The Dime Roll: Holiday Gifts for Teachers, Forgiving Student Loans, and More

December 2, 2016

In the spirit of the impending gift-giving season, we’ve got two great stories on shopping in this week's edition of The Dime Roll. First, we break down how shopping at local businesses can benefit everyone. Then, we throwback with some old skool ‘90s nostalgia to help your holiday gift-giving for everyone on your list. Plus, as always, we’ve got some awesome links to personal finance experts and news from across the web (including why millennials cutting the cord may not exactly be hurting the big cable TV companies).

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 everyone you know who you think might enjoy reading. Thank you!
