For Marci and Doug...And Everybody Else


Thanks to Colby Community College for an unusually warm welcome last night. Here's some of the resources I mentioned:

Qvisory.org is a nonprofit providing information and advocacy for Generation Debt.

Mint.com is a free online money management and budgeting tool. Geezeo is another one.

SmartyPig is a way to start saving online at a pretty good rate (3.9% APR) and to get help from family and friends.

Save Now or Die Trying is a book by Mark Bruno about retirement planning for young people. Here's a Yahoo! column I wrote about the book.

Annualcreditreport.com is THE site to get your free credit report as required by law, to take a look at what old debts you may have and start to get them in order. You can look up all your old student loans here.

The Freelancers Union provides health insurance programs and other resources for freelancers.

If you need to consolidate a student loan, try a Direct Consolidation Loan. To understand the new Income Based Repayment programs that make student loan payments more affordable, go here.
