Be an old hand at 'new normals'

Stop waiting for the economy to return to normal. Factors such as the recession and tablet computers led to the disintegration of many of the old economic norms for good -- no matter what happens to the stock market or gross domestic product.

Here are five new normals that affect your finances and how to make them work for you.
