Fall Into Money Saving Habits This Season

There are always tips and tricks to save money in every season, so here’s a few things you can this Autumn.

Before the cold sets in check all of your windows and doors to make sure heat won’t be escaping this winter. If you wait until you find the leak your heating bill may already have done major damage to your bank account. Check your furnace/radiator to make sure their working properly before you need them.

Try two wheels instead of four
This time of year is perfect for being outdoors because you can easily alter your body temperature (hat or light sweater). Who needs the gym? Bike to the grocery store, a hangout spot with your friends or even your job to get more than your daily dose of exercise. You will also save money on gas, and reduce your carbon footprint.

In with the old, out with the older
Is there a better time to get rid of the things you haven’t used or worn this summer? Thought you were going to take up rollerblading this summer, but never got around to it? Chances if you haven’t used an item in the past 30 days or less, you have no need for it. A good idea would be to have a garage sale before it gets too cold. If you don’t have the space, try online sites like kijiji .

Free attractions
During the fall there are tons of events going on all across Ontario, farmers markets, pumpkin patches, apple picking tours, jam making classes, outdoor festivals and more!. Take advantage of some of the free activities goin on this season!

Inside eating
Autumn brings people together for thanksgiving and family gatherings so you will save you a ton by cooking at home. What sounds better than potlucks, hot cocoa, and roasting marshmallows with friends over the heat of a crisp fire?

Christmas shopping
You don’t have to wait until Christmas to get your gift list out of the way. Its actually much cheaper to buy your gifts in advance before retailers hike up their prices. Without the last minute stress you’ll also be less likely to impulse buy. Best of all, you don’t have to wait until Christmas to start your holiday shopping! Its much cheaper to buy them in the off season before retailers hike up their prices. You wont feel as rushed and pressured to make impulsive purchases!
