Instead of a bookstore, try a library

Libraries don't just offer the books we remember from our childhood. Today, they also are sources of money-saving fun for all ages, says Isra Hashmi, who has written about going from fancy to frugal in her blog, TheFrugalette.com.

Libraries offer a frugal entertainment alternative with their extensive music and DVD collections. Children and teens alike can be kept busy with library story-reading, craft projects and singalongs.

Some libraries even offer passes to museums and attractions. These passes can be checked out, just like a book. "In Boston, just for having a library card, I've gotten free passes to the aquarium and zoo," Hashmi says.
