Very often there are frugal activities in our own communities that go unattended. Just in the last month my town had a garden tour, children’s event at the park, dog agility event at the fairgrounds and Earth Day celebration in town center. What kind of events are going on in your town this summer?

Last Sunday I was able to attend the Makers Faire, a fabulous event hosted by Make Magazine that brings creators and innovators together to showcase their talents.
