The Dime Roll: Throw Your Dog (and Your Savings) a Bone

August 4, 2017

Owning a pet is paw-sibly one of the best things EVER, so we're taking this oppawtunity to thank our purrfect friends for the endless amounts of unconditional love they've given us over the years. In addition to some fun games and DIY projects, we've also got delicious treats that'll really make 'em say "bone" appetit! (last pet pun, we promise). While pets are certainly (hu)man's best friend, they don't usually help you save any money (they're technically dependents, after all), and this is where a new BFF we call the "no spend challenge" comes in handy. It's definitely not as cute, furry, or fun as your beloved fur-baby, but it can help give your wallet the unconditional love it deserves, too.

Plus, we've collected some great content from around the web to give you a super valid excuse to stay in bed from now until Sunday (sometimes weekend plans are overrated).

Are you a diehard Dimer? If so, we'd love for you to pass us along to your friends and family (dogs and grandmas included). We also love hearing from our readers, so hit us up on Facebook and Twitter if you've got something to share. (C'mon...you know you want to.)
