I know some of us are wondering what the heck happened to summer, since July is halfway over and June seems like a distant memory. Here in Oregon it took summer a little longer to get here and we had a few days of warm weather mixed with weeks of cool, rainy days. Finally, we are languishing in the 80s and we realize that we’ll be putting away our shorts and tank tops soon enough and putting sporting boots again. I’m trying not to think about that, since I’m extending my summer by taking a trip to Cali where even in the winter it’s still spring temps. It might be weird that I’m looking forward to sunny skies and 70-80 degree days in October, but as much as I love fall colors, our winter and fall lasted about two months too long here, so I’ll take it where I can get it.

There's still time to get some of this in your life this summer!
With summer coming to a close for many of you and kids going back to school very soon, I wanted to write about some last minute ways to get out and enjoy the weather and some family bonding while still not spending a fortune. Yesterday, I posted about affordable late summer travel on FareCompare and today I have some other ways to stretch your dollars.
