Spent the past few weeks lamenting the conclusion of the Twilight saga (among other endings)?
Well, pick yourself up and see what you’ve been missing on the SALT™ Blog.
- We found the only place where Cloud Atlas didn’t disappoint: our student-debt/box-office mash-up metric the Mirror Meter.
- Intern Shane rang in the season… for finding cheap decorations on eBay. He unwrapped stockings, Santa hats, and McGriddle (?!) ornaments for less than $5.
- Aaron Weber tapped into his endless supply of hiring managers with a marketing VP offering tips for making your résumé and cover letter stand out.
- Mamma mia, Intern Alex was at it again. She investigated a money-related song from ABBA for any signs of truth.
- Diane Melville interviewed four scholarship providers to provide behind-the-scenes scholarship advice. We found out what they had to say in our newest video.
- Bridget Casey stopped by to tell us what to do if you don’t meet your financial goals—while examining her successes and failures for 2012.
- Pickpockets may not look like parrots, but we pulled together some memes to help you know what to watch out for when it comes to identity theft
- New Girl gave Jess a new job, and with it, Intern Shane got some long overdue talk about paying the (adorka)bills.
- A full-time community college education costs an average of only $75 per semester week. Diane Melville showed us how you could easily cover that babysitting, running errands, or even playing video games.
- In our video of the week, Intern Shane explained how a giant pile of leaves is a lot like a giant pile of money (and not because they both involve things that are green).
- Amanda Abella listed her favorite networking tools and events for post-grad millennials. Even better? They’re all FREE.
- Did you stop this morning for a coffee? (Or three coffees… It’s OK. It’s Monday.) Our latest comic examined what little purchases like these could end up costing you if you don’t keep track of them.
- We went “all aboard” for another edition of Shane’s Trains and Automobiles. And unlike past posts, this one actually talked about trains—specifically why Intern Shane loves them so much.
- Our latest burning question was “on fire” like Alicia Keys (and not that guy in the Citibank commercial) to find activities that make our bloggers’ lives less boring and more money savvy.
