Summer savings tips!
Summer savings tips!

Summer means barbecues, swimming until it’s dark and grilling outside with friends. It also means blasting the air conditioning, heading away on vacation and … well … spending a lot of money.

Well it could mean spending a lot of money. But I have a few summer savings tips for you…

Pack the Snacks

Especially if you have kids, one of the fastest ways to spend a ton of money while you’re out and about is on food, snacks and drinks. Travel prepared this season by heading to your destination armed with granola bars, fruit snacks, pretzels, almonds, etc.

Save on Energy

Try letting your clothes air dry outside instead of running the dryer, replace your standard light bulbs, use the microwave or toaster oven to heat up leftovers since they use less energy than a conventional oven and grill outside as often as possible.

Conserve Your Water Use

Water bills can really add up in the summer months, especially if your family is busy filling up pools outside to splash around in and running sprinklers for the yard. Instead of cutting back on the outdoor fun, try to make up for it by making small changes to your water usage inside. Encourage your family to take shorter showers and install a low-flow showerhead to conserve even more.
