I love Memorial Day weekend. Gratitude for the military, kick-off of the summer, celebration with the family, gathering of the church . . . what more could you possibly want in any one weekend?
(Except, perhaps, lower gas prices.)
Well. I can’t do much about the mother of all commodities, but I can offer you 3 challenges for Memorial weekend that might just boost your spirits.
1. Replace an appliance. Memorial Day weekend is the time to buy appliances. If you are looking for a new refrigerator or stove, do some shopping in the next couple of days. Sears is a great place to start.
2. Stock up for summer birthdays/barbeques/ball games. Party City is offering 50% off all summer party supplies. If you’re hosting that fantastic barbeque on Monday, head to Party City.
3. Enjoy a Memorial Day activity. Wear patriotic colors. Watch a war movie. Create a patriotic-colored dessert. Visit a memorial. Attend a parade. Make cards for Veterans. Hang a thank-you sign. Play patriotic music.
Just talking about it makes me want to wrap up this post and get started!
