If you're trying to keep a tight watch on your funds--or even if you aren't--here are some fun ideas to do with the family (or friends):
*Fly a kite (When was the last time you did?)
*Have a picnic at a local park...or even your own backyard.
*Do a fall leaf mural
*Surprise a friend or family member and celebrate a half-birthday.
*Visit a bookstore with a friend or date and pick out a book for each other, telling why you chose that particular one.
*Play a game you haven't played in a while.
*Go for a bike ride.
