My favorite frugal things about fall

by Karen on October 15, 2009

This is my absolute favorite time of year, and even though our weather isn’t quite as cool as I’d like it to be, it hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the season.

Fall isn’t just cozy and comfortable. It’s also frugal. Here are my favorite frugal things about my favorite season.

  • Finally opening the windows, airing out the apartment, and turning off the air conditioner. Hello, lower electric bills!
  • Warm oatmeal for breakfast. A huge canister lasts two weeks, and it only costs $3!
  • Big pots of soup that last all week.
  • The crunch of leaves under our feet during long morning walks bundled up in cozy sweaters.
  • Staying in on the weekends to watch a movie under the covers.
  • Bundling up on the couch to work on a quilting project.

What are your favorite frugal things about fall?

I love raking, especially when my kids were younger and would jump into the pile of leaves afterwards.

Best of all – leaf peeping is free and wonderful!

Going to the local orchard for ‘you pick’ apples!

Somehow we skipped fall and went straight into winter in DC! But this Monday I had the opportunity to travel to Boston and the view of the leaves from the plane was gorgeous. Definitely love places with seasons.

I know I’m a little slow on the uptake, but hurray for moving back home earlier than you thought! I’ve been out of pocket for the last few weeks due to craziness at work…but I’m back now!
