This is the perfect time of year to get serious about saving. Here are five frugal strategies to help you take advantage of the nice weather and add to your savings!
Hang your clothes out to dry. Consider the benefits of air-drying your clothing, rather than using a dryer. This method uses less energy, which saves money and makes less of an impact on the environment. Line drying is also gentle on clothing, which helps to lengthen the life span of your garments!
Save on utilities. Now that the nicer weather has arrived, turn your heat off for the season. On warmer days, consider turning on the fan before opting for the AC. During the cool evenings, open the windows and let the breeze lower the temperature in your home.
Start your own garden. Save on your grocery bill by planting your own garden! Fortunately, it’s not that difficult or expensive to turn part of your backyard into a productive plot of land. Start by planting easy-to-grow vegetables like lettuce, potatoes, zucchini, peas, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Click here to read our recent blog article for more frugal gardening tips.
Have a garage sale. Making money is always fun! Take advantage of the nicer weather and sell items that you no longer need. Remember to put up signs in your neighborhood, or even place an ad on Facebook Marketplace. Here are more tips to help you have a successful garage sale.
Refresh your finances. Spring is the time of renewal, and the perfect occasion to refresh your finances. Start by combining your high interest debts into a consolidation loan with SeaComm! A consolidation loan allows you to combine all of your outstanding balances into one convenient monthly payment. This makes it easier to work out a reasonable period to pay off your debt, without feeling overwhelmed.
With SeaComm’s loan pre-approval program, LoanEngine™, you might already be pre-approved for a consolidation loan! If you qualify for a pre-approved offer, you’ll be presented with it through our SeaComm Mobile app or NetTeller™ in the “My Offers” tab, via email, and/or a letter through the mail.
