Memorial Day Weekend is here! Yay! And, like I mentioned this week, I’m stoked. I can’t wait for the summer to get here. Hopefully, the weather will be nice enough that we can either find a beach or a pool to hit this weekend. I’m sure many of you will be doing the same.
So, there have been a few changes here over the past couple of months. We were glad to welcome our new staff writer Kayla to the team. If you haven’t check out any of her work yet, you should! We are also going to be unveiling a new logo and website design sometime in the near future. We hope you like that too!
Anyway, here are a few of the great personal finance articles I’ve found around the last couple of weeks. I think you’ll enjoy them too.
