Summer Save Series: 5 Quick Tips To Save Money This Summer

Have Kids Go Outside and Play

Call us old fashioned, but summer was the most fun when you could just play outside as a kid. You don't have to have activities, or plan anything. Just tell the kids to run in the sprinklers, ride a bike, make believe!

Wash your clothes in cold water.

You can wash your clothes in cold water and they’ll get clean. The U.S. Department of Energy says two of the best ways to reduce the amount of energy your home eats up is by using less water and using a cold water temperature. You can cut your energy bill down significantly.

Stock up on dollar store snacks before a road trip and save $25 to $50.

If you normally stop for snacks while on the road, purchasing them at a dollar store ahead of time eliminates the need to buy overpriced snacks from a gas station.

Skip the car wash and save $60 to $100.

Skipping the car wash six times this summer could save you $60 to $100! Every week that you’d usually drive through a car wash, transfer $10 into your summer savings account.

Save $400 by skipping the theme park and visiting a natural park instead.

A one-day ticket price for a theme park can range from about $50 to over $150 (Disney is getting outrageous). That means a family of four could pay anywhere from $280 to $400 for just one day of fun! That is a ton of money! Keep your cash and visit a state park in the great outdoors. Many parks are free or only charge a minimal entry fee per car.
