30 Awesome Things to Do in RetirementCollege

A look at five interesting personal finance posts from other bloggers around the Web. This week: eating quick and healthy, gardening with diapers, advertising your rental, getting your teen a bank account, and laughing at Amazon.

1. 15 healthy and cheap 5-minute dinners

[Wise Bread] I admit I’m biased, but I don’t consider a veggie chili dog or miso soup to be “dinner.” Still, this is a great list of quick and filling food that won’t make you fat and leave you feeling guilty. (“Peanut Lime Coleslaw With Grilled Pineapple Steaks”? Now we’re talking…)

2. 25-plus clever ideas gardeners won’t want to miss

[Tipnut] Not sure whether this is clever or just odd: “Line the bottom of baskets and pots with a disposable diaper to help retain soil moisture.” There are 24 more where that came from.

3. The best places to list and advertise your rental property (some free!)

[PT Money] Money Talks News has written before about The Best (and Worst) Apartment Rental Sites, but that was from a renter’s perspective. What if you want to be a landlord? Here’s a great list from the opposite perspective.

4. Reader question: how to find a good checking account for a teen

[Doughroller] Banks are difficult enough to navigate for adults. So how do you get your teenager set up properly? Here’s a good start.

5. Amazon makes sure Sharpie shipment arrives very, very, very safely

[The Consumerist] If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these half-dozen are worth a good laugh. Don’t want to ruin it for you, but it involves a big box, lots of plastic, and one Sharpie.
