Welcome to the Financial Carnival for Young Adults – End of Summer Edition. Yup, summer is officially over. It was a great one for me, lots of weddings, lots of golf and lots of great weather. I love the fall, so the only downside to the end of summer is that the days are getting shorter. As you begin to prep for the fall and eventually the winter, be sure to take a moment to review your finances too. Staying on top of them will help you to realize your financial goals! Here are a handful of great posts to get you started!
