Weekly Roundup: $500 giveaway, planning for the future and financial advice

by Kristina on July 12, 2013 · 4 comments

Good morning Dinks and happy Friday. I hope you all had a nice 4th of July weekend last week.  Nick and I had a great vacation in Niagara Falls and if you read Dinks Finance earlier this week you know all about it.

How did you spend the 4th of July?  Some couples spend all of their vacations the same way – with family and friends.  But the 4th of July isn’t like any old holiday…it’s full of good barbeque food and lots and lots of fireworks.  If you are lucky there may also be a parade involved in your long weekend.

I also love the 4th of July weekend (or July 1st in Canada) because in my opinion it officially kicks of the summer season of warm weather, vacations and lots and lots of fun.

What is your favourite thing to do in the summer?

Enjoy these posts and giveaways from our friends.  Have a great weekend Dinks.

Thanks for the link to the giveaway. We didn’t do anything for the 4th and it was awesome!

I love heading to the cabin during the summer. There’s just something about sitting on a boat on the lake with a cold beer in hand. Tough to beat, in my opinion.

@Grayson – sometimes doing nothing is just as good.

@Jake – honestly I am not a huge fan of the woods because it combines by two biggest fears…total silence and total darkness. However the picture perfect image of a cabin on the lake seems really nice.

Thanks for reading.

Firstly we had a lovely seafood buffet on the 4th of July…it was stunning!

I loved the article about modest money and planning for the future. I see so many people who don’t have much money, and because of this, don’t plan. This is sad because with some planning they could take control of their finances and live a comfortable life.

So thanks for touching on this topic.
