Weekend Budgeting Tips

These Weekend Budgeting Tricks Will Be a Treat!

Halloween weekend is all fun and games, but that doesn't mean your budget has to go out the window. Don't worry, there's no need to cut out the fun. Use these tips to keep your finances sweet.

  1. Try one of nine ways to save and be social — Getting together with friends doesn't have to mean big dinners and fancy restaurants. Get outside and organize a barbecue, a potluck, or a game night.
  2. Shop where the deals are — Club warehouses really are full of some great low-cost finds. So, with your extra free time this weekend, stock the house on essentials and groceries for a whole lot less.
  3. Learn to do something new — Instead of spending on unnecessary items, learn how to do something valuable. Teach yourself to sew or cook a favorite recipe, and learn a little more self-sufficiency to save you later on.

Get the rest of my cost-saving weekend tips after the jump.

  1. Maximize your memberships — Rather than digging into your wallet, take advantage of resources you already have. Consider getting a group together for yoga at your gym or unwind and catch up on your Netflix queue.
  2. Become a high- and low-end mix master — This weekend, and always, let the rules of mixing high and low keep you from excessive spending.
