Sunday Reads June 2nd

Can you believe it’s June already? Time flies. In only 5 days my kids will be out of school for the summer. Even with all the lists of things to do I’ve created I may be slightly panicked.

A favor? If you haven’t filled out my survey yet, please do so. The feedback I’ve gotten so far has been great (thank you!) but would love for more readers to weigh in with their thoughts. — Take the Centsible Life survey here.

I’ve also had some backend work (this makes me giggle every time) done on the blog, so if you notice anything that’s not working, please let me know!
