Fourth of July is right around the corner. What are your family's plans for this festive day? For starters, our family will be hosting our very first Fourth of July bash. We are going to implement some of the ideas that can be found in my July Digest, which will be hitting the store later next week--just in time for the Fourth!

Hopefully this newsletter will give you ideas to have your very own frugal Fourth. If you don't have the money to purchase fireworks, find a local park or event that has fireworks you can watch for free. Take your lawn chairs, a picnic supper, and just have a wonderful, fun-filled, family event.

You can also view last year's Fourth of July newsletter HERE.

How will you make room in your budget?

Molly's usual focus is on ways to spend less (you'll find that too), but in this Digest, Molly takes a look at ways to earn more money--from home! Maybe this issue should be called Molly's Money-Making Digest . . .

Join Molly for this month's special feature:
Home Sweet Home (Business)

Perhaps you will discover your work-at-home dream job!

Which luxury would you like to afford? Or maybe you don't consider luxuries because you are struggling to simply make ends meet. You know, adding to your budget with a "home business" doesn't need to be a major undertaking. It could be as simple as starting a resale business tied into your enjoyment of frequenting yard sales.

What are some highlights of this issue?
  • Entrepreneur interviews--Young and old alike share pros, cons, struggles, triumphs, challenges, and benefits of running a business from home.
  • New planning forms--Perfect to aid you in brainstorming and organizing your home business.
  • Summertime salads--Your family will stay cool and satisfied with these fresh ideas and recipes!
  • Kids' Corner--Join the kids as they learn to create effective business cards and flyers.
  • Amazing upcycling projects and ideas--Mrs. White, a new regular Digest contributor, has a true knack for turning trash into treasure! 
Each month take the wonderful opportunity to learn along with Molly, and make the most of your time and money in 2010.
