Summer Vacations. What Did You Do?

Summer vacations are a wonderful thing. Did you do something over the summer? Please comment below. We’d like to know.

Summer is such a fantastic time of the year. The days are longer and warmer. More people are outside. Flowers are blooming. Vegetables are growing. Kids, teens, and college students are out of school. The sun is shining, hopefully more often than not.

Summer vacations can be very extravagant: A first class trip to Disney World or a trip to an exotic country. Exploring a quiet beach or catching a big wave with a surf board.

How about setting up a chair in the back yard with a 6 pack of soda or beer? A week off from work and relaxing in the sun? That sounds pretty awesome to me. Put on some music. Invite some friends over. Instant good time!


No matter what you do, the important thing is to enjoy it. Vacation time is a scarce luxury. Make the most of your time. Go where you want to go and do what you want to do. Dream vacations can wait. Fun vacations can happen now!

CashCrate can help. A lot of members have shared their past vacation stories with us, and how their CashCrate Money made it more fun. Maybe it paid for a night in a hotel room, a nice meal out, a souvenir, a tank of gas, or another essential.

We hope you had a fun vacation and enjoyed your summer. This time of the year goes by so fast!

College students often need a lot … read more
