If you are anything like me, you will notice that your social calendar starts to fill up come mid-June. After that, it’s something of a roller coaster ride all the way through until September. Now I’m not saying this isn’t fun, because holidays, weekends away, and get together with old friends are the best. However, you may be scratching your head and wondering how to pay for all this? Happily, if you check out the advice in the guide below you won’t have too many problems in this area. Read on to find out more.
Are you subscribing your budget away?
Subscription boxes and packages are everywhere these days from Birchbox to Netflix. You can even get you dinners prepared for you with cooking boxes. However, while they are super convenient, and it’s always fun to get a surprise gift to yourself through the post box, you have to ask whether they are they the best use of your money?
Sadly, the answer is probably not, especially when you have multiple subscriptions to pays for. Or even worse you and your SO or housemate are doubling up because one of you forget to cancel it when you moved in together! Arghhh!
Of course, the solution here is easy, and it’s to cancel the one that you don’t need. This means taking some time to work out which one you use and the most and ditch the rest. Then you can save what you would have spent on them for summer revelry.
Claim back what you are owed
Next, too many of us go through life not claiming money that we are genuinely entitled to. It may be in a small way like that bag of Primark clothes you didn’t try and can’t find time to take back a to get or refund, or it may be in a big way like not claiming for a situation in which you suffered medical negligence.
Obviously, in both cases, this is money that could be put to better use living your best life during the summer. To that end, it’s always a good idea to contact professionals like The Specter Partnership to help you with any legal claim you may have. Also, and if you possibly can, get those clothes returned ASAP, or at the very least bung them on eBay and recover some of the purchase cost to put towards your summer holidays.
Lastly, you can’t have failed to notice how on trend it is right not to be veggie or vegan? In fact, your social media is probably bombarded with all the benefits for your health, for the planet, and your pocket, and it’s this last one that we are particularly interested in.
Vegan food is not only delicious and healthy, but cheaper too!
Yup, that’s right vegetarian, and vegan diets are on the whole lot cheaper than ones that contain meat and dairy products. There is no shortage of delicious recipes to follow either, so it makes this the perfect time to make the swap. Then you can tuck away the saving you make on your weekly shopping and put them towards summer fun instead.
