Summer – that one season when life becomes more inspiring and easier for living. You are full of energy, eager to walk and play some sport, you can enjoy the sunset and the sunrise and your thoughts are directed towards the holiday that follows. But there is the other side of this pleasure – a temptation for your wallet and your summer budget. Each time you visit the supermarket or the shopping mall, you are challenged to make a longer grocery list. You ask yourself why? It’s simple; summer always offers us plenty of new products that we’d like to buy. Here are some tips that will help you organize your summer budget.
Make a list of summer shopping categories
This category will help you organize and separate the necessary from the unnecessary. Write this list at the beginning of summer and put the thing that is essential to buy on the top of list.
Summer clothes: flower dress, high waisted shorts.
Kitchen utensils: masher and turners, ladle.
Beach and holiday: beach mattress, sun umbrella.
Make a plan for your vacation budget and save money by choosing the right summer offer
Going on holiday can sometimes mean and hasty decision. The need to “escape” from work, from the monotony of everyday life and tiredness does not mean that you have to pay expensive price for your vacation. Choose one day and use it to surf the Internet (it’s summer!) and search for travel agencies. See their offers, write down the ones with best benefits and choose one. Don’t rush the decision and discuss it with your friends; if they were already on vacation, maybe can tell you a cheaper variant.
What’s your today’s menu?
Plan the meals before you go to the supermarket; don’t buy groceries or foods that you won’t need that day for cooking. Thus, you will save money and you won’t throw food away.
Home decoration and clothes
Refresh your home with DIY items instead of buying new summer decorations. Sometimes, it’s enough to have a vase of fresh flowers and beautiful colorful blankets. The same goes for summer clothes; colors, materials and patterns are an easy bait. Buy only that piece of clothing which fits you nice and which you can combine with other pieces.
