7 Tips For Saving Money This Summer

Summer is time to relax, travel, and enjoy the good life. But how to do that when everything seems to cost twice as much as it did a year ago?

In a June 2023 interview for City and Shore magazine, journalist Robyn A. Friedman asked Mari to share her favorite tips for saving money while still taking advantage of all that summer has to offer.

“Inflation has raised prices across the board,” said Mari. “But with proper planning and smart choices, you can stay on budget and still enjoy your favorite summer pastimes.”

For example, to save money on travel, plan a foreign expedition with friends. Mari spent two weeks in Paris and Aix-en-Provence in the South of France and rented out an entire home to split costs. “We had a lot of fun planning our meals and cooking together,” said Mari. “The markets are fabulous in France and we really enjoyed discovering new wines and recipes, in addition to saving money.”

Another tip? Don’t forget to plan ahead and include travel expenses in your budget, especially if you are at the age when summer means a lot of out-of-town weddings. “Those travel expenses, along with gifts, special outfits, and entertainment can really add up,” reminds Mari.
