5 Ideas to Save Money in April

Five Ideas to Save Money in April

April starts this weekend, so how about five quick tips to save money this month?

1. There's nothing like the first weekend you can open up your windows and air out the house; it's the perfect time to spring clean. Gather up clothes you no longer wear or that no longer fit and bring them to a consignment shop. Same goes for cleaning out the clutter in your house, and either posting it on Craigslist or selling it at a yard sale. You'll have a cleaner, clutter-free home and the potential to make some money!

2. On April 15-16 and 22-23 during National Park Week, you can visit a national park for free! Plan a totally free day to explore, pack a lunch - all you need to spend money on is gas for the trip.

3. If you're expecting a tax refund, try out one of these six strategies to make the most of it.

4. For many homeowners, this is the time of year when it's not too hot and not too cold. Save some money and energy by avoiding heat and A/C, and using open windows or layers to regulate your temperature. Your utility bill will thank you!

5. Know what to buy. Smart shopping in April can save you money all year long. In need of a new winter coat? Don't wait until November, shop the clearance sales now for a serious discount. Anything associated with spring cleaning, such as vacuums, will see a lower price on older models as the new ones hit the shelves. For more ideas on what to buy this month, check in with LifeHacker.
