The Best of Everything

1.      BANK ACCOUNT FOR KIDS-Young Americans Bank in Denver (yacenter.org) is the only kids-only bank in the USA.  It offers savings and checking accounts, credit cards and loans.  It takes just $5 to open a savings account (an adult must cosign).  ATM cards are free.  How cool is that?

2. Money As you Grow is a website brought to you by the President's Advisory Council on Financial Capability. It's designed to help your kids learn crucial financial lessons, from age 3 to age 18+. On the site, you can choose the appropriate age group and you'll find important lessons with corresponding activities. Kids can work on the activities so that they can become more financially wise while having fun at the same time! moneyasyougrow.org

3.  VACATION RENTAL SITE: Get more space and amenities than a hotel room provides for about the same cost.  www.homeaway.com offers the biggest selection.

4.  CONSUMER BLOG-Consumerist.com is the always useful, frequently fun and deliciously snarky place to get the latest on a wide array of consumer issues.

5. BLOG FOR CUTTING COSTS: www.wisebread.com isn't about being cheap, it's about "living large on a small budget" and being smart with your money.

6. LEGAL ADVICE ONLINE: For a long time, www.nolo.com has been a go-to source for a wide range of practical advice and legal information-most advice is at no cost.
