How to Do Hot Girl Summer Without Breaking the Bank
Updated: May 15
Summer is a time to have fun and enjoy life, but it can also be an expensive season. If you're looking to have a Hot Girl Summer without breaking the bank, here are some tips to help you save money and still have a great time.
What is Hot Girl Summer?
For those who may not be familiar with the term, Hot Girl Summer is all about embracing your confidence, living your best life, and having fun with your friends. It's a celebration of self-love and empowerment and all about enjoying the summer to the fullest. However, it's important to remember that having a Hot Girl Summer doesn't have to come at a high cost.
That's why we've got some great tips for you on how to stay financially skinny while still enjoying all that summer has to offer. We'll talk about how to find free or low-cost activities, how to find trendy clothes without breaking the bank, and even make some extra cash with a side gig.
Stay Financially Skinny
Staying financially skinny means setting a budget and sticking to it. It's important to keep track of your expenses and avoid overspending, so you don't end up with a pile of bills you can't afford. To stay financially skinny while having a Hot Girl Summer, consider these tips:
Look for free or low-cost activities in your area, such as outdoor concerts, picnics in the park, or hikes in nature.
Shop at discount stores or online retailers to find trendy clothes and accessories without breaking the bank.
Cook at home instead of eating out at restaurants, and try to pack your own lunches for work or outings.
Go visit friends and family in fun places instead of taking expensive vacations.
Stay away from alcoholic calories and expensive drinks. Instead, consider sticking to water, tea, or low-calorie alternatives. This can help you save money and stay healthy at the same time.

Get a Side Gig
If you want to make money without sacrificing your summer fun, consider getting a side gig. There are plenty of opportunities to earn extra cash during the summer, including:
Driving for Uber or Lyft
Working at a beach resort, bar, or club
Pet-sitting for people going on vacation
House-sitting through trusted platforms like TrustedHousesitters
Working at a country club, which often offers part-time positions that allow you to work and enjoy the amenities for free
Working on a boat as crew, can be a great way to have a unique and exciting summer while also earning some extra cash
Working at a concert venue for free shows
By finding a side gig that works for you, you can make money instead of spending money and still have fun.

With all that extra cash consider, paying down credit cards, building an emergency fund or investing
If you can earn extra cash this summer, consider using it to pay down credit card debt, build up your emergency fund, or invest. Paying down debt can save you money on interest in the long run. While building up an emergency fund can provide a financial cushion for unexpected expenses and help you avoid using credit cards or other high-interest loans.
If you're new to investing, it's essential to understand the basics before diving in.

We'll also cover the concept of risk and your risk profile so that you can make informed decisions about your investments.
In conclusion, having a hot girl summer doesn't have to mean spending a lot of money. With a little creativity and planning, you can have a fun and financially responsible summer.
