We help you buy stocks for free with a great interview with Matt Gidney from Loyal3. Then we help you buy groceries cheaper by taking a tour of the new Favado app with Erin Chase. We compare credit card fees with Kari Luckett from CompareWallet, and finally we help make taxes simpler with MyFreeTaxes.
Latisha Styles from YoungFinances.com and Joel Larsgaard from SaveOutsideTheBox.com join Paula Pant (AffordAnything.com) to teach you how to become a financial rebel. Leather jacket? Not needed to be cool with this crowd.
PK from DQYDJ.net tells you why your professional helpers might not work as hard for you as they do for themselves.
