On The Gender Gap Starts at Home -- With Your Allowance

we did not get allowances, but my parents were all about gendered division of labor. I helped with indoor tasks, my brothers helped with outdoor tasks. Even though I did have to do chores more frequently than they did, I still think I got the better end of the deal, because we had a big yard with lots of trees and stuff and I think they spent more time overall helping out. Also they had to help take out the garbage and I didn't.

On From Counting Pennies to Letting Things Slide

I would call for the $10, but I am an obsessive penny pincher about to start graduate school. I would not call yet for the double charge, because it's still "pending" and in my experience, the bank usually catches that sort of thing before the charges shift from pending to applied. If both were applied, then I would call.

On A Father-Daughter Duo Answers Your Questions: Balancing a Relationship With Financial Differences

@wrappedupinbooks too late to edit but I wanted to add a) your loans must be federal b) if they were disbursed pre October 2007 you have to wait until Dec 2015 for the program to be expanded to you c) if your minimum payments aren't enough to cover interest, the interest will still accrue but it will not be capitalized
