Happy Monday! Here at Bankrate, we spend our weekends monitoring our bank statements and discussing dividend yields over cocktails.

1. If you're not a finance geek, you probably spent the weekend doing fun things such as going to the movies and to brunch. Did your bank account take a beating? Bankrate's new savings package can help you get back on track.

2. Is it in your "financial plan" to win the lottery? Don't make these mistakes.

3. The Supreme Court will make a ruling on the Affordable Care Act this month. Here's what you need to know.

4. Want solid advice? Get it from someone who's been there. Here's a healthy dose of retirement advice from the experts -- retirees.

5. Finally, this week some borrowers will face higher mortgage premiums, while others can snag reduced fees on refis. Find out more here.
