Saving more and spending less in 2021

If your New Years’ resolution was to save more money, then hopefully you’re off to a great start! However, If you’re struggling, here are some great suggestions on how to stay in the green this year.

Lower Your Utilities: Utility bills can start to add up in 2021. One way to reduce it is by replacing your light bulbs with LED bulbs. More on that here.

Buy Store Brand: Store brand products can potentially save you up to 30% off, and that is without using coupons. Pair those two together and you’ll be saving lots of money at the grocery store! It also helps when you buy in bulk. If you have the space, buying larger packages of goods or supplies can reduce the overall long term price.

Go Paperless: Lots of places where you may have bills offer a discount for you to pay online and receive paperless statements. With all the bills life throws at us, any additional discount helps.

Group Cell Phone Plan: Sharing a cell phone plan with roommates, friends or family can make everyone’s cell phone bill cheaper.

TV Re-evaluation: Maybe it’s time to take a look at those streaming packages and cable. Are you really using all those channels and providers? If not, see where you can downgrade or perhaps even cancel.

Home cooked meals: Not only do home cooked meals save you money, but they can also help warm your house. When you open the oven the heat transfers into your home (much quicker than opening a door does in the summer).

October Holidays

October is here, and with it comes Fall, pumpkins, hot chocolate, Halloween and so much more! In this post, we will highlight some of the holidays you know in October, and maybe some of the ones you don’t as well!

October 1st: National Coffee Day The month of October starts off with a very important day, National Coffee Day! Maybe you need to wake up for the Fall season, and what better way to do that than with a nice cup of coffee!

October 4th: National Golf Lovers Day Depending on where you live, the golf season may be coming to a close. This is the perfect excuse to get out on the course one last time, before it is too cold!

October 12th: Columbus Day One of the few federal holidays of October is Columbus Day. The holiday is increasingly controversial due to the catastrophic impact of European settlement on native populations. Consequently, several states do not recognize the holiday and others celebrate it as Native American Day or Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

October 21st: National Apple Day You know what they say, an apple a day, keeps the doctor away!

October 31st: Halloween This is the big one, the holiday that everyone looks forward to all year! It’s time to dress up, trick or treat and eat some candy! Happy Halloween!

Saving money this Fall

Fall is officially here, and we want to help you save some money! It is an interesting time of year, between back to school and the holidays. There may not be a lot going on, which give a lot of opportunities to save money. In this article we will share some tips and advice on how to save up a little extra cash for the holidays.

Create a budget: This is a great way to make sure that you not only don’t over spend, but you also save. Whether it’s groceries, going out to dinner, other forms of shopping or anything else, try to make a limit ahead of time and don’t spend over that amount!

Now is not the time: Now is not the time for big purchases. Wait until the Holiday’s come around and see how much excess money you have laying around. You know you’ll be spending on big meals and gifts in November/December, so for October it’s time to take a step back.

Take advantage of free entertainment: What do we mean by this? There are many activities you can do in the fall that don’t cost a cent! Drive around and look at the leaves changing, go for a nice hike or walk and maybe even rake some leaves and jump into them!

Open the windows: Fall is that in-between time when it may not be too hot or too cold. Don’t waste money on heat or air, and let the 60 degree weather into your homes for as long as you can!

Yard Work: Instead of paying a company to come rake your leaves, and cut your grass, do it yourself! This is also another fun activity that could involve the entire family.

These are all great suggestions, and now it’s up to you to carry them out and save!

Staying in shape this summer!

Staying in shape is extremely important, but it can be tough when Summer brings on barbecues, pool parties and more. No matter what your plans are for the summer or what your everyday routine is, you can’t forget to try to be healthy. Here are some friendly and fun tips on how to stay healthy and in shape this summer!

Walking: Simple but easy, walking is an awesome way to stay in shape. Are you heading to a beach or pool by where you live? How about walking there instead of driving! The more walking you do the better, this summer. Up your walking to a slight jog or run for an even better workout.

Bike Riding: Maybe walking isn’t intense enough for you, and that’s when you can bike! Even if you don’t own a bike, most cities have bike rentals for real cheap. The best part about biking, is if you are in a scenic area it doesn’t even feel like exercise.

Utilizing your Grill: You most likely have access to a grill, well it’s time to use it. In addition to burgers, hot dogs and fish on the grill, you can grill up some awesome vegetables. Some of the best veggies to throw on the grill are corn, onions, peppers, zucchini and asparagus.

Go outside and play: Kids always want to go outside and play, and it is never a bad thing to go out and play with them. Whether it’s bike riding, kicking a soccer ball around, shooting a basketball or playing catch, this is an easy way to keep moving.

Dancing: This may sound funny, but dancing is actually an awesome way to burn some calories. Toss on some of your favorite music and get grooving!

While it is important to keep moving and eat healthy over the Summer, you also want to let yourself have a day to relax! Sitting by the pool with a nice cold drink helps with mental health which is just as important as physical. What is the point of good weather if you can’t en joy it anyway?
