Mine isn't so frugal. Going to the State Fair with my sister and her 3 kids. No we don't do the carnival rides and games. They will have other things to do. But admission and parking eat up almost 20$. Then food.

Semi-frugal here. We're spending the weekend at a friend's place near a trout fishing state park. Frugal because we won't be paying camping fees & I planned menus around what I already have at home. Not-so-frugal because of the gas down there (3 hrs. away). We'll also have to pay for trout tags, though that is minimal.

Our last outing before my youngest 2 start school on Wed., 8/11.

My dd is in a production of "Oklahoma!" so we'll be there each night.

I'm doing some school supply shopping and paying bills. That should nix any other spending right in the bud. :0( But that's ok. I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

We are heading to a local lake to their beach, its only $1 a person to swim so super cheap. However it is right next to a chocolate factory so will probably make a stop there too!

We are going to the local metropark for a Monster Truck display on Sunday. It only costs admission to the park for the display. I may take Johnathon to the splash park today to go is free too.
