Prepayment is Key
When borrowing a large amount of money for a house or a car, make sure you get a loan with no prepayment penalty. Then you should always pay more than the minimum payment.
Storing Water for Emergencies
Water should be stored in containers that are made specifically for water storage, or in glass and plastic bottles that were previously used for juice, pop or water. Clean the containers thoroughly before using and make sure that the container has a tight fitting cap.

Dawn's Christmas Tradition
Every year the day after Christmas my family and I go to camp in Fort Wilderness at Disney for a week. We have done this since I was very young. My cousins used to come from Michigan and the two families would make lots of wonderful memories that we STILL talk about today.
