Steve Harvey reading question on Family Feud set with man and woman ready to buzz in.

I’d totally watch Steve Harvey mediate financial disputes. I bet it’d be as enjoyable as Think Like A Man.

Here’s the news that caught my eye today while wondering how this guy ever lost his voice over job for Aflac.

(“I am the one who quacks”?)

  • Last week, we reminded you to take pride in your work—whether you’re an air-freight handler, barista, or anything else. Well, some New York baristas took that message to heart. They’re showing just how much they care about their work by telling us that they chose that career “because of [their] passion for the drink,” not because Plan A didn’t come through.
  • I’m a bad tipper. Not that I don’t tip enough (I’d like to think I’m at least average in that respect), but rather, I struggle at being able to tip people. On my last vacation, I failed to tip an airport shuttle driver and a valet because the opportunity to not do so awkwardly didn’t present itself. Sorry. Therefore, my travel tipping etiquette is not good. If you want to know how good yours is, check out this article from Good Financial Cents.
  • Looking for some cheap eats that don’t involve ramen? Check out these fantastic frugal meal ideas from past and present. The list includes some favorites (Sloppy Joes, spaghetti), as well some things that maybe you’re less familiar with—like “swamp gravy” (no, it’s not where Paula Deen came from). Oh, and don’t worry, ramen is actually listed as well. No meal is complete without it.
