How did your family do with your summer budget? Were you able to have fun for less this year?
We did pretty good!
We had a great summer! I signed the kids up for several free activities - Kids Bowl Free: kids under 12 can bowl 2 games everyday all summer long for free, and Kids Skate Free: kids under 12 can roller-skate twice a week for free, and the local ice-skating rink gave out free skating passes for every "A" on report cards. The kids were able to ice-skate at least once a week. They signed up for the summer reading program at the local library - my son won St. Louis Cardinal tickets and one of the girls won a $40 gift card to Build-a-Bear. We also got family memberships for the zoo and children's museum. No need to leave town.
Yes we were. It was a pretty good summer budget wise
We didn't have a budget but we did some local fun stuff which wasn't too bad in cost. =)

We did pretty well, though I did go over budget a little bit in July when we had an exchange student staying with us.
We saved money but not going very far....
Went camping instead of going to theme parks.
Yes, we did quite well this year. We had a few incidentals (an ER trip, some car repairs and such, but nothing too incredibly bad.
We spent a little more this year but that's just because we ended up with a little more. We took lots of trips to the local swm gym.
