Teaching you to embrace today while making yourself a millionaire!

I wish I would have understood how easy it is to become a millionaire by starting to save small amounts of money when I was younger...

I feel compelled to share the simple concepts you can apply today....

Tuesday's Tips

Good afternoon everybody! Today's tips are inspired by a conversation between my neighbor and I that took place yesterday evening.

1) Throw an awesome end of summer party. This doesn't necessarily mean you need to invite tons of people, but celebrate all the great weather we've had before it starts to turn cold. If you've got a pool, swim as often as possible because it'll be time to drain them in the coming weeks. And just because you're throwing a party doesn't mean it has to be expensive. Ask guests to bring their favorite side dish or dessert. Go shopping at a bulk food store where you can buy 20lbs. of potato salad for $5 (an exaggeration, but not too far off...). Things like buns, burgers, hot dogs, and chips are bound to be on sale soon because Labor Day is coming up and each store wants as many party shoppers as possible. So check around and find the best deals, invite over some friends, and enjoy the weather and fun with one last summer hoorah!

2) Take the kids on a back to school outing. This is a clever way of celebrating the end of summer, but to call it something different. Instead of partying the end of something, why not party the beginning of something else? Younger kids can be grumpy about having to start school again, especially when they just spent the last 3 months playing in the sun. So lighten the mood by going out to an amusement park, hitting up the beach one last time, or even going out to eat and to the movies all in the name of a new school year. By celebrating this occasion you might not only have fun with the family, but you might even get the kids excited about starting school again. That's a win-win in my book!

Please post any comments about some great end of summer/beginning of school year ideas or traditions. It's all about spreading the knowledge and fun.

I'm on a 168 hour break, so until then Stay Tuned...
