Take 5: A Roundup of Reads From Around the Web

1. 19 Money-saving uses for mouthwash

[Wise Bread] I love this website because it comes up with some completely off-the-wall – but logical – ways to save money. Like using mouthwash to cure nail fungus and even as a deodorant.

2. A postmortem: some thoughts on improving the process of filing taxes

[The Simple Dollar] What I like about this blog is that it sometimes offers advice not only to us but to the government. Here are five good tips for the IRS – so they can help us taxpayers have an easier time of it.

3. Do prepaid cards help you establish credit?

[Dough Roller] The answer to this question is mostly “no,” but there are some interesting loopholes.

4. 4 types of outdoor barbecue grills – which should you buy this summer?

[Money Crashers] Gas? Charcoal? Electric? Here’s a nice, quick, fact-packed rundown of the pros and cons of each. We did a TV news story on this back in 2008. Check it out: Grills Gone Wild.

5. Customer catches Best Buy breaking law, gets banned from store

[The Consumerist] I’m usually a patient man, but this personal tale just made me mad as hell. First, Best Buy gets caught breaking the law; then, it bans the woman who reported them. Awful.
