People consider summer as the most expensive season of the year. This impression is probably because of what most of us would experience during the summer season like those hidden and spontaneous expenses that we did not anticipate. Summer is the time when our children are more at home since school is done, and so we have to get them into activities to fill up their time, make our homes comfortable for them, and you will note that there will be more frequent household chores like washing to do, and these will all boil to expenses and money to spend.
Fortunately, summer is also a good opportunity to practice how to cut costs and be thrifty. Thus we came up with some great money saving ways that can make you further enjoy summer and at the same time have fun during the season.
We all know that going to amusement parks spells fun for all kids but in the process you have to shell out money for the admission tickets. 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.
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.
So we know that if kids are just in the house playing and making themselves dirty, you will be doing a lot 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. In exchange for that costly vacation, why not this time the whole family goes on camping, and get to explore nature at your locality, have fun setting up those tents with your children, bonfire and singing, and make plenty of memories without spending so much.
We consider a luxury to go out and have dinner and many cannot let months perhaps go by without eating out. 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.
