Still a few days away from the first day of summer, but here in the south summer has arrived! Today the temperature is supposed to reach 100 degrees, and it feels much hotter with humidity. I’m always amused when people say, “I can’t wait for summer!” I usually say, “I can’t wait for summer to be over!” I’m more of a fall/winter kind of guy. I like cool weather, rainy days and the occasional snow. I guess I should have been born in the Pacific northwest. Well, enough griping about the heat…on with the roundup.
Planning for the Long Haul. I am always inspired by forward-thinking financial plans, especially ones like this one from the Simple Dollar. It was a great reminder that my wife and I should sit down and update our own plans.
Vacation Savings Account. Nothing beats a debt-free vacation, and a great way to set that up is to start saving early. We recently created a subaccount at ING for this very purpose. (@Single Guy Money)
