I was part of the 24th carnival of money stories, which was hosted at Enough Wealth just recently. My entry about small expenses leading up to a large expense was included.
Two articles that caught my attention were:-
Money and Such - The most expensive loan in history
teaspoonfinance.com - Solving Our Savings and Budget Issues - The No-Budget Budget Way
There are also plenty of other money stories that has personal spin to it as well. Happy reading.
