The Dime Roll: Young Money (Not the Lil' Wayne Kind)

August 11, 2017

People really like talking about millennials. So, we obviously wanted to join in on the conversation this week on The Dime. Our young friends are changing the #money game inside and out, and we've got some pretty interesting stats about the way they're looking at retirement (spoiler alert: they're actually pretty smaht about it). Plus, we've got a guest post from a member of that even younger (cray, we know) "Z" generation that'll help you prioritize your back-to-school shopping. If, you know, you're going to be a high school junior (which he is). Holy time travel...

Plus, we've also got some follow-up millennial money articles for your reading pleasure, as well as some non-financial content from around the World Wide Web (you know, 'cuz it's Friyay). 

Are you a diehard Dimer? If so, we'd love for you to pass us along to your friends and family (dogs and grandmas included). We also love hearing from our readers, so hit us up on Facebook and Twitter if you've got something to share. (C'mon...you know you want to.)
