If this plan works, a lot of people will be in line for a Celebration Roll.

If this plan works, a lot of people will be in line for something seriously sweet.

Here’s the news that caught my eye today while wondering which celeb would be People‘s money-savviest man alive.

(Channing Tatum’s four movies this year did earn a combined $470 million, so he’s probably still in the running.)

  • Blog super-fan Glenn shared with us this link about the Rolling Jubilee. Not to be confused with the Jubilee Roll (much more delicious), this is the Occupy movement’s plan to eliminate consumer debt by getting people to pay it forward.
  • Self-promotion alert. A big thanks to The Columbian for talking about SALT’s work, particularly with Clark College. (I give them extra points for a fun lede about “salt” being an original form of currency, too.)
  • Sometimes, you may not want to spend a lot of money on ingredients if you don’t know whether a dish will turn out OK. (In my case, it surely won’t.) Well, here’s a remedy for that: 35 recipes that require only two items, like pizza dough made of just self-rising flour and Greek yogurt. Consider me intrigued!
  • Yesterday was a big day for MOOCs, as the American Council on Education agreed to review 5 to 10 of these free online courses—and could eventually recommend that colleges grant credit for these. If that happens, college students could have a new way to save money gold on tuition in the future.
