Looking to kick things up a notch? Learn how you can have fun this summer and still save some serious money!
Summer Saving Fun
I'm so ready for summer!
The tricky part of summer, especially if you have little ones, is making sure you don't go broke while still having fun.
So to wrap up this season, I challenged myself. Today I'm going to share how you can save a grand this summer!
We're going to look at 4 areas and show you 5 ways to save.
Hope you enjoy!
Getting the Best Deals
If you're out shopping make sure you're getting the best deals! Some of my favorite apps and sites are:
Your family's smartphone plan shouldn't cost you a fortune. There are some fantastic deals out there. I use Republic Wireless and love them. They have an incredible line of phones. I have two lines with them and pay less than $50/month!
You may also want to look at providers like Ting, Freedom Pop, and StraightTalk.
When shopping online, hold off on those impulse buys you may be able to score a better deal by leaving before the purchase. I had a site send me an email afterward with a cheaper price. You may also want to switch to incognito mode.
Boost Your Savings
If you're looking to ramp up savings here are some great apps and services to try out.
They can help you track your money quickly and easily.
You also want to make sure you're keeping a visual reminder of what you're saving towards. It can keep you motivated when you're in the middle of things.
And of course, automate your savings. It's not doing you any good until it's stashed away.
I've been writing for Couple Money for almost nine years and I will tell you that one of the biggest budget busters that couples have is eating out. Break this cycle by:
Summer is a fantastic time to get out of town and explore someplace new. Using sites and apps like Skyscanner and CheapOair can make your money go further next trip!
