Here are some ideas you might try this summer.......
Visit a National Park - August 25th is the National Park Service birthday and there will be no entry fee!
Take a cut-rate class - many colleges offer lower tuition for summer classes
Save money - household decor and dishware are usually on sale in June. Furniture goes on sale in July, August will bring the back to school sales
Health Clubs - many lower their rates during the summer
Electric companies - many have a power cycling program in exchange for brief outages during peak usage hours. You get a credit on your monthly bill. I know IPL here in the Metro Indy area does it. We get $5 a month credit for participating
Build your log pile - stock up on firewood now while it's cheap
Flower garden - strategic planting can set a mood. Yellow, orange and re-orange gives a lively feel. Blue, violet and purple gives a soothing feel.
Skin cancer - tote your shade by carrying an parasol/umbrella - they can block 75% ov UV light
Killing ticks - throw your clothes in the dryer for 15 minutes. The heat will kill them - washing them won't
Paid to travel - idealist.org posts job openings in exotic spots like Ghana
Chopped - cooking schools might be offering a multi-day culinary bootcamp
Preschooler? - have them "paint" on a sidewalk or driveway with water on a sunny day and watch it disappear
School child? - may all the playgrounds or parks in a 10 mile radius, make a booklet, visit each one and write a review by interviewing your child.
Pre-teen? - try geocaching (need a smart phone with gps) via opencaching.com or geocaching.com
Bugs - mosquitoes are attracted to your breath. Deflect them on your patio with a breeze using a fan
Most important - get out there and do SOMETHING!!!! Just check the postings and links here at www.indianaresourcecenter.com under Entertainment for things to do in your area!
