Career, Savings and Spending Tips and Lifestyle Topics

Molly Triffin worked at Cosmopolitan for eight years, where, as features director, she wrote about everything from wrongfully convicted prisoners to dangerous plastic surgery trends, and also supervised special projects and events. She had a glass-walled office overlooking the Hudson River, spent way too much money on way too tall shoes, and went out nearly every night of the week to places teeming with nerdy glasses and PBR.

Two years ago, her life transformed when she moved with her ski addict husband to Stowe, Vermont. Now, considering she writes freelance pieces from a pine-paneled office overlooking Mt. Mansfield, stops for every single pedestrian, and knows the best way to stack wood (criss-crossed with a few inches of space between each log), she’s nearly adjusted to life in the land of golden retrievers and Subarus…of which she has both.
