As summer comes near, we are expecting again for more expenses to come in. We think of this of summer because we usually incur hidden and spontaneous expenses that we never thought of that we will spend. 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.
But for all you know, you can consider summer as a season to practice saving some costs and become thrifty. And so, we are giving you the following ideas that can save you money during summer and still enjoy 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 our suggestion is you get some free fun using your community park, have a picnic with your kids, play some baseball or soccer on the field, and so on, and everybody will have fun without you spending for admission tickets.
You can be cool during summer without spending so much on your electricity, and this you can do by changing the filter of your air con and getting a programmable thermostat.
Avoid spending money on your air conditioning and allowing cool air to just flow out because you have leaks in your doors and windows, thus, it is advisable that you conduct weather stripping to fill up those gaps.
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. 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. 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 consider a luxury to go out and have dinner and many cannot let months perhaps go by without eating out. We are therefore recommending that you cook at home, and save some of your 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.
