Let’s be honest. Wandering around the mall (or Walmart or Target) is a real American past-time.
A pretzel, a swimsuit, and a few shopping bags later, we find ourselves having spent more money than we had planned when we initially said we’d go “walk around.”
And if you’re trying to resist buying things you don’t need, a trip to the mall is probably not what the doctor ordered.
But it’s so hot outside.
I get it– the mall offers “free” air conditioning, right? Well, perhaps. It would be free if you didn’t drop a single dime while you were there. You get the point.
So what options do we have in the summer that don’t involve shopping and subsequently cluttering up our homes?
I’ve got a few ideas for you that will not only protect your wallet, but also possibly expand the list of options you have for any open weekends coming up.
