Save Money on Summer Bills!
The weather is warm, the sun is out and the beaches are calling your name! With endless possibilities for fun...how will your wallet survive the summer? There is no possible way! Think again! Here are a few tips for saving on your summer bills.
Air Conditioning and HVAC Systems:
Take advantage of ceiling fans or floor fans you may have in your home. In the mornings and especially the evenings you can run your AC system less to cut down on your usage and save some money. Here's another tip for your HVAC system...change out your air filters and get it serviced before changing over from heat to AC. This could save you money in the long run.
Put a hold on your gym membership. Instead get your work out in at parks, around the neighborhood or in your home. There are lots of parks that have benches, pull up bars and other workout equipment to help you stay fit.
Live in a neighborhood full of families and kids with similar ages? Pull together to hire a babysitter to watch a few children at the same time and the split the cost.
Hopefully the warmer weather gets you out of the house more! If so do you really need your amazon video, netflix, hulu, HBO, sling, NFL network and Starz subscriptions? Cut it down to 1 or 2 subscriptions for the summer and pocket the extra cash.
Do you pack your lunch for work? If you aren't already doing so, it is time to give it a try. Especially if you are prone to eat out a lot for lunch. On average packing your lunch for work can save you anywhere from $30-$60 per week!
