Spending quality time with your kids doesn't have to cost a bundle. Here are 20 inexpensive ideas for a fun summer.

Have a picnic. Find a cool shady spot, spread out a blanket and have a picnic.

Play games outdoors, Frisbee, catch, hide and seek, or make up games.

Lie in the grass and watch the clouds make shapes.

Pick up litter. “Adopt” an area in your neighborhood and keep it litter free.

Start a collection. Look for “cool” rocks, bugs, leaves, sea shells, (depending on your area), these are all free and fun to look for and collect. Coins or stamps are also fun to collect.

Dance. Turn on some music and “rock & roll”. This is not only fun, but good exercise too!

Read and write poetry. Encourage your children to be creative! Have a poetry reading.

Explore thrift shops.

Dress up in costumes, have fun applying make up and crazy hair styles. Let your kids “do” your hair/make up.

Attend the county fair. Enter a hand made item at the fair.

Go camping. If you don’t have time/finances to take a “vacation” type camping trip, camp in your yard or living room. Bring out the sleeping bags and spend the night.

Learn magic tricks. Who doesn’t love a good “trick”!!

Fly a kite.

Go to the library. Teach your child how the Dewey Decimal System works!

Make a video and post it on You Tube.

Wise Spending

Spend Spend, Spend, this is what the government wants you to do with your economic stimulus rebate. They are counting on you to shuffle on down to the closest retail store and leave your money. Mega retailer, Wal-Mart, reported a 4% increase in sales for the month of May, and determined that the increase was a direct result of the stimulus rebate.

If you are still sitting on your rebate check, good for you!! A better way to spend your rebate check would be not to “spend” it at all. Here’s an idea: SAVE your rebate check!! Prepare for the unknown, start or add to an emergency fund. Experts say that your emergency fund should equal six months of your income, does it?

Consider buying a Certificate of Deposit, mutual fund or adding the lump sum to your 401K. 66% of Americans don’t have enough stashed away to live comfortable during retirement.

Try decreasing your credit card debt. If you can’t seem to get that credit card debt paid down, now is the time, use your stimulus rebate to decrease or eliminate this debt.

15 Ways To Multi Task Your Toothpaste And Save

Burns Toothpaste is great for soothing a burn. Toothpaste has a instant cooling effect on burns and helps to relieve the burning feeling, but don’t use it on open blisters. If you burn your tongue, toothpaste will relive the burning in your mouth.

Polisher/ Jewelry Cleaner You can use toothpaste as a silver polisher or a jewelry cleaner. If necessary, let the paste sit on the jewelry over night and then wash it off. Don’t use toothpaste on pearls.

CD/DVD Buffer Squeeze a little paste on a cotton ball, wipe it over the disc to remove scratches off CD's and other plastic like surfaces.

First Aid For Bites Mosquito, bugs, ant bites and bee stings dab a little over the bit, it will sooth the itching.

Crayon Marks On Walls Rub the marks with some toothpaste and a damp rag, then wipe clean. Voila! Crayon marks will disappear.

Spackle If you are out of Spackle, use it as a quick remedy to fill in nail holes, etc. in your walls.

Acne Dab a small amount on a pimple before bed. Wake up and the zip will be gone! If you have sensitive skin, beware.

Nail/Cuticle Cleaner Put this miracle goo on a nail brush and clean under your fingernails!

Shoes/Sneakers You can clean leather shoes with toothpaste by squirting on a little bit where the shoe is scuffed. Then rub with a soft cloth. Wipe it all clean with a damp cloth. Clean rubber soles using an old toothbrush to scrub off scuff marks.

Kitchen Deodorizer Sour milk smells, rancid smelling water bottle/baby bottles, or long forgotten science experiments can be washed with toothpaste and rinsed and the smell will be gone!

Deodorize Hands Wash stinky hands with toothpaste to get out garlic, onion, fish or other bad smells regular soap will not control.

Defog Goggles/Glasses Toothpaste will “defog” your goggles, mirrors, windows or glasses. Wipe it on, clean it off, and the surface will stay fog free.

Cleaner Use some paste and an old toothbrush to scrub the grout/tile/mold due in your bathroom! Cleans, sparkles and smells great!

Remove Ink or Lipstick Stains from Fabric Rub the paste onto the stain for a few seconds, and rinse. This process may have to be repeated several times to do the trick!

Clean Your clothes Iron Scrub the gunk off of the bottom of your iron with a mild abrasive, non-jell toothpaste. Of course, make sure your iron is cool!!!
