Happy Labor Day!  It's an awesome day to wind down a totally relaxing 3-day weekend away from work. Unless your job involves hospitals, gas stations, retail stores, babysitting, and dozens of other jobs.  Then you're like, "what day off?"It's a holiday weekend for many, but there are thousands that are working, and maybe it's business as usual for you.  Here come the crowds, to make your day busier than it would be on a normal Monday.

Across the Treasure Valley the libraries, post offices, and banks are closed.  Schools are closed, including Boise State.  There are some changes to trash collections schedules if Monday is usually your day, and you can click HERE to see those.

You know what's open?  Stores!  So let's go shopping.  Costco is one store that closes on Labor Day, but most other grocery stores and retail shopping centers are open today. The Outlets and Boise Towne Square Mall are open.

Labor Day is one of the biggest grilling holidays of the year, and US News has some good ideas about how to pull off the barbecue without spending a whole lot.  Like make it a pot luck, and rope your friends into bringing things.  Text them now, and they'll still have time to stop at the store and buy their homemade contribution on the way to your house.

Have a great day "off."  And thanks for listening!
