Summer Savings Series – Win a $100 Amazon Gift Card!
Summer is upon us and with the higher temperatures are coming higher prices for just about everything under the sun. Gas costs just went up, the summer vacation is costing an arm and a leg (maybe two!), and you may need to take out that second mortgage just to send your kids to summer camp.
Money Life Network realizes that times are tough this year and people are cutting back to make ends meet. With that in mind we decided to do a group writing project this month at our member blogs looking at ways that you can save money this summer. We”re calling it the “Summer Savings Series“!

Our blogs cover a lot of varied ground when it comes to personal finance, and this series will probably be no different. Some of the topics we may touch on include:
- Ways to save on travel
- Frugal activities for the kids
- Ways to save on your auto expenses
- Ways to save on groceries
- How to get motivated to save
Over the next 3 weeks each member of the Money Life Network will write 1 post per week about how to save this summer on their blog. Keep checking the group site because we”ll have a new article every day Monday-Friday for the duration of the series. We start the series on Monday June 9th, and we”ll wrap up with a roundup post on June 30th. So subscribe to our feed, bookmark this page and stay tuned for tons of great ways to save this summer!
