"Food and gas are such a money drain!"
For recurring expenses, you and your spouse should work together to make the money you spend work harder. "To save on gas, look for online tools that can help you find the best prices in your area. The GasBuddy app, for example, shows you prices from all the stations in your area, as well as the distance to each," says Linda Descano, the president and CEO of Women & Co., a service of Citi that provides multi-faceted information about all things money-related. You should also look for credit cards that offer rewards points (which you can use for gas cards) and cash back on items like gas and groceries. To save money on food, make a weekly menu, not just a shopping list. Shopping for only what's on your menu will save both tim...Read More »

Unfortunately for Hollywood, not every celebrity out there is born with a rock star name (although if you have parents like Gwen Stefani or Mariah Carey, you could be in luck!) For the not-so-lucky ones, changing your name from Reginald Hercules Dwight to Elton John might just make you the coolest cat in the universe! Did you know that Kate Middleton's real name is Catherine Elizabeth Mountbatten-Windsor or that Whoopi Goldberg was actually born Caryn Elaine Johnson? These stars not only took it upon themselves to change their looks and their lifestyles, but their entire names, too!

After spending pretty much her whole career at Dunder Mifflin, her resume was a blank page with a few lines on it-text so brief that it "could fit on a Post-it note." Sure, it was funny (and yes, she still got the job!)-but for some of us, it hit a little too close to home. You often hear the advice, "keep your resume to one page," but what if you type out your education and work experience, and you still see a half page of white space left? Don't worry. Whether you're right out of school or you've been at the same company for years like Pam, here are a few strategic ways to fill up that page.

While we’re not so sure about the never-regret it part (cannot wait to get home and whip this thing off already!), we must admit, going bra-less in the office is probably, like, a little too loosey goosey—and recent survey results, published Wednesday in Adweek, confirm it.
Women execs who don’t wear a bra, apparently—as well as those who have “unkempt hair” and wear too-tight clothing—are less worthy of exec-level power than those who are arrogant, wishy-washy, lack in integrity or even make off-color jokes.
The findings of the survey, conducted by the Center for Talent Innovation in late 2012 and looking into the various ways that top execs are judged, are a major downer, but not all that surprising.
Another losing move for female execs, according to the surve
