Admissions Abridged

Don’t you wish it was summer?  I love a good snowfall as much as anyone else but all these heavy sweaters and boots are making me wish for flip flops and swimming pools.  Luckily for me I have tons of opportunities to think about summer because (believe it or not) it’s time to plan for internships, jobs, and a whole variety of summer activities.  What’s on the menu for you this summer? Summer Pre-College.  This is a go-to for many students, especially those aiming for top-tier institutions.

Kaplan on Your Money

Annuities can be good, bad or downright ugly. Which ones are good to invest in, and why? (And what is an annuity, anyway?).  In my previous article, I explained the kinds of annuities that are “bad” or “ugly” for investors: virtually all variable annuities, including indexed annuities (that are misleadingly categorized at a type of fixed annuity). My objections have to do with cost and the fact that they often are sold to people who don’t need or understand them. In this 2nd article, I’ll focus ...

The Mommy's Review

I love Halloween! It’s one of my favorite holidays, especially since there is so much to do, and it’s so much fun for the kids. I also love that you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Sure, you could go to the store and buy brand-new costumes and decorate your house like crazy, but it’s also a holiday you can do on a budget. Secondhand costumes purchased from Facebook swap groups? Check. Dollar store decorations? You betcha. Hitting up the free local trick-or-treating events? You can bet all of your Fun Size M&Ms ...
