Review your miscellaneous spending this month and find ways to cut back. Try to give up a subscription you don’t really need, brown-bag it to work another few times a week and skip the gym membership by getting your workout at home. Small purchases add up quickly!
Fast food is super convenient — and expensive. It’s not that great for your health, either. Try to slow down on your fast-food purchases this month by thinking ahead. Keep some snacks in the car to help tide you over when you’re pulling a late night and have some drinks on hand as well. Save time, calories and money by putting the brakes on your fast-food purchases.
It’s time to get your house ready for winter! As you weather-strip your home and check for air leaks, look for exposed pipes as well. If you find any, wrap and insulate them carefully so they don’t freeze up when the temperatures fall. A few minutes of your time now can save you the hassle and cost of fixing burst pipes in the dead of winter.
Give your car the care it deserves by getting it a routine service check this month. You’ll possibly catch any developing issues before they become major, and add years of life to your vehicle. You may even get better fuel mileage by making sure everything is in proper working order.
