More Fun This Summer and Save at the Same Time
As summer comes near, we are expecting again for more expenses to come in. This is because we usually experience during summer expenses that sometimes we do not expect or even budgeted. The fact that our children will not be in school, and so they have to have enjoyable activities, our homes need to be ready with them around the whole day, and household chores seem to be increasing like more washing to be done, and these will all equate to expenses.
If you look at the brighter side of summer, it is the time of the year when you can get into the habit of cutting down costs and save money. This is why we are presenting to you some great money saving ideas that you can try out this summer season and same time have fun.
Kids enjoy a lot going to amusement parks but this will make you spend a lot of money with the admission tickets you will have to pay. So why not use your local community part, bring a picnic basket, do some running and simple sports, so your kids will have fun for free on your side.
Another idea to be thrifty during summer is by getting a programmable thermostat and changing the filter, this way you will still be cool but not spending so much of your electricity.
During summer, it is high time to conduct weather stripping to fill up gaps in your doors and windows, and thus you will not be wasting electricity through these leaks and consequently not paying so much wasted money.
A lot of washing can be noticed during summer with children in the house playing and giving you dirty clothes more often, and so you will be doing lots and lots of washing. Purchasing an energy efficient washer and dryer would be a great investment in this case.
Going on a vacation or visiting places we always to go sounds great but you will spend a big amount of money with the whole family at your side. And so to keep your costs down this summer, we suggest a family that goes camping, explore your surroundings, have fun setting up the tents with the kids, make a bonfire and sing around it, and so on.
We cannot imagine not ever going out to eat for this is one luxury that we cannot miss out forever. The suggestion here is to limit the frequency of your eating out and try cooking at home to save you plenty of money. Spice up your cooking by assigning a food theme on some nights like an Italian dinner, or Mexican dinner night, and maybe do some barbeque cooking at your backyard.
