Take 5: A Roundup of Reads From Around the Web

1. 5 Fun and Cheap Ways to Entertain Kids

[Moneyning] Some of these suggestions are obvious – visit the park, feed some animals – but one of them I had never heard of before. It’s called geocaching. It involves a GPS-enabled phone and a treasure hunt. Check it out.

2. Friendships and Financial Inequality

3. 30 Signs That You Were Raised by Frugal Parents
