Our whole crew is getting excited about the Texas State Fair. It's a HUGE event in our family each year. The problem is that as our kids get older and our "crew" expands to include some other super special people, the cost of the fair can sky rocket. We've found a few great cost savings ideas over time, so I wanted to share them with you.
