The Dime Roll: Making NFL Footballs, Creating a Fun Fund, Avoiding the Flu, and More

February 3, 2017

This week on The Dime Roll, we've got...salads. They're not that exciting, and they definitely don't rank high on the comfort food scale, but if trying to better your diet is a goal for 2017, then this tried and true staple of healthy eating is probably all over your radar (and your plate). So, it's no wonder you're already feeling a little...well, sick of salads. Luckily, we're here to deliver some pretty awesome alternatives to keep your nutrient-and-veggie game on point. Oh, and in case you didn't hear, this Sunday is the Super Bowl. It's a bummer that the Broncos won't be playing this time around, but that doesn't mean you can't still throw a a bangin' party. In fact, we'd argue that your guests need you to more than ever this year. Plus, as always, we’ve got some awesome links to personal finance experts and news from across the web (case in point: did you know the flu virus has spread to 40 states so far? We hope you didn't skip out on your vaccine this year...).

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!
