As the weather heats up, here are ways to make sure the summer months don’t burn a hole in your wallet. Expenses are sure to shift through the summer, so May is a great time to plan for them now.

Check Your Calendar: Summer often brings travel, celebrations, and events. Take account for your upcoming events now to factor them into your budget through the summer. Doing this ahead of time will help prevent last-minute financial surprises.

Swap Your Current Budget for a Summer Budget: Including your upcoming events, adjust your budget as needed through the summer. Keep any shift in expenses, like cooling costs, in mind as you map out your financial plans for the summer months.

Take Advantage of 529 Day: May 29 has been adopted by the college savings industry as “529 Day” to remind parents of future college students of the benefits to saving in a tax-advantaged 529 college savings account. Some states even offer promotions to boost 529 savings. Consider starting an account if you plan to help your children with college expenses.
