I don’t know about you and your budget. But ours always feels like it gets hit hard in the Fall season. Fall sports, birthdays, teacher gifts, school supplies, and much more! Not to mention that Christmas is just around the corner.
I’m always looking for ways to save money in the Fall season. And I thought I would document my thoughts this year in order to help y’all out too!
Below are the ways I try to save money in the Fall:
{These are in no particular order}

Rhea Lana Consignment Sale – Oct 23-27th

Another way I save money on clothes and toys is by going to consignment sales. Rhea Lana’s sale is one of my favorites because of how large it is and the quality of the items. Last year I was able to get several of monogrammed dresses for my daughter for under $3 a piece! You can also make money by selling your items at this sale.

I gave myself the gift of Amazon Prime at the beginning of this year. It has paid for itself already and more! I love the free two day shipping on anything (as long as it’s labeled “prime”). I also have enjoyed having another way to watch shows and movies.

Meal Planning

I heart Eat at Home Cooks weekly meal plans very much! For as little as $1.15 a week (This is the price per week in the 12 month package), you will get a full weeks menu plan and a grocery list. You also get to choose from three types of plans – traditional, slow cooker, or whole foods. It really is a great deal! There are so many benefits to using a meal planner. But my two biggest reasons are – it keeps you from eating out all the time and makes life easier on you!

Right now Goldstar has discounted tickets to see Shrek, to go to LegoLand, 1/2 price tickets to Falcons games, and so much more! If you don’t have a free account – you will want to set this up. I never pay full price for tickets anymore since I got a Goldstar account.

Online Grocery Shopping

Kroger ClickList, Walmart Grocery Pickup
This is a new one for me. But I have been using the online options for groceries the last month. And I can’t believe how much money I have saved. Ordering online is making me very disciplined to only purchase items on my list. I don’t see anything else on the aisles and that has helped. You should try it for yourself!
