Winter Budget: Financial Preparation
With the change of the seasons, and preparation for “hibernation” these are some extra costs that you may have overlooked but are worth budgeting for.
-Electricity: The darker months of winter will more than likely require some extra lighting, and your use/cost of electricity may increase.
-Heating: Most forms of heating will be an extra cost, wood for a fireplace, gas for a gas heater, and extra electricity for an electric heater.
-Food: Grocery bills also tend to increase over these months.
