The U.S. economy is struggling to achieve pre-recession levels of growth. This places citizens in a difficult position, as while they may have diminished disposable income, their spending is crucial to driving economic growth throughout 2013 and beyond. With this in mind, it is important that individuals commit to responsible spending, and look to cut the cost of everyday expenditures without eliminating purchases and compromising quality of life.

Playoff Perks For Pro Athletes
Professional athletes are often criticized for making too much money to play a "game." Some superstar athletes, such as the NFL's Peyton Manning, are paid almost $1 million per game to lead their teams to the playoffs, where they have the chance to compete for a championship. But for all the money that team owners invest in top-flight talent just to make the playoffs, players receive relatively little compensation for playoff games.

How The 2014 Obama Budget Could Affect Your Finances
At 244 pages, not counting supporting documentation, the 2014 Federal budget isn’t exactly light reading (by the way, those supporting documents add 2,176 pages). For that reason, let’s forgive the predominance of citizens who have never read the document. But, make no mistake - it’s full of “suggestions” that will keep both parties complaining for months.

How To Profit From Risk
Live off the interest, and never touch the principal. Today's retirees had this drummed into their minds long ago. It is, after all, a laudable goal, and something every retiree and person approaching retirement should aspire to. But how in the heck are we supposed to do it? A friend recently told me he rolled over a five-year CD paying 1.2% because his banker said it was a good rate. Ah! I nearly fell out of my chair when I heard that. A 1.2% interest rate won't even keep up with inflation, let alone allow someone to live off the interest. He may think he's investing conservatively by keeping his money in FDIC-insured CDs, but his buying power is quickly slipping through his fingers.

How Spring Cleaning Can Make You Money
Spring is historically a time when people consider clearing their homes of unwanted clutter, and the practice of spring cleaning is something that is prevalent within many different cultures and religions. This can also create a great deal of additional household waste, of which Americans produced approximately 250 million tons during 2010. Figures released by the Environmental Protection Agency also reported that an estimated 54% of this waste was sent to landfill sites, which reinforces the need for homeowners to dispose of their goods responsibly and in a way that minimizes waste while maximizing their potential profit.

The Most Expensive Sports Trophies
Football coach Vince Lombardi is alleged to have said "winning isn't the important thing; it's the only thing." Indeed, there is an enormous emotional high that comes with winning a championship at a sport's highest level, but the amount of money sports leagues spend to reward their champions is nearly as large. Here's a breakdown of the cost of those rewards, at least in dollars and cents. (Keep the kids out of your hair and wallet by saving on summer camps, sports leagues, day trips and more.

How To Buy Annuities (And When Not To)
Annuities are more complicated than toy assembly instructions on Christmas Eve. How do we really know if we are getting a good deal? And are they ever a good investment? An honest salesman would say, “That depends on when you die.” If you outlive your actuarial mortality rate, the answer is probably yes. The only way you can know is when you die, and at that point you won't care.

The Economics Of Stay-At-Home Moms
There is much discussion surrounding what it costs to raise a child, but a large portion of the expense can be reduced by having a mom stay at home with her kids. This often thankless job doesn't pay in the same way as a traditional occupation, however, leaving the matriarch of the family to garner her wages in snuggles and a somewhat delayed feeling of accomplishment. In honor of Mother's Day, we attempt to answer the question of "what would these homebound heroes make if they were paid in dollars?"
