Kick Off to a
June is the month to kick off summer! The weather is warmer. The kids will be off school. This is a month when many of us have planned some of our summer vacation time.
Summer also gives up some opportunities to save a little—opportunities that just don’t apply in the winter! Here are 3 tips for summer savings that can really add up.
Be conservative when you use - and don’t use - your air conditioning. You don’t have to suffer through sweltering heat, just be more aware of when you actually need to turn it on. Turn your AC down, or even off if:
- You’re leaving for the whole day, or the weekend
- It’s going to be a cool night—open a few windows instead
Your stove can create a lot of excess heat. Consider taking meals outside and plan to use the barbecue. Cooking outside can easily turn into a fun picnic for the family.
Hang it up!
Hang your clothes on the line to dry. Let the sun and warm summer breeze save you some on your energy bill! You'll be amazed at how fresh your clothes smell.
