Editor’s Letter: Saying Goodbye to Summer & Hello to Savings


Editor’s Letter: Saying Goodbye to Summer & Hello to Savings | thegoodstuff

To me, August is a time when most of us try to desperately hold onto that feeling of summer. We plan last-minute getaways, sleep in a bit longer on the weekends, and try to spend a bit more time with the kids before they head back to school.

We do this because we know once September rolls around, it’s after-school activities, homework, Halloween, and before we know it…the holidays!

This month we’ve got dozens of ways for you to relish these last days of summer — while you save money and get ready for back to school, of course! Check out some of the fun things we have planned for August:
