Free & Frugal Stuff for Summer

We know how much every penny you can save means to your bottom line so we’ve scoured the internet for some of the free & frugal stuff offered for moms & kids over the summer months.

I’ve included some freebies as well as some very low-cost, frugal items that we hope will make your Summer just a little more fun and help you answer that familiar call of “Mom, I’m bored!”

Alphabet Kids Do Phonics Rules


The rules we used for our book came from The Handy English Encoder Decoder by Harvey Bluedorn.

You can use the tools in this e-book however with any phonics program you have to become more familiar with the rules and make a book for further reference.
