The Guardian's Money IQ test

Are you paid what you're worth? This little IQ test, asks your salary (in pounds) and calculates whether you are overpaid or underpaid with respect to your intelligence.

Costly habits.

Costly habits. Are you broke again? Don't know where your money is going? Take a look at what you're spending your money on.

If you don't believe it, try out this expense calculator and see how much money you could be spending on something else!

Finances can be a sticky issue in relationships

Finances can be a sticky issue in relationships
Can you pay my bills?
Can you pay my telephone bills?
Can you pay my automo-bills?
If you did then maybe we could chill
I don't think you do
So, you and me are through

Can I get paid to write stuff like this? And just how would one get started?
