Here’s the news that caught my eye today while thinking that donuts are greatest cheap wedding favor.
(Well, really, they’re the greatest cheap anything.)
- The most money-savvy ingredient in your fridge? According to Wise Bread, it’s mayonnaise. If you can get past their image of someone eating straight spoonfuls of mayo from the jar (eating mayo is never cute), you’ll find some little miracles you can whip up with it.
- We know that Intern Sasha is hoping to volunteer at Bonneroo this summer to cut her concert costs. If you’re looking for a show to do the same, check out this overview of summer music festivals and how much they cost.
- Warning: self-promotion ahead. IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program honored SALT™ as one of their 2013 Laureates. Not to be confused with poet laureates (fingers crossed on that one) these awards go to organizations that use “information technology to promote positive social, economic and educational change.”
- Here’s something that many law students may object to: there are too many lawyers and too few jobs, with a 7.3 percent loss in legal employment expected for 2013. (At least we’ll still have plenty of lawyer puns.)
- According to new research, up to 10% of college students may be addicted to their smartphones. Insofar as college student addictions go, this probably isn’t the worst one that pops up on campuses.
- Good news for those smartphone addicts? You could save a lot of living space and money by having all your media on your phone. At least, that’s the hypothesis of this infographic.
- “High stress” plus “below median average pay” equals “the most underpaid jobs in America.” U.S. News pulls together this list, which includes professions like daycare director and police dispatcher. (Blog editor must have come in 11, I guess.)
I’ll be taking a break from this column for the next couple of weeks, so Interns Shane and Sasha will be bringing you the best money-related news from around the Web in my absence. Enjoy!
