The Dime Roll: Affordable Skiing, Mind Tricks to Save Money, the A.I. of the Future, and More

February 10, 2017

This week on The Dime Roll, it's all about the insula, the part of the brain that experts believe may contribute to people's money habits—namely, whether they tend to be savers or spenders. For those of you out there who fall into the latter category, we've got some tips for reeling in the urge to buy all the things all the time. If spending bennies isn't your vice, how about checking out our piece on spending time giving back to your community? The act itself is free, but what you get out of it—well, that's priceless. Plus, as always, we’ve got some awesome links to personal finance experts and news from across the web (such as everyone's burning question: Is yoga truly a "workout?").

If you love The Dime, do us a favor and share it with your friends. We’re always looking for new Facebook and Twitter followers, and don’t forget to forward the weekly newsletter to anyone you think might enjoy us. Thank you!
