Frugal Family Summer Outings
Fortunately, there are cheaper alternatives to expensive family outings this summer. They provide the opportunity to have just as much fun at a fraction of the cost. Some are even free.
Movies and Music:
Kids are often itching to see the newest releases at the movie theater. Doing so even once a month, however, can get pricey. One alternative in some areas is the drive-in. Admission is usually much cheaper than it is at a regular theater, and some let you bring your own drinks and snacks. Drive-ins usually show fairly new releases, so the kids can say they saw something that's not out on video yet.
