5 Steps to Weathering a Winter Storm

With winter storm Nemo coming through the eastern part of the country, I thought I’d share a few tips on saving money during a winter storm.  So grab a cup of hot coca and give this list a look over.

  1. Be prepared.  Plan ahead when you know a storm’s coming so you’re ready to get through the storm.  Pick up anything outside that you don’t want to get buried beneath the snow where it might be lost or broken if unintentionally ridden over or stepped on.  Move your car someplace safe and out of the way of snowplows or tree limbs about to snap, etc. to prevent damage.  Pull the shovel out of storage (and the sleds for once the storm has passed).
  2. Be stocked up.  Before you see the forecast that says a blizzard is headed your way, you should already have the staples on hand that you’ll need in the case of an emergency weather situation.  If you keep these things on hand, you can buy them when they go on sale and save money (and not last-minute in the crazy mad rush everyone makes to the store just before a storm hits).
  3. Bundle up.  When the temperatures start dropping, instead of running to the thermostat, throw on a sweater.  Then sit on the couch wrapped in a warm blanket with a hot drink and a good book.  You now have an excuse to sit and relax.  If anyone asks, you’re not just sitting around, you’re saving money!
  4. Bundle up your house/apartment/igloo.  If you haven’t properly insulated your house, then this is another reminder that you need to.  Proper insulation will help save you money on heating costs.  If you live in an apartment and can’t make these sorts of chances or the storm is already here and it’s too late to insulate, draw the curtains to keep the cold out (I suggest thick, heavy curtains to really block the cold air).
  5. Be safe.  It is really important to be safe, especially in the bad conditions of a winter storm.  Roads get slippery and accidents happen, don’t drive if you don’t have to.  If the electricity goes out, it is generally safer to use a flashlight than candles, no need to add house fire to the list of things going wrong.  Look in on elderly neighbors to make sure their alright, maybe they would like to see the new hand shadow tricks you’ve learned! Ultimately, use common sense; don’t go out if you don’t absolutely have to, sit under that warm blanket and enjoy a hot beverage as you watch the snow fall.

Here is a basic list with just a few items necessary to get you through the next blizzard:

  • Water
  • Food – some of it should have at least some nutritional value, so a cupboard full of bags of Cheez doodles doesn’t count.  Also, some of it shouldn’t require cooking, if the power goes out.
  • Flashlights/batteries – this will be necessary for making hand shadows on the wall for entertainment once the electricity goes out.
  • Radio – to hear the news or for backup entertainment when the hand shadows thing gets old.
  • Charged cell phone or corded land-line –in case you need to call anyone and the power goes out, both of these should still work, as a cordless land-line probably would not.

How to Save on Entertainment

One of my favorite places is the public library.  In each town that I have lived in, I have found the nearest library and got my own library card.  That’s because at libraries there are so many free things you can borrow, like books, CD’s, magazines, movies, video games, and more.  One library that I go to even lets you borrow an eReader!  This definitely saves money by borrowing instead of buying.

Libraries often have free or inexpensive events and services as well available to members of that community.  There are events for kids, teens, adults, and the whole family.  Some recent events at my library are story times for kids, Scrabble games for adults, and movie night for anyone interested.  Each of these are free and a great way to save some money on entertainment, get out of the house, and meet people from your neighborhood.

So before you buy that book you have been hearing about, or pay to go out to the movies, check out what they have at your local library!

Do you go to your local library? What services do they offer that you enjoy?

The Best Tip to Save Money Anywhere

One of the best tips to snagging great deals, however or where ever you’re shopping, is to plan ahead.  Whether it is at the supermarket, online shopping, or at a yard sale, having a plan before you get there and make a purchase will most likely save you money.

For instance, I have often gone to a yard sale that I’ve passed just for fun, not having a plan in mind of what I need in particular.  When I’d get there, I would forget what I actually needed, miss a deal or come home with something I don’t need instead.  On the other hand, when I knew I was looking to buy a stand for my TV, I saw one that was too big to fit up the stairs to my apartment.  I knew this because I had taken measurements with me.  If I had bought it, I would have been in a real pickle trying to get it in the house.

So before heading out the door, make a plan by thinking about what you need and any specifics if there are any.  Come prepared with the measurements of the window treatments you’re looking for at a yard sale, or coupons for the items you need at the store.  This might not always be the case, but in some circumstances this can help you nab the best deal.

Have you ever made any impulse purchases you regretted later?  Were you ever in a situation like this that would have gone better had you planned ahead?
