Look over there—see it? Just over that Labor Day hill? It’s fall. Here, three small ways to wrap up your summer in style—and on budget.

1.Clean the air filters on your air conditioners and furnace. Not only will this reduce the chance of a fire or premature appliance death, a quick rinse under the kitchen tap can can lower your energy consumption by 5-15%—that’s year round, people.
2.Pick a budget, any budget. We’ve got a few you can try, so that three months from now, the holidays don’t crack your plastic.

3.Wear a seersucker dress with white wedges to a picnic, while you still have that end-of-summer glow. Take pix. Two months from now, when you’re wearing courduroys, you’ll be so happy you immortalized your gorgeous self.


Out of the Box
It seems like the first Labor Day was organized by a union and celebrated with a parade in New York City on September 5, 1882. Today we mostly celebrate with hot dogs. Get your federal barbeque safety guidelines here!
