Summertime should be a season of outdoor fun in the sun -- but what if you don't have the savings set aside to afford some free time?
Sounds like a sorely missed opportunity. That means you need to start your summer savings now.
Here are some great tips for preparing a personal spending account for the summer:
- Turn off your home air conditioner and throw those windows wide open every chance you get. The mild temperatures of spring always come with a cool breeze, so save all the money you can on your electricity bill!
- Grow some veggies outside in a small garden. That way, you'll save time and money by not having to rush to the grocery store to buy tomatoes, carrots, green beans, or whatever else you can grow. You might even find you have a green thumb!
- Talk to your employer about splitting your paycheck up and creating a savings account. You get to decide what amount from each check goes into that account, so start small at first. If this is done automatically, your savings will build up in no time!
- Do your clothes and household items shopping at thrift stores. Many people fail to realize just how awesome the selection at many thrift stores can be -- which means they miss out on great deals. The money saved by not buying at full price can be put directly into your summer savings account!
With these tips, there's a great chance you'll have all you need to get away this summer and spend some quality time with your family and friends.
