Good morning! Here at Bankrate, Wednesday mornings mean free breakfast at the office. (Jealous?) If you don't have that kind of pick-me-up, here are five stories to help start your day.

1. You know your friends are just looking to get down at your wedding reception. Give them something worth talking about for years -- but something you're not paying off for years.

2. Does it sometimes kill you to be at work? Quit complaining! Chances are, you probably don't have one of these most dangerous professions in the U.S.

3. Do you have the ruthless ambition to be like the richest woman in the world?

4. When the shopping gets tough, smart consumers whip out one thing. Learn how to save time and basic monthly costs using smartphone apps.

5. Bump, step, add or dance your way to certificate of deposit returns -- whatever works for you.
