Oh yes, it is that time again! The nights are cooling down, the competitive spirits are revived, and the football parties have begun.

What To Buy Over Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day is right around the corner. Unlike most of our holidays, Labor Day doesn't have an immediate consumer aspect to it. It's rather wonderful for this reason; it's one of the only holidays where many Americans are off of work and can spend their time just hanging out. There are no presents to buy or traditions to prepare for that day. In fact, there really aren't even decorations or symbols to decorate for this holiday. Because of all of this, many people overlook that some of the best shopping deals take place over this 3-day weekend. The funny part is, most stores are open all day on Labor Day, and are flooded with customers. So should you find yourself near a mall or idly shopping online, keep an eye out for some deep discounts. Here's what to buy over Labor Day weekend:

I am not consistent with many things (cleaning, healthy eating, etc) and beauty routines are no different. I tend to get excited about something and try it for a few days, possibly a whole week and then I forget all about it and return to my lazy ways. I just can't commit to routines that take longer than 10 minutes. Beauty products are no different. I see adorable younger girls barefaced, their hair tucked messily on top of their heads and dressed in work-out gear. It reads "cute and not trying to hard." There is a certain, ahem, age where this type of behavior no longer works.  What looks relaxed and natural on youth looks more like "I'm tired and I just didn't try" for me these days.

7 Stores For Budget Home Decor (That Doesn’t Look Cheap!)

I can remember when a certain store first started and offered really fabulous finds for clothing and home goods, with shockingly reasonable prices tags. As is so often the case, the store became incredibly popular (ahem- a staple for most families really) and the prices have continued to climb. While I still find myself shopping there, the home decor section is getting more and more expensive. That means I've had to search for new stores and retailers that can give me the same satisfaction. Now, let's be clear: I want cute (and sometimes trendy) home items that function, look great, and don't cost me a fortune, but I do NOT want things that look cheap. Thankfully, I've found lost of other options that have pleasantly surprised me with their home decorating options and overall prices. Here are 7 stores for budget home decor (that doesn't look cheap!)

5 Frugal Trips To Take This Weekend

I recently ran across this older blog series from the NY Times, The Frugal Traveler and could not stop reading the multiple weekends the writer experienced on a mere $100.  Granted, this writer is traveling all over the world in fascinating cities, where sightseeing alone can qualify as something to do. It all sounds terribly exciting! However, it got me thinking about planning a next-to-nothing getaway for my own family.

After a little digging, I found some excellent opportunities and thought I'd share them. Here are 5 frugal trips to take this weekend, should you also be craving a little excitement on a small budget.
