Tuesday is here again. It’s not quite the beginning of the week, but far from the end. Luckily we have some great things that you can do to give you that weekend feeling and the best part is that it’s all under $10. Today’s installment of Dollars and Sense is focusing on the city of Santa Fe in New Mexico. Check it out below.
Visit The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum
This is a must-go for O’Keeffe aficionados, this museum, which opened in 1997 inside a 13,000-square-foot adobe former church, shows dozens of works by the curmudgeonly painter who spent the last half-century of her life just northwest of Santa Fe. Selections from the permanent collection rotate, but visitors will see plenty of her greatest hits—including Manhattan skylines, desertscapes, and enormous blossoms from her famous Flowers series. Even if you’re not an O’Keeffe fan, the site is worth checking out for its superb temporary exhibits, which have included works by Marsden Hartley and Andy Warhol.
Visit The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology
The Museum of Indian Arts & Culture/Laboratory of Anthropology is part of the Museum Hill complex about three miles southeast of the Plaza. This is the best of a handful of facilities in town dedicated to preserving and interpreting the Southwest’s indigenous pottery, weaving, jewelry, and other art forms. It’s not merely a record of the past either; MIAC shows the works of quite a few emerging talents, including many from pueblos in North-Central New Mexico.
Financial Tip Of The Day
Keep Your Car As Long As Possible
When possible, try to keep your car as long as possible. Find the balance between the money spent on repairs versus the monthly installment on another vehicle and choose to run your old car as long as the repair costs are low.
