There’s no season like fall to get out of the house: cooler weather, bright colors, the undeniable appeal of not doing homework… But fall also brings concerns about money, from fretting over the cost of college to budgeting for gift-giving in the upcoming holiday season. Saving money, however, doesn’t mean that there’s nothing to do. Next week’s Homecoming events are all budget-friendly, especially Wednesday’s free Powderpuff football game and fireworks show.
