Happy Sunday! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! My family and I are currently on our way to Miami to board the Carnival Breeze for a six day cruise, where we were invited to experience the cruise line’s Carnival Live concert series, which brings big name bands right to the ship. My husband is pretty pumped that we are seeing one of his favorite bands ever–Styx–in such an intimate setting!
In other news, there is still time to participate in our Clutter Free Challenge, which is happening here at Living Well Spending Less the entire month of October! This fun 31 day challenge is absolutely free to join, and if you are a blogger you can join in the fun by blogging about it and linking up each day!
