The Dime Roll: Price Matching, Car Maintenance, Airbnb Quandaries, and More

May 6, 2016

This week's Dime Roll is here! We discussed teacher side gigs in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, alternatives to saving for college in a 529, and why it’s okay if you don’t balance your checkbook the way mom taught you. As always, we’ve also got some of the top personal finance blog posts and news from the week. Enjoy!
