[ad_1] Photo: Nina Konstantinidou Last week, we outlined the ABI Commission on Consumer Bankruptcy’s proposals to improve the fresh start in bankruptcy by expanding the discharge of more student loans.  But the Commission recommended Congress make other changes to help people burdened with student loan debt.

What You Need To Know About First- and Second-Year Home Expenses

[ad_1] My husband and I were so excited to buy our house. We’d been renting since college and were eager to have our own place. Finally, no one could tell us how many dogs we could have or how many posters we could hang up. Once we moved into our home, we quickly realized how much we didn’t know.

Even now that we’ve been in our house for a year, we’re still surprised at how much...
