Summer is in the Air, Optimism and Sales Abound

So I don't know who has been paying attention to the stock market lately (I have!), but it has been on an absolute terror, and I am loving it! I am not sure what it is about this time of year, but there is a certain lightness of being all around, even in the financial world it seems.

Since Memorial Day starts summer unofficially, stores all around are trying to latch out to your excitement. Both REI and EMS have sales on camping gear this weekend. Other big time retailers like Macy*s and Dillards always join in the frenzy as well. While I'm not encouraging frivilous spending, maybe it's time to finally get that headlamp after all!
