More Fun This Summer and Save at the Same Time
People consider summer as the most expensive season of the year. This is because we usually experience during summer expenses that sometimes we do not expect or even budgeted. Imagine our kids are not in school anymore, and so we have to fill them with activities to fill their day, plus we have to prepare our homes to be more comfortable, and chores are more than ever, and these all will equate to money.
Fortunately, summer is also a good opportunity to practice how to cut costs and be thrifty. 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. We suggest therefore that you go to your local community park, and get free fun by having a picnic there, play some baseball catch or soccer, and at the same time you do not have to pay for any ticket at all.
You can save your electricity cost during summer by getting a programmable thermostat and by changing the filter.
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.
Kids plus the hot season of summer that makes everybody change more often would mean constant washing. And so, it would be wise to save energy by buying a washer and dryer that is economical and energy efficient.
We always love going on a vacation somewhere or go to a place we always wanted to go, but this would mean large expenses especially if it involves the whole family. So we suggest a family local camping, this way you will keep your costs to a minimum, you get to explore your local environment, have fun setting up those tents with the kids, and make plenty of memories of the whole activity.
We all love to eat out and we cannot imagine living without going out sometimes. So in lieu of frequent eating out, why not everybody take turns in cooking at home and in the process save some money. Shake up your kitchen by cooking at home and have a themed dinner in some nights, like an Italian night, or burger night or barbeque at the yard, and so on.
