It’s hard to believe that school is out and kids are probably already started to get bored! UnfortunatelyFloridaweather is not nearly as conducive to fun, outdoor play as where I grew up. I know that the pool is about the only activity I want to do in this heat!

But, fortunately there are plenty of free or inexpensive options.

 Kids Eat Free

There are quite a few restaurants that have special “Kids Eat Free” days/times. Usually it’s one child free with the purchase of an adult entrée. You can check out Coupon Divas list here to see what is currently available in your area. This list is quite extensive so I have not verified each listing.

 These are just a handful of ideas to get you started on exploring some summer fun. Of course, we always have the beach nearby as well! If you would like to find some new and exciting things to do, pretend you are a first-time visitor in your town. Check out the local visitor’s guides and tourist information. Go to the Chamber of Commerce website and you should find a great deal of information.

 All You Magazine June Coupon List – InGoodCents has been kind enough to provide us a list of coupons that will be in Walmart’s All You Magazine that is on the newsstands now.  You can check it out here to see if you want to stop by and pick up a copy. I believe it retails for $2.49 per issue if you buy it at Walmart, but you can get a subscription for less.  However, I will tell you that sometimes the subscription version has less coupons than the newsstand version.

 Walmart Deals – usually puts up the best Walmart deals on Wednesday. It wasn’t up when I looked but you may want to check it out if you are headed to Walmart.
