The turning of the calendar into 2017 marks the official end of the holiday season. If you have a family, this is usually the time of year you try and cut back to make up for the previous months spending spree. We wanted to get you started with some of our favorite money saving tips that you can implement in this upcoming year. 

Implement The 30 Day Rule
If there is something you want like a television or home workout equipment, give the decision time to settle in. Contemplate the purchase for 30 days and if the desire is still there, go ahead and buy what you want if the funds are applicable. But if you buy with impulse, you'll often wind up spending money on things you don't really need.
Upgrade Food Storage 
Eating out is always enjoyable, but it can get expensive if you do it too often. When there's an opportunity to save, you should take advantage, and a chest freezer might be something that can benefit you. If you have multiple mouths to feed, buy in bulk at BJ's or Costco and store on-sale meat in the downstairs chest freezer. This way you always have meals ready to go to help you avoid the restaurant tab.
Calm Your Credit
If you're in the market for a new home or car in 2017, you should avoid other large scale purchases. You want to keep your credit in tact so that nothing can interfere with you and your dream home. Major appliances, entertainment systems and big vacations should wait until after you've moved into a new home. 
Upgrade Plumbing Fixtures 
  • Toilets- Upgrade to a toilet that offers a dual-flush option. It will dispense only the necessary amount of water to dispose of specific types of waste rather than using excess water for no reason. 
  • Faucets- Upgrading your faucet is a great way to save the environment and your wallet. When you find the look you want, make sure it meets the EPA standard for flow-rate of 1.5 gallons per minute or less. 
  • Shower heads- Did you know that your shower accounts for almost 20% of your home's water usage? While this number is high, there are ways you can reduce it. One of them being an upgrade to a WaterSense approved shower head that uses up to 50% less water.
