How to have a day out without spending a fortune

Well yesterday was a good moneysaving day - a trip out to a local country park. We took all our own food, including ice creams ( much cheaper from the supermarket and will last a couple of hours in a cool bag with a couple of ice packs) and apart from a little bit of petrol to get there, it only cost us £2.50 - which was the parking charge. Mind you, on the way out we spotted a bit of free on road parking with only a short walk to the park. So next time we go it will be completely free.

My kind of day!
