Thinking of buying a niece, nephew, cousin, or roommate a board game for Christmas? Why not!
Board games are great fun for any time of the year, especially the holidays when it’s too cold to go outside.
Although I am more of a word-game person, I won’t pass up a game with cards, dice, drawing materials, or a timer. Consider these games and how they secretly (or not so secretly) surprise with good-to-know financial lessons.

We’ve all had that daydream: What would I do with a million dollars? (Mine involves investments, saving tigers, and traveling. Oh, and pay off college loans—I almost forgot!)
Well, forget the million, these days its a BILLION dollars. We are in the 21st century, people.
In “Billionaire,” Travie McCoy and Bruno Mars tell us about their daydreams; let’s look at some of their lyrics to see what they have to say.
All month, we’ve been whetting your appetite for Nom by SALT. Now, we’re offering up our most appetizing dish to date: a sneak preview of this new app’s functionality, courtesy of one hungry, money savvy intern. Get your forks, spoons, and phones ready—it’s time to dig in to Nom.
The best way approach different things, like what to make for dinner, or what to wear for Halloween, is to use what you already have.
Instead of buying something new, just look around your house and see what you can find. Check out these low cost do-it-yourself activities I found on Pinterest.
Why Pinterest? Because it’s cool.
