"Hey, moms! Are you dreading the summer because you know it's going to drain your wallet? I got you covered! We're not blowing the budget this summer. We're hitting our big financial goal still," Elyse begins, setting the tone for her money-saving mission.

"First things first, pack a lunch, snacks, and drinks everywhere we go. Get a cooler and pack it every single day. We're taking the ‘We have food at home’ to ‘We have food in the car.’ Exception: always budget for ice cream," she advises, emphasizing the importance of pre-planning to avoid overspending on dining out.

"We're hitting the park. It's 8 a.m. Parks are always open, at least most of them," Elyse continues, highlighting the affordability and accessibility of outdoor activities as an alternative to expensive attractions. "Next up, let's embrace hospitality! Invite friends over for meals instead of going out. It's cheaper and it's fun," she suggests, promoting socializing at home as a budget-friendly option for summer entertainment.

"Reuse last summer's clothes or find secondhand. We are not following every trend just because it's new. Let's be mindful of our spending," Elyse urges, encouraging a shift towards sustainable and budget-conscious wardrobe choices.

"And finally, let's keep it simple with a hose and a sprinkler or splash pads. Childhood fun doesn't have to be expensive!" Elyse concludes, advocating for the joy of outdoor play without the hefty price tag.

To which @Money Mentor - Elyse replied, "Yes." @Heather shared her plan, "Nj, here I got a zoo pass for my family (it’s a year and equal to 2 visits) and a beach badge will be doing that and sprinkler parks all summer." @Money Mentor - Elyse replied, "Yesss.

Always $ for ice cream." @Allyballybobally simply praised the ideas, sharing, "Love this! Great ideas." @duh_nita512 wrote, "Find a friend with EBT or WIC and take part in the museums for all programs." @cailey c aka rain! explained, "Some libraries have passes for state parks + people on disability can sometimes get in for free! Also, EBT has programs for museums and such in certain areas to be free or very cheap!"
