Are those new fees the last straw? Ready to break up with your bank? We learn some tips from the Consumers Union on how to make that transition as pain-free as possible. But reporter Sally Herships reveals that those “free” checking accounts may never have been free to begin with. Humorist Kristina Wong wonders why more Americans aren’t taking to the street, considering there are many reasons for citizens to get angry (bank fees included).

Some women who were victims of domestic violence are learning how to manage their money, as a means to protect themselves from future abuse. We take a peek into personal finance columinst Liz Weston’s wallet (hint: It is filled with money-saving tools). ABd Tess dives into the non-traditional media world: Financial blogging.

  • Vision One – RoyksoppBuy
  • Flim – The Bad PlusBuy
  • Dirty Blonde – The Bad PlusBuy
  • Oink Oink Mambo – Chuy ReyesBuy
