A Frugal Way to Summer

A frugal way to Summer… Think about all the things you can save money doing…   Summer on a budget is not always the easiest thing to tackle.  All parents want to show their kids a good time and take them on fun road trips.  But not all parents can afford extensive trips, and certainly not when it comes to buying plane tickets for 2, 3, or even 4 kids!  A nice solution and a cheap solution to family quality time is to head to the park and just hang on the swings.  Or dig in the sand if you have a beach or sandpit around.  Remember back before TV and video games?  Families used to spend time together.  Not only was this a more simple way, a better way, but definitely a cheaper way.  If you really want to save money and do something fun for the summer, just relax, go to the pool and chill.  You don’t have to spend a lot to really enjoy your summer as a family.

Riding bikes is a great way to pass the beautiful days of summer.  This is definitely a cheap way to spend the afternoon and get some excersise in along the way.  Kids are more proned to gaining weight these days.  Do your part as a parent and teach your kids early that not only do you not need to spend a lot of money to have a good time, but you don’t have to sit on the couch and do nothing either!   Some kids would through a fit if you took their video games away.  Our new president Obama is encouraging our youth to put down the video games and pick up a bike!  He, along with other parents agree that we could always bring more excersise into our daily routines, not to mention family time. Remember family time?
