New Beginnings: Spring has Sprung

Spring is a season of change. The days get warmer and sunnier. The snow melts and the grass turns green again. The flowers start to bloom. It feels like a new beginning. Is it time to start something new?

Maybe there’s a new activity or hobby you’ve been thinking of trying? How about a vacation? Visiting a friend? Going to that new store or restaurant? Getting involved in a new activity?

Revisiting New Year’s Resolutions is a good idea too. On New Year’s, people often feel sentimental about the old year ending and the start of something new. It’s easy to make a resolution, but sticking to it for the next 365 days is a lot more challenging. Did you make a resolution to exercise more, lose weight, or something like that? It’s a good time to try it again.


Spring cleaning surely is not fun, but it can be necessary after a long cold winter. The yard may need some tending to. It’s amazing how leaves and other things can accumulate in your yard, even the neighbor’s recyclables. Windows might need a good washing. Some of us do a thorough cleaning job inside the house too, vacuuming, scrubbing, putting away some of the winter clothes and getting some out for spring.

It’s also a good time to review finances and budgets. What expenses can you cut out or cut back on? Are you saving enough for things like retirement? Do you have any money set aside in an emergency fund, just in case something comes up?

Maybe you want to add more money to your household budget? That can be tough because you’re already so busy with other things and only have time here and there. Maybe just your evenings are free? The great thing about CashCrate is it can fit into any schedule. You make money whenever you want to, for as long as you want to. Complete surveys, offers, watch cash videos and more on your own time, when you decide to. It’s a great way to add extra money to your budget.

Spring is a time of change and you can make it a change for the better. Enjoy the warmer weather and the sunnier days.
