Start off your summer by planning your next great adventure. If you’re looking for hot deals before they’re gone, we suggest using Sky Scanner, a free tool that helps you to get price alerts on all of your top destinations.
Next, avoid the summertime blues and find ways to take it easy. One of the best ways to relax is to put away or mute all electronic devices, and only use them for absolute necessities. After powering off, power up to explore the outdoors, meet with friends for coffee, or go to the farmer’s market.
Finally, we’re all about simple summer pleasures – fresh-squeezed lemonade, an afternoon by our pool, or trying out new summertime grilling recipes. Enjoy these fun little experiences before the time slips away!

With Thanksgiving coming up soon, November inspires us to help others. You don’t have to travel far or spend money to give back to the community around us. The best gift you can give is to share your time, donate unused items, and create memorable moments while helping others.
Share Your Time
Spend a few hours of your time doing something good for someone else, like feeding the hungry. Local soup kitchens are always looking for volunteers to help prepare and serve food, or clean up after a busy meal.
Give Away Unneeded Items
Many of us have clothes we don’t use anymore or household items we don’t need. Don’t let these things go to waste; instead, give them to someone who can use them! The Salvation Army is the perfect place to donate to the less fortunate.
Provide a Memorable Moment
Want to involve your friends and family in the giving? Many places offer activities for a cause. Find an organization nearby and help others while you share memorable times with those you love!
