It seems like everyone is running at warp speed this summer. And I don’t know about you, but I could use a vacation. I’d like to help finance your summer fun through the Summer Lovin’ Giveaway. One lucky winner will have an extra $480 to spend this summer. You can enter at the bottom of the post.
Since summer vacation is on my mind, I wanted to share a fun infographic I stumbled upon. It makes me sad to see so Americans don’t use all of their allotted vacation days, even though I’ve been guilty of doing that too. But we earned them. We need the break!
Here are a few of my favorite reads from the past week. Enjoy!
Matt at Mom and Dad Money encouraged us to Stop Focusing on the Negatives and Start Enjoying Life. I couldn’t agree more.
John over at Frugal Rules counseled those Paying Off Debt while Dealing with Debt Fatigue. He has some stellar tips to keep you in the game.
If you’ve been on the fence on whether to purchase life insurance, Grayson at Debt Roundup has two words for you: Zombie Apocalypse!
Vanessa at Cash Cow Couple shared 5 Reasons Why I Love Frugality. I appreciate how Vanessa and Jacob choose to live an ultra-frugal lifestyle and always seem to have a good time.
Brian at Luke 1428 asked What to Influence Others? Lead by Example. So true. Words alone are not enough. But demonstrating the right behavior—now that carries weight.
And finally, I have to leave you with a guest post from my friend Tanya. Almost 7 years ago, I asked her to move out to LA and work with me. She did me the great honor of saying yes (the fact she lived in MN probably had something to do with her excitement). She designed my website, organized the Financial Literacy Awareness Carnival and helps The Heavy Purse run smoothly. This week she was over at Tackling Our Debt sharing her Caramel Brownies and Best Grocery Shopping Tip. Check it out, unless you’re on a diet. 🙂
