Hopefully, you’ve followed our March money-saving tips. Now it is time to move to the next month. April is already in its full swing, although you probably haven’t recovered from freezing and snowy days yet.
While a lot of people are excited about the way the weather gets warmer and the streets get greener, some individuals see April as a great money-saving opportunity.
Let’s go over some of the most frugal ways to earn cash this month!
Opt for Nonperishable Foods
You can find some brand-name products for a good discounted price during a 12-week sales cycle in April, which is a great way to stoke up with nonperishable foods for another 3 months until the beginning of another sale. And don’t worry about their quality: such food items, like canned foods, pasta or grains don’t rot and get spoiled.
April might not be the warmest month of spring, although the weather looks much more appealing than the one in February. Thus, there’s no particular need to turn your heat on maximum anymore.
We’re all aware of the incredible costs of utility services and saving little by little each day could drastically save you good cash. By the way, in order not to let heat escape out of your house, try to seal up vents.
Energy on Minimum
The annual time switch in March is another reason for staying more frugal in April. Right now, you won’t need to have your lights on until late in the night. Thus, less electricity is being used around the house and you save money! Additionally, you can read more tips on how to save money on electricity.
Creative Way to Reduce Water Costs
Even though it seems like saving on water bills at times when water usage has to speed up because of more frequent showering and garden works, is impossible, there would always exist creative alternatives to using water from somewhere else besides your water tap.
One of them is purchasing a water butt used for collecting water after rains. This way you can water your garden plants without any additional water spending.
Time for Garage Sale
Remember the March article about spring cleaning? Some of its useful recommendations help you deal with the mess made up from piles of used and old goods in your garage or the house attic.
Therefore, there are thousands of garage sales in every American neighborhood in spring, especially around April. Try organizing your own sale of items you no longer need, or simply use Craigslist to sell them online.
Clean up Your Wardrobe
If you tend to keep all of your old and non-used clothes hoping that someday it would come in handy, stop it. Most of the clothes just keep getting dusty in your closet instead of simply being thrown away or sold. The second option is also a good way to make some money. Just take a picture of your cloth items and post it on Depop for quick selling.
Free Dog Walking
Have no time for walking your pet every single day? Then arrange turns with friends/neighbors or use websites like BorrowMyDoggy.com to find volunteers who wouldn’t charge for their dog walking.
Even though it charges a small fee for a sign-up, it’s much cheaper than paying for a whole service.
Natural Food from Your House
Keen on healthy and natural foods? Then why not grow it in your own kitchen? Since all of those organic seeds and vegan products are really expensive, it makes sense to grow organic products by yourself.
