1. Gym membership
You've seen it happen: Once the New Year's resolutions fall far by the wayside and the fitness fanatics ditch the gym during the summer to take advantage of warm weather and outdoor activities, gyms are a lot less crowded. This leaves gym owners scrambling for new members, resulting in incentives like waived initiation fees and in some cases, a free month for new members. Visit your nearest health club and get a membership now -- and actually use it so you aren't wasting your money.
2. Kids' movies
Beat the heat by getting your kids a cheap seat at the movie theater. Several theater companies offer discount or free movie passes for kids' favorite flicks.
When home improvement is on your to-do list, head to the local home improvement retailers to stock up on paint. Home improvement retailers offer discounts on interior and exterior paint to entice customers away from their competitors.
You can thank Dad for this one for low hardware prices during June and December since it makes a great gift for dads and other handy men. Now's the time to get Dad that cordless drill he's been eyeballing or compare prices on that expensive table saw.
5. The great outdoors
Every year, the National Parks Service offers a free day to several national parks across the country. This year, fees are waived for over 100 parks on Saturday, June 9 for Get Outdoors Day. Keep in mind that close to 400 national parks never charge fees, so get out there and enjoy the great outdoors on the cheap!
Champagne and sparkling wine are celebration staples especially during summer wedding season. Take advantage of sales and pick up a bottle of bubbly to add a flair of sophistication to your next backyard barbeque. (Be sure to research brands before buying since not all Champagne is vegan-friendly.)
7. Seasonal produce
Why buy frozen when you can buy fresh? Summer is the best time to buy fresh fruit, both locally and from your chain supermarket. Make a stop at the weekly farmers' market to stock your kitchen with farm-fresh fruit and veggie picks.
