Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EST Nov 25, 2018 Looking for a clever way to give money – something beyond shoving cash in an envelope – remains a fun challenge during the holidays. I was thrilled, for example, when I spotted some clear plastic ornaments in a dollar store. My brainstorm: Use some shredded currency that I had sitting around the house as a base – or maybe use some sparkly tinsel – and put some real cash into the ornament. What a cool way to give anywhere from $5 to $50. Many grandparents, as well as aunts and uncles, may be looking for money-wise gifts, such as helping to pay down student loans or even figuring out new ways to cut loose from our money-obsessed culture. Here's a look at three on-the-money ideas: 1. Put cash into a 529 plan Frankly, you can take the $30 that you could spend at a Black Friday sale for a "Madden NFL 19" video game and put it into a 529 plan for college.

Perhaps there was an element of inevitability about Aleksandar Mitrovic topping the Premier League goalscoring charts going into the first international break. Not because he’s a dead cert for a goal but for the tendency of things to come back and bite Newcastle United firmly on the behind. Questions were always going to be asked of Rafa Benitez’s decision to sell the 24-year-old to Fulham, especially if United’s struggles in front of goal continued and Mitrovic hit the ground running.
