It’s hard to believe we’re nearly half-way through 2022! As kids and grandkids finish the school year, it’s surprising how the days seem to get busier in addition to getting longer.
As the summer rolls in, so do the invitations for high school graduations! If you have a college-bound student in your life, use the summer months to help them work on a spending budget for college. It’s an opportunity for them to take an important step towards learning how to manage their money and develop good spending habits that will carry them throughout their life.
Talk openly with them regarding all of the college expenses they should anticipate, who will pay for what, and whether the decision to open a credit card to cover any spending gaps would be a beneficial or destructive financial decision for them. Communication is everything!
Don’t forget, Father’s Day is June 19th! For some gift ideas, check out this great idea list. Whether you’re attempting to tug on some heart strings with something sentimental or poke at a funny bone with humor, there are gift ideas to fulfill every wish and fit every budget. Some even offer free, two-day shipping!
For anyone itching to try some delicious grub, June 24th is National Food Truck Day! Food truck owners make our communities more delicious and more diverse. As small business owners, they drive (pun intended) job creation, increased tax base, product diversity and more. Check one out if you can! Use this food truck finder website to find all of the food trucks nearby.
Wishing you a wonderful month, full of summer celebrations and great eats!
