Summer can be one of the most expensive times of year for most people. In the dead of winter, it’s easier to settle down, lower all your bills (with the exception of heating) and watch Netflix and drink hot chocolate for entertainment.
During the summer months, however, that’s just not the case. Between summer BBQs and events, children’s activities, and vacations, it can become very easy to overspend and blow your budget.
Oh, and let’s not forget about your awesome summer bucket list. Perhaps in May, you put together an impressive list of all the things you were going to experience for the summer. Even if you didn’t actually write ideas down, I’m sure you thought about where you wanted to go and the things you wanted to do this summer. Then, time flew by and you decided to get a tighter grip on your finances.
