Frugal ways to have fun on a budget this summer

Summer is a time of year jam-packed with adventure! However, between travel, summer childcare, and social activities, it can also be costly. Here are a few ways to enjoy your summer without breaking the budget:

Take a trip to your local library

In addition to books, movies, magazines, and newspapers, the library is a great resource for activities. Check out your library’s event calendar. Many offer free concerts, plays, and activities for kids. Additionally, libraries often offer free or discount coupons for local museums and other attractions.

Get outdoors

Try an outdoor activity you haven’t done before, such as disc golf or geocaching. You could also dust off your bike and hit a local trail or path. The initial investment in these is around $15 or less and they are family friendly.

Get your hands dirty

If you don’t have space for a garden, plant a tomato plant or a few herbs in a pot. For extra savings, check big retail gardening stores for plastic or clay pots that might be headed for the dumpster. Seeds can be collected for free from friends, family, or plants growing in your neighborhood or park. If you are looking for a bigger project, many areas have community gardens, where you can volunteer your time while getting some sun, fresh air, and veggies.

When it comes to summer activities, it’s not about the cost, it’s about the experience, the memories, and enjoying time with loved ones.

What’s your favorite frugal summer activity?
