Nothing beats summer in Montana. And you don’t have to spend much to make the most of it! Saving on summer fun doesn’t mean sacrificing the good times. You might just be able to fit a whole lot more by cutting your costs! Here are just a few ways to get the good times rollin’.
Easy Entertainment – use the library to check out videos, video games, and books. Billings Public Library has tons of free catalogs, movies, and online learning resources on their eLibrary! Dust off your library card, and make sure to check them out!
Frugal Food – make your lunches and dinners instead of eating out. You can find a ton of easy-to-make, budget-friendly meals and snacks all over the internet. Our favorite page to check out? BudgetBytes on Instagram has recipes of all sorts! Make meals delicious and stress-free without breaking the bank!
Make Money – clear the clutter and sell it at a garage sale to earn some extra money. If you’re crafty, try making & selling crafts or offer up services like packing, cleaning, yard work, or dog walking to earn a little extra. Host community garage sales or, if you’ve got a ton to get rid of, consider purchasing a booth at Billings Biggest Garage Sale!
