If you want to save money on Prime Day, Amazon will be offering plenty of deals. So many, in fact, that you might end up spending more than you planned.
Whether you finally landed that big client or you finally won the lottery, an influx of surprise cash is always a good thing. And it also requires some planning. Here are my thoughts on the best ways to allocate that extra money, in order:
Spirit Airlines’ Big Front Seats, with their 36" pitch and 18.5" width, are not quite as large as the 38" pitch, 20" width seats you’re likely to get in first class on a major airline. However, they’re a lot bigger than the seats you’ll get in economy—and in some cases, a lot more affordable.
Most of us have very little unscheduled time in our days—and it’s hard to keep that time unscheduled. For every precious free evening we hope to put towards finally reading that book, cleaning that closet, or simply sitting on the couch doing nothing, there’s a friend, parent, partner, child, or colleague who would…
If you’ve finally gotten that job (or that raise), it can be easy to assume that you don’t have to worry about money anymore. You’ve got that steady paycheck, after all.
