Two weeks ago I found what looked like a new Classic Nordic Track for $15. They were selling it because it did not work. I bought it for my girlfriend and after about 30 minutes I found the problem, very minor, and now she has a $600 Nordic Track for $15. She had used her previous one till she wore it out. That has been my best find in a long time!

I recently remarried, but I did some of those things when I was single.. My park will sometimes show a movie in the park. Admission is free, and popcorn is cheap.
Vacations are tough for a single dad. Some things I did for that were (I'm a college professor and a medical professional):
Take the kids with you on professional development seminar trips. They're kids. They'll sleep til noon. You go to the early sessions and knock off at noon.
Renting hotels from cheap websites like hotels.com is a no-brainer. But the problem is that eats are still an issue. Rent a condo from an individual at vrbo.com. They have kitchenettes. you can save on food by cooking your own.
Camp in an area close to the attractions that you want to see. This works only if the things you intend to do aren't to physically demanding (at least for us). Camping was draining enough. To put teenage boys through the ringer all day then camp in a Texas summer tent was too much.
