I also have to give a very special shout-out to Average Joe (who is so NOT average) for interviewing me in his inaugural Stacking Benjamins podcast. Joe and I chatted about 5 Summer Money Activities for Kids, so download the podcast and listen to it during your commute, workout or whenever you can.
A Few Good Reads
Jen from The Happy Homeowner asked a doozy of a question, To Marry for Money: Gold Digger or Financial Genius? My husband better say he married a financial genius.
Laurie from The Frugal Farmer reminded people Why You Should Choose to Start Your Journey to Debt-Free Today. Agreed. There is no better day to start eliminating your debt than today.
John at Frugal Rules asked Did Your College Degree Come with a Course on Student Loans? No, but it should. The good news more and more students are asking questions and not just signing on the dotted line.
Sicorra over at Tackling Our Debt shared 10 Best Money Tips for New Graduates. Getting their finances in order is one of the best graduation presents anyone can give himself.

Mr. CBB at Canadian Budget Binder encountered a Young Cookie Selling Entrepreneur at a garage sale. Barely old enough to count change, but smart enough to know to save her money for something she truly wanted.
And for those looking for something to do this weekend, Mackenzie at The Random Path has a fun, Frugal, Jewelry Display project for all you ladies who suffer from tangled jewelry.
Well, that’s a wrap for this week. I wish everyone a safe and fun Memorial weekend!
