Save Money this Labor Day Weekend

Though fall might not officially begin until September 23rd, for many of us, Labor Day Weekend marks the unofficial end of summer. It is an excellent weekend to soak up the last sunshine and spend time with family and friends. This year in Detroit is also going to be a hot one! While you enjoy the weekend, here are some ways to ensure you can be efficient about it. Have fun, and not break the bank.


Grilling is a summer staple, so it only makes sense to pull the grill back out on this last summer weekend. However, eating juicy hamburgers and hot dogs isn’t the only reason to grill this Labor Day Weekend. By cooking outside, you will not be unnecessarily heating the inside of your home, which means it will stay cooler with less work from the air conditioner.

Be Mindful of the Lights

With longer days and bright sunshine, it is not as necessary to have as many household lights on. Take advantage of the natural light this weekend, before things get dark earlier this fall, and use less electricity. Also, always be sure to turn the lights off when leaving a room.

Watch Out for the Door

When the air conditioner is running, it is best to keep all windows and doors closed to keep that cool conditioned air inside the home. Sometimes when we have parties or guests over, it can be hard to manage. Therefore, keep an eye on doors and windows to ensure they are shut. You can also try directing guests to only stay inside or outside by placing all the food in one area. Another idea is to put a sign on doors reminding guests (nicely) to close it behind them.

Get Wet!

Whether you have a pool, live near a lake, or have a sprinkler in the backyard, enjoy all that summer has to offer by cooling down with water.
