I hope everyone had a great 4th of July! When holidays fall mid-week, it makes it even harder to go back to work, especially on a Friday. I can’t be the only one who feels this way, right? Even though it was a short week, there was still plenty of activity at The Heavy Purse, including my first giveaway.
Thanks to DC at www.YoungAdultMoney.com and Sicorra at www.TacklingOurDebt.com for putting together the Summer Lovin’ Giveaway. One lucky person will win a $480 Cash Prize and enjoy some summer fun on us. The giveaway is open worldwide, and you can enter at the bottom of the post. Good luck!
A Few Good Reads
Greg from ThriftGenuity had a great guest post at Mom and Dad Money on Questions to Consider when Choosing a Health Plan for Your Family. Greg works in the health insurance industry and shared some great insight with us.
Mario over at Debt Blag shared his July Networth and June Goal Updates. Mario was almost $500k in debt (consumer, student and mortgage) and has been doing a great job eliminating it. His new impulse savings plan is great way to see how much money you spend on spur of the moment purchases and redirect the money towards paying off your debt.
Mr. CBB at Canadian Budget Binder shared The Top 5 Things I Love about Canada in honor of Canada Day. It was great tribute to the country he now calls home.
Joe at Stacking Benjamins was getting sentimental in Bats, Protestors and My Son’s Orientation. Seeing all those young people getting ready to pursue their own dreams at college made Joe ask himself, “What magic am I creating?” I can’t wait to see what you do next.
Jeremy at Modest Money asked Is Being a Jerk Blogger Really Worth it? I say no. We don’t all have to think and feel the same but being respectful is what truly gets you heard.
And since we’re heading into the weekend, I wanted to end with my good friend Kerry over at Breadwinning Mama who shares 10 Blissful Summer Moments for Kids Then and Now. Some great ways to keep your kids busy this summer and create great memories.
Before you leave—don’t forget to enter the Summer Lovin’ Giveaway for your chance to win $480! Good luck!
GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
