For this 32nd edition of the Money Hacks Carnival, I decided to go with questions most people ask themselves or problems they tried to solve without really finding the right solutions. Hopefully, you will find some answers through these great articles.

Have you ever tried to be the best? (Editor’s Pick)

We all wanted to be the best in something one day. We worked hard, tried to focus on our goal and sometimes we succeed, sometimes we fail. Here are the bloggers who succeed submitting the best articles of personal finance this week (this is definitely not a big prize, but winning is winnings, right?) Maybe next year we can charter a used sea ray yacht for sale for the winners.

Have you ever tried to beat your brother-in-law’s investment return?

Years after years, during the Christmas party, your brother-in-law (or worst, your father-in-law) brings the investment topic on the table and tell you how great his broker did with his portfolio. If you are tired to be the last one on the hot stock every time (you probably just bought RIM two months ago!), try listening to these guys:

Have you ever try to make a budget and make it fit at the end of the month?

Several people who have a budget just can’t follow it. They think that writing down numbers on a piece of paper will actually make them reduce their spending habits. It’s either a money management problem or a saving problem. Find out about great frugal tricks and ways to manage your money differently in this category:

Have you ever wonder how come young kids are driving brand new Porches and BMers?

This is simply because they understood main principles of economics and personal finance.
