Well it’s Tuesday again and you know what that means! Other than the fact that you made it through Monday, it means we have a couple of great things that you can do for $10 or less. For those of you who happen to be in the San Diego, California area, this installment of Dollars & Sense is just for you. Check it out below!
Visit the U.S. Olympic Training Center
If you are still having dreams of flying through the air like Gabby Douglas after watching the 2012 Olymic Games, maybe you will have a great time visiting the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. Explore the center with a free tour of the 150-acre facility, including training fields and tracks, athlete dorms and the Otay Lake Reservoir. Self-guided tours are available daily between 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Relax On The Big Bay
Take a scenic walk along The Big Bay, San Diego’s “largest attraction.” The Big Bay is a whopping 27 miles of waterfront featuring bayside parks, marinas, hundreds of shops and restaurants, and miles of promenades and bikeways. The Big Bay appeals to all ages and interests but your best bet is to go without any plans and just try to forget about the next 3 days in the work week.
Financial Tip Of The Day
Be Diligent About Turning Off Lights Before You Leave.
If you spend one minute turning off lights before a two hour trip, that’s the equivalent of earning $50 an hour. That’s some impressive savings, particularly if you do it before longer trips. The key is to use less energy, particularly when you’re not using the device.
