Are you ready for the big weekend? My guess is that the next couple days will be pretty full of barbecues, swim parties, and a few fireworks. Personally, I’m hoping for some yummy cupcakes. I’m on this cupcake kick these days and am starting to try my hand at making them deliciously decadent — and working on those frosting techniques [5], too.

Summer can be so fun. Especially if you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Case in point: I’ll be baking those cupcakes myself, not buying them for $4 each at the froo-froo bakery.

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to enjoy lazy days of summer. The following are some frugal summer tips from the archives. Happy reading!
