As many of you spend your weekends enjoying the warm weather, I’m sure staying frugal is the last thing on your mind. I find the summer months especially difficult for saving money because of all the fun things to do. With trips to the beach, days at the pool, water park getaways and vacations, it’s easy to exceed your budget. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself head over heels in debt by the fall.

Now, I’m not telling you to that you shouldn’t have fun and enjoy your summer. I’m simply saying that you should be smarter about where you choose to splurge and save. This way you can have the best of both worlds!
