      I started planning “our summer” months ago. I checked out where we

      want to go on the net and print off the price list so I know how much

      it’s going to cost etc. We are doing tons of day trips and days at

      the beach are cheap! We pack a lunch and all our beach toys etc and

      stop at the farmers market on the way to look around and buy some

      fresh fruit and veggies. I also have a piggy bank that I use to save

      money just for our summer outings. I try to put $20.00 pay cheque in

      it and am selling stuff we don’t need any longer and putting the

      money in there from that. I made $17 the other night and it felt good

      to add it to the pot!
