Take 5: A Roundup of Reads From Around the Web

1. Work with the dead: strange ways to make money

[Saving Advice] Talk about morbid curiosity. I couldn’t help but click on this description of jobs ranging from embalmer to cemetery landscaper. The best job? I’d consider a career as a “headstone artist.”

2. 6 more creative uses for basil

[Tip Hero] The first thing I thought when I saw this headline: There were six other creative uses for basil? Turns out the herb can be added to sandwiches, drinks, and even infuser oil. Who knew?

3. 25 frugal food changes you can make today

[Wise Bread] I already know how to grind my own coffee and make my own salad dressing, but I didn’t know how to bake my own tortilla chips and mix my own granola. Now I do.

4. Outdated money lessons you shouldn’t teach your kids

[MoneyNing] Just like some children’s movies are entertaining to adults, some money advice for children is suitable for adults. My favorite outdated advice: “Always pay with cash.” (Have you seen the rewards available on our credit card page?)

5. Top 10 places to retire

[Consumer Affairs] I live in South Florida – also known as God’s Waiting Room – so I was surprised when my area didn’t even make the list. Among the surprises: Cheyenne, Wyo., and Midland, Texas.
