Summer Savings

posted on Thursday, June 18, 2020

The summer of 2020 is going to be different than any other summer that you have been a part of, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start on your finances. Right now is a great time to build your savings and get some extra cash. We have provided you with 4 quick tips that you can utilize to get a jump start on your summer savings.

  1. Cut back on your entertainment budget:

    • As businesses slowly start to reopen this summer, it’s going to be pretty easy to cut back on your entertainment budget. Unfortunately, many popular summer attractions such as fairs, carnivals, concerts, etc. have been canceled or postponed. If this pertains to you, take advantage of the money that you aren’t spending on these events and put it towards your savings.

  2. Grocery shop smarter:

    • Take advantage of Hy-Vee’s weekly ads and their free mobile app to plan your grocery shopping list. These free Hy-Vee resources allow you to see the week’s best deals and coupons in just seconds. Then, make a shopping list and stick to it once you get to the store.

  3. Save $491 annually by switching to an independent insurance agent:

Midwest Heritage is a robust independent insurance agency that partners with a variety of top carriers to get you the coverage you need at a price you can afford.
