Tips on How to Budget for a Great Summer

 

Summer is such a wonderful time of year. The kids are out of school, the weather is nice, and there's a grand feeling of fun and excitement that comes with the season. With so many choices for recreation, however, you may find it challenging to fit everything you want to do within your budget. Thankfully, if you plan ahead, you can enjoy all the advantages of summer without breaking your bank!

 

Take in a Matinee

 

Many of the most exciting film releases of the year occur in the summertime. Many summers, you can see a new movie every week for the entire season. Seeing an afternoon showing offers a way to beat the heat and relax. You can see the latest releases and often pay half-price compared with an evening showing!

 

Some movie theaters such as Regal, Megaplex, Cinemark and AMC to name a few, offer summer specials for family-friendly movies, check with your local theaters to see if they offer any of these summer specials.

 

For even more savings at the movie theater, cut back at the snack bar. Your waistline will thank you, and so will your pocketbook. Your afternoon at the movies will be just as satisfying.

 

You can save even more with a movie rental subscription. That way, you can sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home and still enjoy an inexpensive evening of entertainment.

 

Take Advantage of Group Rates

 

Many theme parks and attractions offer a family package or discounts for groups of a certain size. Sometimes, you have to ask for the group rate. But if you're planning an outing with friends, you can stretch the money you save on a group rate and enjoy more of the activities that the summer has to offer.

 

Airlines and hotels frequently offer family or group rates for travel during the summer as well. If you're planning to travel this summer, shop around for the best bargains and save yourself some cash.

 

Think Local

 

In the summer months, many travel far away in search of adventure. In many cases, you can experience a similar adventure without venturing too far from your home. Save money on hotels, plane tickets, and baggage fees by exploring all that your local area has to offer this summer.

 

If you're not sure about what fun things are available in your area, try searching the Internet for your city's name and "tourism." You might be surprised to find that the adventure you seek is right in your own backyard!

 

Browse for Deals

 

Shopping around for the best deal is important when traveling this summer, but it can also save you money close to home. Stiff competition in your neighborhood could cause restaurants, diners, and attractions to offer great specials to steer you away from the competition.

 

Bowling alleys, golf courses, zoos, and many other fun summer activities often have summer deals for customers. If you invest a little time to search for these deals, your friends and family can often enjoy an outing together for much less than you would expect.

 

Know Your Limits

 

Summer offers many recreational choices. Sometimes, however, the best option is to say no. Your body needs rest, and so does your mind. Choose the activities that best fit your interests, and say no to the others. You'll experience more energy and peace within yourself while saving money at the same time.

 

Summer can be an expensive time of year, but it doesn't have to break your budget. By making wise choices with your money and slowing down a little, you can enjoy summer recreation and save money at the same time.

Now, let’s talk about furniture. Memorial Day is considered one of the biggest blowout shopping days of the year; making this event almost as big as Christmas at the beginning of summer. You may look for plenty of deals on furniture, home d├ęcor, and even grills; perfect for those summer cookouts.

April Shopping Guide 2021

Check out all the Krazy deals we found for April 2021.
This post contains paid affiliate links, please read our Advertising Disclosure Statement.



April showers bring May flowers and also the dreaded spring cleaning.

Now is the time to start packing away those winter clothes. You can find many deals on storage totes, organization, and cleaning supplies. April is also a great time to replace your vacuum cleaner. I know buying a vacuum isn’t necessarily the most exciting purchase you'll make, but it can be less painful when you’re taking advantage of a spring cleaning sale. Easter is Sunday, April 4th this year, and when Easter is done and over, leftover candy and Easter-related products will be deeply discounted.

Also with winter finally over (for some of us..lol), it’s the perfect time to get active again and there will be many deals on sneakers and activewear to help you out. Consider this your reminder and extra motivation to keep working towards those fitness goals you set in January! Keep going, YOU GOT THIS!!

Surprisingly tires also go down in price around April, so if you need to replace them, April is a great month to find Krazy Deals on some new tires. Also, FYI Mother's Day is right around the corner coming up on Sunday, May 9th to be exact, so some April deals would work out well too, as small appliances and jewelry tend to be discounted in April.

April definitely has its fair share of spring deals and discounts. Other dates to remember coming up in April Earth Day on Monday the 22nd, Administrative Professionals Day on Wednesday the 21st, and Arbor Day on Friday the 26th. Normally Tax Day is April 15th however, this year it has been extended to May 17th, 2021. 

With Covid-19 still lingering our shopping experiences have shifted to even more online shopping. So, if you're like me and always looking to save even more money on your online purchases two of my go-to coupon and coupon code browser extensions are Honey and Rakuten. Ibotta has recently launched a Beta Browser that is on the fast track to becoming my favorite browser, I highly recommend checking it out and giving it a try!

Top 10 Budgeting Strategies To Help You Curb Overspending

Top 10 Budgeting Strategies To Help You Curb Overspending 

At Krazy Deal Daze were not just about spending money on Krazy Deals!

In the event that your spending habits have you digging for pennies before the next payday, it might be time for a change. Unfortunately, running out of cash before payday, especially if you do it over and over, can cause a lot of undue stress that can negatively affect not only your pocketbook but your health as well. 

However, all hope is not lost and you can reduce this stress and get back on track with your finances by reevaluating and altering your spending habits.

So how can you accomplish this?

Try these budgeting techniques:

1.      Make a Master List. The first step to any well-thought-out action plan is to develop a list! So you’re going to start by making a list of all your loan payments and credit card bills. You’ll expand your awareness about the number of creditors you have, the total amount you owe, and the due dates of your monthly payments.

·         On the list, have 5 columns: the name of the creditor, your monthly payment, the due date of each month’s payment, the amount of interest you’re charged, and the total amount you owe.

2.      Add other monthly expenditures to your Master List. Next, list things like your rent or mortgage payment, grocery costs, gasoline costs, and anything else you pay monthly. Estimate the amounts for your cable, water, garbage, cell phone, and utility bills, using last month’s statements. Your Master List should reflect all your outgoing expenditures.

3.      Establish priorities. Which bills do you see as the most important? Mark them in some way by highlighting or circling them.

 

·         Don’t know what bill has the highest priority: A good place to start is your housing! Your rent or mortgage should always be at the top of your list. If you require transportation to get to your job, then I would personally have that as my second priority! If you can’t get to work, that can definitely hinder your ability to make the money to pay the bills.

4.      Survey the remaining bills. In looking at these non-priority bills, you can most likely discover some areas in which you can lower your costs.

5.      Examine frivolous expenditures. Are you spending $50 a week on fancy coffees? Do you stop after work for a few beers with co-workers two or three days a week? Are you going out to eat or ordering takeout more than two times a week? If so, consider the amount of money you spend on these sorts of activities. Which expenditures can you reduce? Which can you cut out completely?

 

6.      Call your credit card and utility companies to request lower interest rates or payments. Make a notation on your Master List of the reduced rates and/or payments you receive. Also, note any companies that refuse to reduce your rates. Remember it never hurts to ask and the worst that could happen is they simply say no. Make the decision to stop using credit cards with high-interest rates.

7.      Take decisive steps to reduce your expenses. For example, if you’re paying out $200 a month for premium cable channels and they are unwilling to reduce your bill (In my personal experience they have always reduced my bill when I call and ask for a lower payment), you have the power to cut your cable bill by removing the service completely.

8.      Determine how you can bring in additional dollars. You could consider getting a second job. There are other money-making opportunities you could consider as well. Are you a crafter? Sell your crafts on Etsy. Do you have a lot of items around your house that you don’t use or need anymore? Host a yard sale or list the items for sale on a community marketplace site like Facebook marketplace. Use cashback apps and extension browsers such as Fetch Rewards, Ibotta, Honey, and Rakuten when shopping for necessities. Then, use the extra money you earn to pay off debts. Recognize you do have the power to change things.

9.      Keep your Master List with you throughout the day. Each time you’re about to make a purchase, glance at the list and reflect on your bills and financial goals. Ask yourself if you truly need what you’re about to purchase. Allow yourself to feel proud about this new routine.

10.  Record your thoughts and feelings about the changes you’re making. It’s a challenge to try to change something about yourself, and how you manage your finances is no different. Write down how you’re feeling about adjusting your spending habits. It also helps to write about your financial goals, why you are trying to pay down your debt, why you’re trying to save money, and what are the financial goals you’re working towards.  Be optimistic that you can and will change your financial situation.

 

If you consistently find yourself running out of cash and struggling to pay your bills, vow to follow these strategies to change your spending behaviors. You have the choice to alter your financial habits in powerful ways. You can do it!
