The temperature is rising.. here are some tips on how to keep cool!

_main_water_0How to Keep your Home Cool

Hot weather can drive up your energy bills, and an inefficient air conditioning unit can leave you sweaty and uncomfortable. Here are some ways to keep your home cool and save money in the process.

Close your blinds.
According to The Family Handyman, around 30 percent of heat comes in through your windows. By closing your blinds and drawing the curtains you can keep unwanted heat out.

Grill your food.
Avoid using the oven and stove. Clear skies allow you to fire up the grill and get more use out of outdoor furniture.

Switch to CFLs.
Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) cut lighting costs as well as cooling costs. They give off very little heat, and when your house feels uncomfortably warm, every small improvement helps. 

Allow air flow.
Keep interior doors open to let air flow freely between rooms, which helps regulate the cool air. Open windows in the evening to bring the cool breeze in.

Are millennials slackers or geniuses?

thFJJ9U32N

Millennials often get a bad rap for being unemployed, living with their parents, and putting off getting married or having kids, but, according to an article from Business Insider, there’s more to 18- to 30-year-olds than meets the eye!

  1. Millennials do most of their shopping in physical stores.  Sure, they are tech savvy and frequently shop online. But millennials haven’t completely abandoned stores and shopping malls. They like to touch and feel products before they buy them, and still appreciate the experience of shopping in a store. In fact, millennials still complete 54% of shopping in physical stores, according to the report.
  2. Millennials save more money than the national average. “Contrary to popular rhetoric regarding a highly challenged consumer who may be burdened with debt and living ‘paycheck to paycheck,’ our survey of millennials suggests the majority of the demographic (74% of total responses) saves money every month compared to 26% who do not,” the report says.
  3. Millennials are planning to buy homes. They are delaying home-buying and marriage and kids, but they are planning to get to those life milestones eventually. When asked what they are saving for, millennials said (1) a house, (2) a car, and (3) retirement.
  4. Millennials aren’t just relying on Uber and Lyft to get around. They are actually buying cars. Like with homeownership, many millennials have delayed purchasing cars. But car buying among this demographic is rapidly rising and will continue to grow, according to the report. About 64% of millennials plan to buy a car in the next two years, and most of those who don’t plan to buy a car already own one, according to the data. Only 5% of respondents said car-sharing services like Uber and Lyft serve as a replacement for owning a car.

Think long term for your benefit!

5 Steps Toward Early Retirement

Retiring early is all about financial habits and willpower. If you are willing to make the necessary changes, early retirement can be achieved no matter where you are in your career now.

  1. Start today

There’s no better time to start than now. Simple as that.

  1. Pay off debt

It’s hard to start saving when you have thousands of dollars of debt looming overhead. Buckle down and make significant payments on debt to buy yourself the freedom to start investing in your retirement.

  1. Create a plan

Stick to a plan that you can contribute to monthly and track your progress. Decide how much you want to have saved up by the time you retire, then decide at what age you would like to retire. Now calculate how much you need to save each month in order to meet this goal. (You may need to consult a financial planner.)

  1. Spend wisely

Really think about your needs and limit spending on expensive items that only bring temporary satisfaction, such as a new car, boat or RV.

  1. Think long-term

Living on less will help you down the line, so learn to downsize. Every little bit helps. Bring your lunch to work, ride your bike more often or trade your expensive annual vacation for a stay-cation.
