Summertime Shopping, Remodeling & Travel

As summer is close to setting in (June 21st) we start to think about summer planning in some form. Whether it’s thinking about a new wardrobe, a family vacation, or some remodeling, we all have some ideas about where to start. For some, it’s all of the above & more. If you’re a parent, new clothes for your children comes up closer to the end of summer when school is about to start. All in all, these are common needs that each of us usually have at some point in time in our lives. The challenge is being able to pay or finance these necessities, especially if they arrive in threes or all at once.

Clothing and its associated cost is something that affects us all, simply because it is required. Time itself moves pretty quickly, and so does women’s fashion. With that comes the challenge of keeping up with trends and looking your best -so you feel your best. It’s amazing how much of an impact seemingly small things we do for ourselves impact us in large ways. There are a number of ways to save on fashion, notably shopping at lower cost retailers for basic accessories like tank tops and T’s & make smart decisions on pricier garments for business, work or fun.

Family vacations are something we each look forward to, especially during the summer months when school is out, pools are open and North Carolina beaches call to us. Depending on where you live in North Carolina, a beach trip can be as simple as a short drive or more than 6 hours in the family cruiser. We need to take vacations for stress relief, exposure and just to get away. North Carolina has some of the best beaches on earth, and we should all take advantage of that. Sometimes, we’re overwhelmed by bills and have to think about staycations. Most people are very surprised at what they learn about their own town or area, simply by paying a trip to your local visitor’s bureau. Public pools, parks and museums offer enrichment and family fun at a reduced cost. These options are often tax-supported, so it’s good to enjoy them as much as possible.

Remodels are something we all think about from time to time, especially if you’re in an older home. As time goes by, technology & style change offering amenities that people couldn’t have dreamt about 50 years ago. Today, for a modest budget you can completely update your kitchen or bathroom by shopping discount building supply warehouses and easy to access listings, like facebook marketplace or craigslist. Just as easily found are professionals that work in these areas on the side, who are willing to do things cheaper on occasion. It only takes a little bit of digging an effort to save big when it comes to activities like these. Always be sure to examine what you’re buying closely and who you employ. A simple Google search can go a long way.
