My husband and I have been trying to save money for the past few months.
We both want to save up to get a new house and we want to have a good amount of money saved for the down payment.
I really don’t love budgeting and saving money, but I know in the long run it will really help us to have the money put away for a new house. One thing that my husband and I decided to do was go a month without the HVAC system. We turned off the HVAC system and didn’t turn it back on for a full month. I know that might sound a little bit crazy, but I think it has been good for us to really save money this way. Also, it is the spring and the weather is always mild during April in the town that we live in. I love that we were able to turn off the HVAC system for the month and not really feel like we were suffering because the weather was so nice outside. I think that we might actually do this every year and turn our HVAC system off during April so that we can save money and give our HVAC unit a break. I never thought that we would be the kind of family that turns their HVAC system off for a month, but it has been really nice and I am looking forward to doing it again next year.
