Money Advice

It's all about the Franklins


A young man comes home for spring break and announces to his father, “Dad, I have good news and bad news. The good news is I’ve got enough money to get through the rest of the semester.” 

“That’s great.” Said his dad. “What’s the bad news?”

“The bad news is it’s still in your pockets.”


Ah yes, those money woes. But in this day and age, there are many ways you can make some quick cash and you won’t be breaking your bank’s heart. (Like this sad scene.)

Here are the best ways to make a few quick doubloons:

     1. Selling Knives Door To Door

You set your own hours, you decide where you work and you can decide how much money you want to make. Right after you buy the $500 presentation kit. I mean invest in the $500 presentation kit.

2.  Become a Beauty Representative 

The truth is, you don’t even have to sell the make-up. Just get other representatives to sign up underneath you. And if you sign up people you don’t like, there’s the added bonus of knowing they’ll never want to speak to you again.

3. Invent Something

You don’t even need the product. People love investing in ideas. Like a shower that also makes waffles. We’ll call it the Shawffle. There. I just invented something. Investing in my new idea is pretty easy too. Feel free to contact me about my reasonable rates.

4. Create Facebook

Just look at what it did for Mark Zuckerberg.

So get off your butt and start making that mulah.  In fact, let’s discuss this more. Over coffee. We’ll expense it as a business meeting. Could you spot me the cup o’ joe?

  1. Filtering the frinedly skiesSo maybe you’re tired of that one frined that posts nothing but song lyrics. Maybe it’s the one who is constantly posting political rants. Or perhaps the one who apparently does nothing but play Facebook games all day. Whatever. The point is, you’re sick of it and you want to know what to do about it.Take controlFacebook offers some degree of control as to what you see in your feed from your frineds and page likes. First of all, there’s the blunt instruments obviously, you can unfrined someone, but that’s a bit extreme and antisocial if they still post some things you want to hear about. The other blunt instrument would be the Hide option, as seen here:Why anyone would want to hide our sister site is beyond me, but this hides all updates from this frined or page from showing up in your feed, but you can still see what they have posted by going to their page. A bit imprecise, but simple and it works. Of course, you can undo this at any time.For a bit more control, go to the frined or page in question’s profile page, hover your mouse over the button that says Friends or Subscribed, and click Settings. When you’ve done that, you will see a menu that will allow you to pick what kind of updates you wish to see from this frined uncheck the ones you don’t want to see.Unfortunately, while this offers you control over what type of update you get from frineds, it doesn’t let you filter status updates by content whether it’s about what they had for dinner last night, or that [insert politician here] is the worst thing since the bubonic plague. Fortunately, there’s an option for that.Baby, pleaseBabies and kids are an ever-present topic on Facebook, and it seems there are some people out there that are just tired of hearing about the 347th cute thing Junior did this morning. Well, some computer savvy people who feel that way created the . Install the extension which works with both Chrome and Firefox and add a couple keywords to help it out, and it will happily replace all baby picture and posts with photos of cats (or whatever you want, though cats are the default).The awesome thing about is that since it works on a keyword basis, you can add any keywords you want to its filter list politics, food, type stories, whatever. While not a Facebook-supported filter, it might be worth a shot at blocking some junk without having to block the person.Mister FixerIn addition to, is another keyword-based filtering system, among other features for Facebook. Social Fixer works on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera 11+, and Grease Monkey a few more choices than offers. Its keyword filtering also offers a bit more flexibility and control but it won’t replace the political posts with pictures of cats. Well, for some of you that’s probably okay too.GD Star Ratingloading…
