I guess St. Patrick’s Day is a good-ish reason for not paying complete attention to SALT™ Blog last week (so long as you read my eBay article and bought a hat or something).

But while you were eating corned beef and cabbage or chasing leprechauns, we were trying to help you get lucky with your finances. Here’s what you missed.

  • Shane related basketball to budgeting in the video of the week by detailing how “dunk victim” Brandon Knight shows us how to recover from financial trouble. I never knew someone could be a victim of slam dunking before.
  • Gas is a favorite thing to complain about among commuters. Susie Boretti taught us how to save on gas (and she only mentioned walking to school uphill one way in the intro). Kudos.
  • We learned some strategies to defeat debt this month from Amanda Abella and were given loads of helpful resources.
  • Diane Melville taught us that transfer admissions rates are not always the same as high school admissions rates, and then she showed us how to find out what they are.
  • We learned about ways to avoid fast food on the go from Anna Marden. While a McChicken and a small fry is tempting, turns out a granola bar and thermos full of soup is cheaper and healthier. I’m lovin’ it.
  • Ryan wrote an article with a title that looks like alphabet soup. But it’s about taxes and will definitely teach you something; you can read an excerpt on the blog or the whole thing on the SALT website.
  • Diane also taught us how to write a financial aid appeal letter if you did not receive the aid that you feel you need/deserve for the upcoming year.
  • Mike Restiano told us about his decision to come home for spring break instead of backpacking Europe. Turns out, it’s really not as bad as it sounds—even if your parents did replace you with a teddy bear.
