Another added, “One of the guys I work with also works at a golf course one day per week just for the perks.”

Check Out Disney

Working a few hours at Disney can get you free passes for summer.

One person said, “Disney loves its part-timers because their only benefits are a free Disney pass and a very small discount in the parks. Many of them also worked 4-6 hour shifts, which I noticed because they covered breaks for full-timers. Overall I’d say if you’re only working there twice a week for few hours, I’d consider that worth free Disney if you’d go enough to justify a pass but not enough to justify paying.”

And lastly, “I had a few coworkers at Disney that just worked weekends for the free passes.”

If you and your kids have been dreaming of going to Disney for so long, this could be a great thing to try.

Free Library Activities

A user suggested checking out what local libraries offer: “Check out your local library as they usually have a reading program for kids with free events to attend.”

This is an excellent way to develop the importance of reading in your children and have them enjoy some educational events.

Free Tickets

Another user added an amazing frugal living tip, “I know our local library gives out free tickets to the local museums. Also, the local museums have a day every month where you can get in free with your library card.”

And lastly, “My library does zoo passes and day-use state park passes! The state parks program is California-wide, so if you’re in CA, check your public library.”

Be sure to check with your local library if they have some perks attached to having a library card.
