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.

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!

May has quite a few noteworthy Holidays and “National” days. From Cinco De Mayo to Memorial Day, May surely is a jam-packed month filled with celebrating, remembering, barbecuing, spending time with family and having fun!

Cinco De Mayo (May 5th):

  • Cinco de Mayo 2020 is a celebration that is observed, yearly, on May 5. It is a day that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory, on May 5, 1862, over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). In the United States Cinco de Mayo 2020 has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture but should not be confused with Mexico’s Independence Day which is celebrated on September 16.

Mother’s Day (May 10th)

  • Mother’s Day is a holiday celebrated annually on the second Sunday of May. It is a day that commemorates motherhood and appreciates all mothers and mother-figures (including grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, and foster mothers) as well as their contribution to society.

Memorial Day (May 25th)

  • Memorial Day 2020 formally known as Decoration Day, is a federal holiday observed yearly on the last Monday of May. Memorial Day 2020 is a day that commemorates all men and women who have died while serving in the military for the United States of America.

May Flowers (Thank you April Showers!)

Everyone knows the saying, “April showers bring May flowers”. But, not everyone knows exactly what flowers those showers actually bring. In this article, we will highlight some of the best “May” flowers to plant/grow in your own home garden this spring and summer!

Sunflowers:

  • Sunflowers are very popular. They add a cheerful note to any landscape. When planted in mid-May, they will be fully sprouted by the end of August! These flowers are extremely easy to grow, and under the right conditions they can grow to be as tall as 4 to 5 feet!

Marigolds:

  • Marigold is one of if not the most poplar flower to grow in home or commercial gardens across the United States. Depending on the variety, they can grow to be anywhere between 8 to 36 inches tall. They are most commonly grown in May. Marigolds are often used as ways to get unwanted pests away from fruits and vegetables that may be in your garden.

Cosmos:

  • Cosmos are commonly planted in May because the temperature across the United States is very sustainable for growing. They are very low maintenance and fit in to almost any landscape. They will grow to be between 2 and 3 feet tall and about 1 foot wide. These are great flowers!
