Now, we totally get it if you need a little more time to get back into the groove of the week—or to just figure out your next move. If that sounds like you (and here’s hoping that Rob Ford link does not), check out what you may have missed on the SALT™ Blog.
- Globetrotter Jonathan Sparling (sorry, not the basketball-playing kind) shared three simple, straightforward ways you can fund a big purchase, i.e, something more than a bucket of confetti.
- We introduced you to Repayment Navigator, our newest tool on saltmoney.org that helps you chart a course to your own debt-free destination.
- Diane Melville highlighted four scholarship opportunities with application deadlines coming up this December.
- Mike Restiano figured out some different ways you can cut transportation costs for a night out. (A taxi may be the least fun way to spend money when you hit the town; well, after this.)
- With student loan grace periods coming to a close, Betsy Mayotte and Piglet answered a question on a lot of peoples’ minds: should I consolidate my loans?
- Speaking of questions from borrowers, two of our SALT counselors dropped by to reply to four common queries they receive from borrowers entering repayment.
- Shane McNichol told us how your spending changes after you graduate from college. (Money spent on late-night food is, strangely, not covered …)
- Anna Marden played some grocery games (fortunately, not with Guy Fieri) to identify 10 different ways you could save big at the supermarket.
- If you weren’t hungry after that last post, Evelyn Ngugi probably got you there with her three sweet money-saving snack ideas.
- Our video of the week taught us that if you can’t beat your #20SomethingProblems, you might as well laugh at them. (Or find help at FaceTheRed.com. Yeah, do that instead.)
- You can also win prizes at FaceTheRed.com, including $200 worth of airfare from StudentUniverse. Where should you go with that money? Well, in a sponsored post, StudentUniverse shares a few ideas.
- Wondering what happens if you miss a student loan payment … or six? Well, thanks to our latest infographic, you can find the answers without suffering any of the misfortune that comes with them.
- In our latest burning question, our bloggers shared some of their work experiences that figuratively “bit.” (Or, in Brigit’s case, literally did. Being a farmer’s daughter is tough!)
