Saving for summer may mean saving for NEXT summer. When summer starts to wind down, it’s a perfect time to be on the hunt for season ending deals for your future home and garden projects. Landscape plants, tools, and other outdoor project materials usually go on sale as people begin to look toward fall and spending less time outside. You can always keep an eye on the coupon market with sites like onegoodbargain.com.
For deals on outdoor sports, like rock climbing, baseball, sand volleyball and tennis, you can review sites that offer daily deals like SweetJack.com. If you’re looking for discounts on golf clubs, other equipment and accessories, shop sites like RockBottomGolf.com. For discounted rounds, head to the course on a Wednesday since it’s typically the slowest day for public and private golf courses.
Planning ahead is usually a key element to saving money, so don’t buy tickets at a busy theme-park entrance. Save 10-25% by buying ahead at a supermarket or a discount bulk store, like Sam’s Club or Costco (membership required). Also, head to participating movie theaters on discount family days or date night specials when movie tickets are cheaper.
Using the stove or baking in the oven can create a lot of excess heat that has nowhere to go except in your house on already hot summer days. If you take the heat outside, you can keep your inside cool and save on the A/C costs.
