With leaves changing its colors, mornings becoming cooler and crisper, there’s just something magical about the Fall Season. (And let’s not forget the amazing food that the Fall Season offers… Pumpkin everything.) It seems like everything is just slow and steady, just before the holiday rush. Speaking of holidays, now is the time to start saving for Christmas shopping and a bunch of school programs that your kids will be having.
So here are my tips and suggestions on how you can save money this Fall Season.
1. Get your Fall décor from Mother Nature.
Change of season means change of home décor. If you don’t have old ones to reuse, save your money by shopping from Mother Nature instead. Some of the most beautiful Fall décor can be found in your own backyard. Check out Pinterest for DIY Fall decorations using leaves, pinecones, sticks and acorns. Get crafty and creative!
2. Cook meals with squash.
Since squash is in season, obviously it’s relatively cheap. So take this opportunity and cook meals with this vegetable and save loads of money.
3. Make your own Pumpkin Spice Latte.
I know, I know… Fall season means Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Fight the urge to go to Starbucks and order your daily dose of Pumpkin Spice Latte and just make your own instead. Once can be forgiven but every day?? That will be too much. Not only that it will be insanely expensive, it’s not good for your weight too. You can find a lot of DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte recipes on Pinterest that are very easy to make with simple ingredients that you can buy from your nearest grocery stores.
4. Cancel your Gym subscription.
Since the weather will be a lot cooler, you don’t need to spend on your gym subscription this season. Take advantage of the perfect weather and do your workouts outdoors. From running, to cycling to hiking on the weekends, the options are endless when it comes to looking for physical activities during the Autumn time.
5. Sell old clothes.
Change of season also means a change of wardrobe. Set a weekend for decluttering your wardrobe to find old Fall pieces that you can reuse and find items of clothing that you can sell through a garage sale or sites like eBay and ThredUp. You can use that money to update your wardrobe instead of shelling out loads of cash for Fall shopping.
