Low Budget Summer Bucket List

With there being less than three weeks of school left, it definitely isn’t too early to start thinking about fun summer plans that will help solve the question, “so what do you want to do today?”. Deciding how to spend summer days is actually really hard, especially when cost is the main problem for most people. On days that aren’t devoted to working for money, your low budget summer bucket list should be in full swing. There are endless amounts of things to do this summer, without breaking the bank, and enjoying every possible second of summer break should be taken seriously.
