A beach house rental checklist

REHOBOTH, Delaware My husband and I have vacationed at the beach in Rehoboth, Delaware, with our dogs for many years. We always stayed at a pet-friendly inn, except for one weekend at a condo.

There are times when people consider me as someone who is cheap because I use coupons, sometimes spend months shopping around for the best prices, or because I return to stores for price adjustments when items come on sale. However, because I am a person who chooses to manage my money and spend it wisely I consider myself as frugal. There is always that battle between cheap vs. frugal.

Slacking is good for business

I read a Facebook post from a business owner who said he and his family were about to end their 'stay-cation' and gear their business back up for the new year. He further reflected on feeling burned out after a hectic holiday season and how they needed a break. I can relate. I too have taken a January break from my business, and now I'm feeling ready to fire it up for the new year.
