How To Cool Down Costs Despite The Heat

High temperatures don’t have to overheat budgets. Take care to watch your spending in the hot months, and in some cases use the heat to your advantage, and you make it to the cooler months without burning too much paper.

A guest post on Blonde & Balanced offers ways to save money during the summer. Tips include:

*Fill your fridge. The more full you keep your refrigerator, the less frequently it will have to expend power re-cooling itself. If you don’t have enough leftovers to do the job, just use pitchers of water.

*Ditch the dryer. Save electricity by making the sun work for you, drying clothes outside on a rack or clothesline.
