The federal government gives us the fourth Monday in May off to celebrate those who have died for our military. But that's no reason you can't spend Memorial Day weekend hitting the sales too. There's nothing quite as patriotic as boosting our nation's economy, am I right?
Believe it or not, the money people spend on the first "real" summer weekend is a vital piece of what keeps the economy going. The auto industry alone is counting on this weekend to boost its sales by 30 percent over last year.
