There is definitely no place like New England for one of the most picturesque times of year. With pumpkins all the craze everywhere be inspired to pump up your savings with our fall savings tips.

Save by winterizing your house: The transition from summer to fall brings moderate temperatures, causing less of a need to use your heat or air conditioning units to stay comfortable. Long sleeves, sweaters and sweatpants, take advantage of dressing in layers at home to keep warm while you can before the need to turn up the heat arises. Pioneer Valley Credit Union is a partner of the MassSave HEAT Loan program providing 0% loans of up to $15,000 designed to help you to make energy efficient upgrades. Through the program you can receive a no cost home energy assessment geared towards improving efficiency and ensuring you are not throwing your money out the door because of much needed upgrades. 

Save by enjoying low cost activities with the family: Going to a professional ball game, the movies or taking a grand family vacation sounds fun but can be extremely costly. Some cost saving ideas for enjoying time with the family can include; going apple or pumpkin picking, raking the leaves and turning them into a craft project, watching a movie or the big game at home or baking pumpkin muffins. The possibilities are endless, not only will you have the enjoyment of creating great memories, you can also pump up the savings by enjoying low cost fall family fun.

Save by preparing for the holidays: Yikes, the holidays are almost here again! It seems the holidays continue to creep up on everyone year after year. Members who have a Holiday Club will be jumping for joy in the coming weeks when their annual payout arrives.
