Consumer debt is increasing

Household debt is climbing.

This quarter, it's up more than $300 billion, according the Federal Reserve of New York. That's the largest increase since 2007.

And it brings our collective IOU to almost $15 trillion.

Most of that is mortgage debt.

Flight cancellations continue

Some airlines are having trouble keeping up, and their cancellations show it. 

Spirit cancelled nearly 60% of its schedule Tuesday, or more than 400 flights, according to Flight Aware.

American Airlines canceled at least 340 flights Tuesday.

NYC to require vaccinations for indoor events

If your flight isn't canceled and you're headed to New York City soon, you'll have to be vaccinated for any indoor events.

Mayor Bill de Blasio made the announcement Tuesday, saying they'll start rolling out the rules in two weeks, with them fully implemented in September.

You'll be able to show proof with the city's app or CDC card.    

'Smart' soap dispenser

Amazon has a new device that could lead to less singing while you wash your hands.

It's $55 and goes on sale Wednesday

To save money, just tell your kids or spouse to sing "Happy Birthday" for 20 seconds.
