Families have a lot of expenses and while some are predictable, like household bills, others can come up unexpectedly, like new shoes. If you want to get replacement windows in Costa Mesa, CA for your home, you know the benefits of having them. But that doesn’t mean you have the money in the budget for them. Here are a few things you can do as a family to save money so you can put it toward the windows your home needs.
Search For Used Items
If your son needs equipment for his new sport of choice, that doesn’t mean you have to go to the sporting goods store and buy all new stuff. There are other kids in the school that tried the sport and grew out of their things. They might be willing to pass them along to you or sell them to you at a good, low price. You can also look at used stores or thrift stores to get bargains so you can save the money you would have spent for windows.
Raise/Lower The Air
There may be a few months out of the year where you have the heat on in California. During that time, try to keep the temperature a few degrees lower than normal and wear another layer inside. It won’t be as comfortable, but the old windows are causing drafts anyways. The money you save on bills can help you reach your goals of getting new windows sooner. In the summer, bump things up a few degrees for the same reason. You could also turn the thermostat up or down when you aren’t home to give you a similar effect and also overnight when you aren’t going to notice as much.
While it’s always exciting to go to the theaters and nothing beats a bucket of theater-quality popcorn, you can save a true bundle by staying home and using a streaming service to watch a movie your family wants to see. Pop your own popcorn and get some other snacks. You can pause the movie when people need bathroom breaks and talk and laugh as much through any scene you want.
