The 7 ways job hopping can cost you money in the long run

Finance
Job-hopping may be your best bet at a big salary bump, but changing employers can also entail losing a lot of money."Job switchers" saw their wages grow nearly a percentage point more over the past year than "job stayers," according to a recent report from Nomura.

7 Healthy Foods That Cost Under $1

Health
By Beth LiptonIt’s a common complaint: Healthy food is so expensive. While there's no question you can spend a ton on good-for-you fare, the fact is, there are plenty of ways to save a bundle and still eat like a champ. Here are seven delicious and nutritious foods you can enjoy for less than a buck per serving.Peanut butterGold ol’ PB has taken a backseat in recent years to more glamorous spreads made from almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, and more.
