Making cents of it all: Learn to navigate financial choices during challenging times, including transferring non-titled assets, how Tandas are used as a savings strategy in some cultures, preparing finances for a potential disaster, organizing important papers, elder family financial exploitation, and saving money while grocery shopping or meal planning.
