The Hidden Cost of Convenience

[ad_1]When I am running out of toilet paper, I tap my Amazon app to order toilet paper (along with a weeks worth of groceries to make the order purchase minimum) to be delivered straight to my door within hours. For dinner, I often order on Postmates or GrubHub and about 30 minutes later, dinner is served. When I am feeling tight, I order an in house- massage right to my doorstep through Zeel.

Should You Get A Part-Time Student Job?

[ad_1] College – it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. My university experience, like so many others, was a cocktail of stress, fun and every emotion on the spectrum. The highs far outweighed the lows, but I can still vividly remember the pain of  failing a test or having to pull an all-nighter. It’s a time where so much is expected of you, with so little guidance on how to stay on top of it all. If you add a part-time job on top of that, it can be a recipe for disaster. But working through your college...

College Students: Here are The Biggest Financial Mistakes You Need to Avoid

[ad_1] Slipping up while in college is basically a rite of passage. I made so many mistakes at Indiana University – many of which I would never admit publicly – that reminiscing on my college years comes with a heavy dose of embarrassment. Thankfully, most mistakes made while at university are temporary. They may have short-term consequences, but drinking tickets and dorm infractions don’t tend to follow you into adult life. Financial mistakes, on the other hand, can be a little stickier. College may seem like a safe little bubble, but money is still money. The cash you blow on parties and...

Side Hustle 101: What You Need to Know About Renting Your Car

[ad_1] In the last decade, the idea of sharing — and monetizing — the things you’re not using has gained traction at lightning speed, and that’s thanks in large part to technology. It seems like everyone has some sort of side-hustle these days. Have an empty guest room? Airbnb can help you rent it out. Got a car and a few extra hours on the weekend? Uber and Lyft are happy to match you up with a rider.   When you combine this rise in new money-making opportunities with the fact that the average car spends 95 percent of its life sitting...

What You Need To Know About Student Credit Cards

[ad_1] Before my husband and I got married, we had a conversation about merging our finances. I wasn’t too worried about his financial habits – he’s always lived a  frugal lifestyle – but I wanted to know how compatible we were. I was more than a little surprised to find out he had no credit score.   As it turns out, he had avoided getting a credit card all through college because he was scared of falling into debt. The way he saw it, there was no reason to use credit if he only made purchases he could afford with cash. That...
