Produce that’s in season is less expensive than produce that’s out of season. Stock up on squash, pumpkins, cranberries, apples, kale, mushrooms and sweet potatoes.
Soups and stews are two of the cheapest meals to make. It’s a great way to use up leftovers or get rid of produce.
If you live in a state with cold winters, October is the time to tune up your furnace. Make sure it’s running properly and cleaned of any debris. This small task can save you hundreds over the course of the winter.
In most states, the weather is nice in October. Save big on your electric bill by opening a few windows and shutting the AC off.
Again, the weather’s beautiful! Bike or walk whenever possible. Set up carpools with your coworkers or your kids’ classmates' parents for school.
Columbus Day is Oct. 14. A number of stores and restaurants will be offering exclusive discounts on Columbus Day only. Don’t miss out!
Summer’s over and winter’s upon us — which means stores are moving out all their summer clothing (and putting it on clearance!) to make room for winter apparel. Though you may need to spend a little now, you’ll make up for it when you don’t need to buy summer clothes for you or the kids come May.
Savings: $50+ (next summer)
