Side hustles are a topic of frequent discussion at Young Adult Money. But we just can’t help ourselves.

There’s a lot of credit cards options. A Lot of options. And there’s always new ones coming out. As a consumer I like the variety of options. It’s not like other products or services where there is only a handful of options – or less – to choose from (I’m looking at you cable and satellite TV).

A weekend getaway can be a great way to step away from the fast pace of life. Whether your ideal getaway includes secluding yourself in a cabin in the woods, laying in the Sun on a beach, or exploring a city you’ve never been to, a weekend getaway can give you a quick reprise from the daily grind.

The temptation to overspend on non-necessities may always be constant year-round. For some of us, it’s harder to save money during the summer because there’s so much fun stuff to do. No one wants to be cooped up in the house all day when you can travel, go to beaches and BBQs, and attend festivals. Spending on splurges like restaurant food, pricey hobbies, events, vacations, etc. can really interfere with your budget ...
