Spent the past week hiding from the media? (Looking at you, Jack and Jackie Harbaugh—unless you like journalists wondering “who is Mom’s favorite.”) Catch up with what you missed on the SALT™ Blog.
- Intern Shane helped us get back on track with our weight-loss resolutions (necessary for me after my Super Bowl party) with five workout essentials for under $5 on eBay.
- Mike Restiano had a pretty lazy winter break, but he at least thought of ways it could be more productive for college students. That has to count for something, right?
- It’s scholarship season! Diane Melville helps you take advantage by hunting down some scholarship opportunities with deadlines right around the corner.
- Our human resources informant returned. And while he/she didn’t refer to applicants as “Monster.ugly,” he/she still gave us some good intel about breaking into the workforce.
- Josie Corichi’s journey to a new wardrobe continued. In her latest installment, she outlined how to create a shopping strategy.
- Apparently, we had shopping on the brain last week (all those end-of-season sales maybe?). Bridget Casey shared why she can be an emotional spender—and how you can avoid that fate.
- Another popular topic? Broken resolutions. Anna Marden outlined why she’s struggled to bring her lunch to work every day and what she’s doing to re-re-tighten her belt.
- Our latest video showed how unemployment deferments can help some federal student loan borrowers postpone their payments.
- Diane Melville told community college students in remedial classes to “get busy living or get busy dying.” (Well, not really, but she did explain some actions they can take to manage these classes and avoid dropping out.)
- The beginning of the year is always a busy hiring season, regardless of what’s going on with the economy. Amanda Abella provided some tips on how you can stand out from the crowd.
- Intern Shane bid a sad farewell to 30 Rock, looking at the financial lessons we could learn from Liz, Jack, and co. (Can’t wait to hear his take on Grizz & Hers. Save money by having more people live together, maybe?)
- Shane found financial lessons all over last week, as he also examined some key money storylines for the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, he missed the biggest one—cutting electrical costs by turning lights offs.
- In honor of zombie love story Warm Bodies, the SALT Blog staff used our sweet, juicy brains to think of some items we’ve brought back from the dead to save money.
