Whether you enjoy the extra daylight or curse legislators for the loss of one hour’s sleep, Daylight Saving Time is good for at least one thing: saving you money.
It’s a good reminder to evaluate your home’s energy efficiency and consider making some upgrades, like investing in a programmable thermostat or switching out incandescent bulbs for LED lights.
DECREASE FITNESS COSTS
Consider freezing that gym membership and use the great outdoors to get your fitness fix.
EXTEND ENTERTAINMENT OPTIONS
Swap happy hours for afternoon get-togethers hosted at your house and ask guests to bring something to share to cut costs.
MAKE EXTRA MONEY
To pad your budget or help expedite your debt-payoff goals, use the added daylight to pick up a side gig.
