  1. Good tips on this roundtable discussion on how not to waste money during summer. Most people don’t think of this is and splurge during summer.

    • To a certain degree I think a lot of people turn off their budgeting skills during the summer. They just want to relax, go on vacation and not have to think about budgeting, saving or frugality. Unfortunately that means that they’re leaving a lot of money on the table!
