5 Fall Equinox Savings Strategies

If you're not keeping note of planet Earth's revolution around the sun, then you wouldn't have noticed that yesterday, September 22nd, was the Autumnal (Fall) Equinox in the northern hemisphere.  Of course, if you remember your Earth science, then you'd also connect this to the opposite season beginning in the souther hemisphere, namely, spring.  Wherever you are, we had 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night yesterday.

Starting today, we in the north will begin to experience fewer hours of daylight, meaning, sunset and darkness creeping up even sooner.  Therefore, it's time we stop spending money like we're still in summer!  Below I've compiled some ideas that may save you a few bucks here and there, relating all of it to the start of the Fall season.

1.  Adjust your sprinkler timer.  Since they'll be progressively fewer minutes of daylight, your lawn and plants won't need as much water.  Take off a minute of watering this month, and another minute in October.

2.  Watch your car's tire pressure.  It's not as hot so your tire pressure while driving is going to be lower.  Lower tire pressure due to temperatures cooling results in your car using more gas as you drive around.  So make necessary adjustments in the coming months.

3.  NFL football is baaack!  DO NOT PAY to watch your team or all the games.  I know that some of you (men) like to buy the NFL Sunday Ticket and catch any game you want on Sunday.  But...did you know that you can livestream any game you want on Reddit?

4.  Put money aside for Black Friday starting today.  November 23rd is the day you can finally upgrade your phone, computer, tablet, or even television.  The savings will be there if you're a smart shopper, so put a little extra away starting at the end of this month.

5.  Buy your winter wear now in the Fall while prices are still marked for summer.  If you need a new jacket or sweater, go buy them now!

Alright, that's all I got.  If you have any Fall savings strategies or ideas, please comment below.  Thanks for reading!
