A look at five interesting personal finance posts from other bloggers around the web. This week: plastic surgery for your career, cleaning your cleaning machines, arsenic in your apple juice, and whether you overpaid for college.

1. Would you get plastic surgery to improve your career?

[Free Money Finance] Sometimes the reader comments on a personal finance post are better than the post itself. In this case, FMF’s readers have some funny replies to this question – from both men and women.

2. Paying rent for your junk? How to quit the self-storage habit

[Mint] I’ve never understood paying money to store stuff of limited value so you can one day sell it to make money. And apparently, I’m not the only one. “Saying no to storage means having to address your clutter,” Mint says. Amen to that.

3. How to clean your dishwasher

[Wise Bread] Like many folks, I’m guilty of not cleaning the machines that do my cleaning. Here’s a handy list of how to clean your dishwasher – and extend its life.

4. There’s arsenic in the apple juice

[The Consumerist] Here’s a scary thought: “A sample of Mott’s Apple Juice contained 55 parts per billion of arsenic, exceeding the EPA tolerance level of 10 parts per billion.” Do we need to start telling our kids to drink soda because it’s healthier?

5. College graduate vs. high school grad: Who’ll end up with more?

[The Digerati Life] Like many provocative questions, this one has no easy answer – it depends on what major you pursue, where you live, and a host of other factors. What’s fascinating about this by-the-numbers breakdown, though, is that college is getting so expensive that the answer is no longer a definitive “College!”
