The Dime Roll: What Does the American Dream Have to Do With Spending?

July 7, 2017

This week on The Dime, we're lookin' at two things: 'Merica, and money. In addition to our top beach-style locations to visit across America's greatest state (a.k.a Colorado), we've got advice on freeing yourself from excessive spending during the warmer months of summer in honor of our self-proclaimed #freedom month. We've also got an interesting article about the way perceptions of the American Dream actually affect your spending habits (crazy, we know). Plus, we've compiled the latest and greatest from around the Internet to keep you up to date on all the happ's. 

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' know you want to.)
