You know it’s summer here in Texas when a quick walk around the block with your dog leaves you looking like you just ran a 5k. Besides dripping in sweat, the other thing I do often in the summer is travel. In this week’s roundup of my favorite personal finance blog posts, I’m featuring posts all about saving money on summer travel and making the most of your hard-earned vacations!
Most people are preparing to spend this weekend celebrating Easter or Passover. But if you’re not the religious type, let me inform you about a fun little holiday today called New Beer’s Eve.
On April 7, 1933, as the Prohibition was winding down, Americans were finally able to legally buy beer again. On the eve of April 6, according to CNN, people danced in the streets and lined outside brewery doors “in anticipation of the return of legal beer that actually had some alcohol in it.”
Whatever holiday you choose to celebrate this weekend, cheers! And be sure to read on for my roundup of my 10 favorite personal finance blog posts from the past week.
My wedding was just over a month ago, and on that day, I truly felt like a princess. People waited on me hand and foot. Everyone constantly asked me if I needed or wanted anything. It was kind of a let down when I realized I was only getting special treatment for one day.
I cannot even fathom what life is like for Kate Middleton, the gorgeous commoner who is marrying the United Kingdom’s Prince William in Westminster Abbey today. She will be a real princess every day. Ah, a girl’s dream. Though it comes with the heavy responsibility of hosting endless social events, completing loads of charity work, acting as a diplomat, being a fashion icon, and most importantly, bearing heirs to the throne. She will be in the spotlight and on the pages of infamous British tabloids for the rest of her life, being scrutinized for any potential mishap (or bit of cellulite). Is it worth it to have everything when you’re constantly in the spotlight?
