Take Advantage of Labor Day Weekend Sales PDF Print E-mail

By Melissa Tosetti
 
Labor Day Weekend is the unofficial transition between summer and fall.  Retailers have created a tradition of offering deep discounts to encourage consumers to use their extra day off to shop.  Listed below are just a few of the items you can pick up at some of the best possible prices during the holiday weekend. 

Office & School Supplies
Now is a great time to not only stock up on school supplies for your children, but home office supplies as well.  Just make sure to only purchase what you're going to use.

Home Improvement
Paint and other home improvement products will be on sale this weekend as retailers know we'll have an additional day to get home projects done. 

Automobiles
With 2015 models rolling on to car lots, dealers are anxious to liquidate their older models.

Outdoor Living
Desperate to make room for Halloween and Christmas items, retailers will offer fantastic sales on patio furniture, BBQs and other outdoor living products.

Clothes
Thanks to a competitive market, Labor Day sales are hitting clothing stores a week early!  For a list of stores and their discounts, check out Labor Day Sale Prices Are Here.

Beyond Labor Day
The sales don't necessarily end when Labor Day is over.  Stores are trying to get rid of excess stock in anticipation of their most lucrative season of the year - the fall and winter holidays.  Throughout the month of September, pay attention to your favorite stores sales ads and take advantage of the great discounts.  Just remember, only purchase what you're actually going to use.

Being in Control... PDF Print E-mail

 
Famous Friends & Tiny Houses PDF Print E-mail
By Melissa Tosetti

Last night I was watching TV with Paul when I jumped up from the couch and yelled, "Oh my God, it's Kristen", a friend of mine who I met at an author's conference a few years ago.

Kristen and her husband lost there home during the devastating Colorado wildfire in 2012. She barely got out with her dogs.

Her story of rebuilding is amazing and one that is being shared on the new TV show Tiny House Nation which airs on the Wednesday, August 13th.

Kristen is an amazing person and worth watching for that factor alone. But, I'm also a big fan of the tiny house movement and the mindset of quality over quantity.

I'll be in Indiana on Wednesday for a speaking engagement, but have set my DVR to record the show so I can watch it when I get back.

Here is a clip of Kristen on the show... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=439195649556325
