, tomorrow I will be visiting an ATM. My local ATM and I used to be much better friends, but it just does not serve the same role in my life which it once did. Using my credit card (responsibly) has enabled me to pay most of my expenses over the past few weeks without cash, with added budget tracking benefits. As part of my build-up to tomorrow’s ATM visit, however, I want to take a moment and reflect on some of the expenses that still keep me using cash every now and then.
