Features

  • Nostalgic? Spinning tops are cool again
    Oh, nostalgic revivalism. We have so much to thank you for. The fashion: big glasses, mustaches, high-waisted pants. The trinkets: typewriters, record players, single-speed bicycles.
  • Saving energy at 3 area churches
    Many pastors urge their flocks to look to the heavens for spiritual power. Now, three Fort Wayne congregations will also look there for electrical power.
  • Sleight of hair
    OK, let's say it right away to get it out in the open: Comb-over. You know the reference, of course.

Track kids’ spending

Hey, kids: It’s cool to count your pennies

Teaching children to monitor their spending habits is a valuable lesson that can stay with them for the rest of their lives. So while it may have become less common for children to see their parents entering receipts into their checkbooks, that doesn’t mean there aren’t teachable moments. Virtual Piggy lets parents set spending limits and saving goals for children while also using brand partnerships to give children a chance to buy products without needing to get their parents’ credit card. The site and app are the brainchild of software engineer (and mom) Jo Webber, who worked with regulators to learn how best to manage privacy on the site.

Free, but requires registration, for iOS and Android devices.
