Most of the school systems here in the Atlanta area have already started back to school . Tomorrow, the last two large school systems in the area will start back to school. What does this mean for me? When I head in to work tomorrow, the traffic will be very heavy and the easy commutes I enjoyed over the summer will come to an end. During the summer, I could get to work in 15-20 minutes. Now that all the school systems are back in session, the same commute could take me anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour.

Here are some of the articles I've enjoyed from the past week:

Carnivals. I participated in one carnival this week and I appreciate the blog host for including my post.

No Debt Plan hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance #165: College Football Edition and included my post, Personal Finance - Back to Basics (Part 1).

Other posts worthy of a mention:

Fire Finance has released the updated list of the Top 100 Personal Finance Blogs Ranked by Traffic. SingleGuyMoney made #41 in the list.

I apologize for the short roundup but I have a large list of things I need to accomplish today so I going to get started on the list.
