      ** I also look for clearance racks at stores when I go

      shopping.

      ** I also plant garden so I get the fresh veggies and

      it takes alot of time, so kids stay busy helping.

      ** I can some of the stuff from garden so that helps

      with the cost over the winter

      ** We use ceiling fans alot in summer, but have air

      conditionner in front room(put sheet over doorway to

      hold in cooler air)

      ** I take kids to lake where they have a beach to swim

      at and lots of sand

      ** Take kids to park or school to play on play grounds

      ** Go fishing and dig our own worms so kids love that.

      ** My most fav way to save money in summer is

      YARD SALES!! I can’t wait to get started on them!!

      Later,
