Hi everyone!

I hope everyone had a great week.

I wanted to kick off by telling you all about an exciting announcement we made this week.

We’re hosting a virtual Q&A via Facebook Live titled “How To Make Money When Jobs Are Scarce,” featuring New York Times bestselling author and side hustle expert, Chris Guillebeau and The Penny Hoarder’s entrepreneurship and jobs reporter, Adam Hardy. You can expect an informative dialogue on how to earn additional income during these unprecedented times. The Facebook Live will take place Wednesday, May 27 at 1 p.m. ET. You can register here

We’ve had a number of interesting money questions come up in the community this week. Here’s a couple I’d love to hear your thoughts on:

@Kathleen Jones asked How soon and what method makes money quickly for me to pay off my credit card debt?. Credit card debt is something that puts a damper on a number of people’s financial plans, so if you have any thoughts or advice for this fellow community member, please comment over in the thread. 

@Mark Thomas is a university student and would like to start saving for the future. He asked for advice about saving while on campus. Thinking back to your college experience, what are your best savings tips? Comment over in the thread to help Mark out. 

If you’d like some weekend reading, here are a couple articles from The Penny Hoarder:

Skip the Store: 8 Homemade Cleaners to Keep Your Home Clean and Safe

You’ve never wanted to keep your house clean so badly, but how do you do it? Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cleaning aisle at the store is barren. These simple DIY cleaners will do the trick — and save you money.

How to Use an HSA to Pay Off Medical Debt — Even Bills Sent to Collections

If you’re on a high-deductible insurance plan, you could potentially use your Health Savings Account to pay off old medical debt. Here’s how.

Finally, we released a new survey question this week. We asked: What are your current top financial priorities?. We’d love to hear from you, so we can better support you through the content we are delivering in our Daily newsletter and on ThePennyHoarder.com.

I hope you have a great weekend! 

Till next week,

So far, we are doing okay. Staying home most of the time. Today my husband had follow-up doctor appointment for his cancer. He has been cancer free for 3 and a half years now so that's good. Then we picked up some things I ordered online at Target and the wine store, since we had to pass those places to get to the doctor. The Facebook Q&A sounds great. I hope it helps a lot of people looking for work. 

I hope all at the Penny Hoarder site are well! I love reading all the articles on here.

Nearly all college / university students have a weapon to use against a faulty economy and a shortage of time to earn money. Penny Hoarder actually is a source for these students to turn to by providing a work from home (WFH) job board. The businesses are all vetted, and there are so many options.

The weapon to which I referred is a working knowledge of technology that provides opportunities that their parents could only dream about. These students were born with a laptop in one hand and a smartphone in the other. There are jobs online that can be done 24/7/365, and with a little tech savvy and discipline, the sky's the limit.

I wish you all the very best, because one day I will probably be working for you.





Good morning! Hope we are all doing OK. I'm finally getting into the swing of this work from home thing- but will be glad when schools are out, because teaching is definitely NOT my thing. Spring is hitting NH and the sunshine just makes everything better. Have a good day, ya'll!
