The change of seasons is a great time to reevaluate where you are financially. Here are some tips to help you save money this fall.
Weatherproof Your Home
A great fall home improvement is weatherproofing your home. Reduce energy costs this winter by caulking around windows and adding insulation.
Now that summer items are on clearance, think about buying items like beach towels, lawn chairs, and pool toys for next year. Also, if you have a wedding or party planned for next year, you can get great deals now on summer dresses.
Cook at Home
Fall is the best time to make hearty meals like vegetable soup or chili. Save money by not eating out and using ingredients you already have in your cabinets. Plus, it’s easy to make extra and freeze for later.
Now that the weather is cooler, it’s a great time to get out and exercise. Consider cancelling your gym membership, riding your bike or walking instead of driving to save money.
Make a Change
If you feel like the year has gotten away from you with too much spending and not enough budgeting, don’t just continue down that path, make a commitment to reel it in before the start of a new year.
