Labor Day Weekend, I am SO HAPPY to see you! It’s been a long, exciting and eventful summer. To cap it off, I plan on roasting giant marshmallows around a bonfire tonight, rain or shine. Labor Day Weekend is a great excuse to enjoy yourself and (perhaps) bend your budget – so long as you stay in your “safe” zone.
Set a budget in advance. This afternoon, before you switch to full-on weekend mode, take a close look at your budget. Decide how much money you can comfortably spend. The key word here is COMFORT! Don’t push your financial limits to the point where bill-paying ability is compromised. And certainly don’t put “fun” money on your emergencies-only credit card!
