Welcome to money Monday, where I share my highs and lows from a week of money management.
Wise Money Management
This week I saved money by bringing a cooler of food to our local airshow. Arctic Thunder takes Anchorage, Alaska by storm every two years.
Our family, along with 250,000 of our best friends (kidding) trekked to the local air force base to watch an AMAZING show.
Two years ago we made the mistake of going late (it took over two hours to inch our way on base). And, we didn’t bring food. This meant standing in line for 30 minutes to (desperately) use the bathrooms, and another 30 minutes (and over fifty bucks) in line to get food for our little horde.
This time I wizened up. Bringing a cooler meant that we had lunch on our terms. For much cheaper.
Nothing is coming to mind. I’m sure I messed up somewhere, but it’s 80 degrees here today and I’m melting. Go ahead and laugh. My brain doesn’t work well in the heat. Thus… the Alaskan residency.
How did you manage money wisely this week?
