The Dime Roll: Car Resale Value, Frugal Holidays, Credit Resolutions, and More

December 23, 2016

This week on the Dime Roll, we’ve got two great posts on how to maximize your holiday entertainment. First, if cooking on Christmas isn’t your thing but you think you’re stuck eating ramen noodles because everywhere is closed, think again. Then it’s a holiday movie guide for everyone who’s sick of watching the “classics”. Plus, as always, we’ve got some awesome links to personal finance experts and news from across the web (including why the super-fun yet super-dangerous trend of Ikea sleepovers may be over before it even began).

Finally, from everyone here at the Dime, Happy Holidays!
