Spring is filled with new beginnings and fresh starts, and it’s the time that everyone starts looking ahead towards summer. While some may be working towards getting bikini ready, are your finances ready? Over the summer there’s so much fun to be had. Barbecues, beach picnics, and vacations are so much fun, but they’re also really expensive! You need to save money in Spring so that you have money to spend in Summer!
One of my favorite ways to save money in Spring is my vegetable garden. By growing your own food in your vegetable garden you can rest assured that it’s organic and high quality, but you’ll also save tons of money doing it! Make sure you also read about how to start a vegetable garden on a budget!

I don’t know what it is about Spring, but it always inspires us to open the windows, clean out the cobwebs, and go through everything. Put that spring cleaning energy to good use and make some extra money! As you’re going through your things, think carefully about what you can get rid of and how you get rid of it. If something is great, but just not right for you, try to consign it or put it on a buy/sell/trade site in your area. If you don’t feel right charging for it, donate it to a non-profit organization and save your receipt! Trust me, it’ll help once tax time rolls around again!
