3 Hacks for Saving Money This Summer | St. Johns Bank

We all want to take time this summer to take a break from the daily grind. Whether it is going on a cruise, heading to Disney World or just going somewhere you can get away and enjoy some time off, it is going to cost you some money.

However, our team at St. Johns Bank wants you to also think of ways you can save money this summer, starting with:

Watch Your Grocery Bill

Especially with the kids home for summer break, chances are high that your grocery bill is also going to go up. Watch your spending at the grocery store each week and buy in bulk when you can in order to save money.

The classic family meals of a salad, meat, two sides, rolls and dessert are no longer a necessity nowadays. Instead, simple meals like spaghetti and a salad or even breakfast items, such as an omelet, can make for good dinners throughout the week to switch things up.

As a result, you don’t need to go shopping for the three-course dinner every day of the week. Keep it simple!

Replace Your Air Filters

If you cannot remember the last time you changed the air filters in your home, then it has been too long!

As the temperatures are on the rise, your air conditioner is already working hard to keep your home cool. Do not make it more difficult than it needs to be by keeping old air filters in your home.

The air filters should be changed out regularly. If you aren’t sure how often to change yours, the packaging often indicates a frequency. Changing the filter regularly will help out your monthly energy bill, too, which is a win-win!

Get Outside and Have Some Fun

Instead of spending your summer days indoors using electricity and such, why not get out and enjoy the sunny days by either going for a picnic or a walk at the local park?

Not only will the vitamin D be good for you, it can also help you to keep your energy bills low in the summer, which will put more money in your pocket!
