You've probably heard the expression "the dog days of summer" but do you really know what it means? The answer comes from the Greeks and the Romans and the stars. When Sirius, also known as the dog star, aligns with the sun the days are hotter. This generally occurs during the period between July 3 and August 11th, hence the name "dog days." Historically, some people even believed that the dog days brought on drought, fever, and bad luck. If the oppressive heat has you down, we have the solution.

Saving money is simple too. Of course, not buying things you don't need saves you big bucks. Knowing whether you're getting a good deal on something can also help you save.

Until, that is, you pull up your Stockpile records and see it now costs twice as much as it did six months ago. Don't get sucked in by savvy marketing that is trying to convince you a price gouge is really a bargain. Know what things are worth and you'll never overpay again.
