It’s difficult to imagine learning a new skill while also continuing to pay off student loans every month, but it's a lot more appealing (and feasible) when learning that new skill costs less than $40. The Ultimate Microsoft Excel Bundle is offering six courses to help you get ahead in your current career, get you started in a new one, or simply improve managing your life at home.

Sitting down to evaluate your personal finances doesn’t need to be a head-scratcher. With simple formulas and some formatting knowledge, even your own amateur softball league batting average can be automated into a dynamic tool to filter, display, and analyze with the help of the Advanced Excel Formulas & Functions course.

For the visual learner, there’s the Data Visualization, Charts & Graphs course. Imagine, being able to build a graph that highlights your success at work with cold, hard numbers when you're ready to ask for a promotion. The data modeling and business tools will teach the fundamentals of database design and normalization through the hands-on example of a fictional supermarket chain in Power Query (sounds more fun than learning spreadsheets and data analysis should be).

Data doesn’t have to feel like reading a foreign language. The courses make learning easy by using real-world case studies about San Diego burrito ratings and shark attack records, which also sounds like a recipe for success come trivia night.

Over 60,000 have enrolled in The Ultimate Microsoft Excel Bundle’s 447 lessons across the six included courses. The bundle is currently discounted at $33.99, and with the skills you'll learn, you can use real data to see the true positive impact Excel knowledge can have on your income and performance in any area of your life.

Kodak’s New Cameras Don't Just Take Photos—They Also Print Them

Your Instagram account wishes it had this clout.
Your Instagram account wishes it had this clout.

Snapping a photo and immediately sharing it on social media is definitely convenient, but there’s still something so satisfying about having the printed photo—like you’re actually holding the memory in your hands. Kodak’s new STEP cameras now offer the best of both worlds.

As its name implies, the Kodak STEP Instant Print Digital Camera, available for $70 on Amazon, lets you take a picture and print it out on that very same device. Not only do you get to skip the irksome process of uploading photos to your computer and printing them on your bulky, non-portable printer (or worse yet, having to wait for your local pharmacy to print them for you), but you never need to bother with ink cartridges or toner, either. The Kodak STEP comes with special 2-inch-by-3-inch printing paper inlaid with color crystals that bring your image to life. There’s also an adhesive layer on the back, so you can easily stick your photos to laptop covers, scrapbooks, or whatever else could use a little adornment.

There's a 10-second self-timer, so you don't have to ask strangers to take your group photos.Kodak

For those of you who want to give your photos some added flair, you might like the Kodak STEP Touch, available for $130 from Amazon. It’s similar to the regular Kodak STEP, but the LCD touch screen allows you to edit your photos before you print them; you can also shoot short videos and even share your content straight to social media.

If you want to print photos from your smartphone gallery, there's the Kodak STEP Instant Mobile Photo Printer. This portable $80 printer connects to any iOS or Android device with Bluetooth capabilities and can print whatever photos you send to it.

The Kodak STEP Instant Mobile Photo Printer connects to an app that allows you to add filters and other effects to your photos. Kodak

All three Kodak STEP devices come with some of that magical printer paper, but you can order additional refills, too—a 20-sheet set costs $8 on Amazon.
