It feels so good to be writing the weekend scoop post. The last one was the Labor Day edition and there’s a reason for that. It is the last time I got to be home for the full weekend.
I’ve been on three out of state trips in the past month: Florida, Alaska and Chicago. They were all great for various reasons, but there’s no place like home!
During that time away, I’ve thought a lot about how to provide more value. The inaugural edition of the Bucksome Boomer newsletter will be next month so sign up now for exclusive content and more community.
Around the Web
After a vacation break at Couple Money I was back Friday sharing home remedies you probably have in your kitchen. Last weekend, our family’s experience with a travel sports team was posted at Get Rich Slowly.
Thanks to all the carnivals and round-ups that mentioned this site. Please let me know if I left you off the list and we’ll get you included in the next edition.
