Savings Experiment: Save on Summer Entertainment Lisa Cash Hanson has learned a thing or two about saving money, thanks to her successful blog MompreneurMogul.com. Here, she chats with The Savings Experiment and shares a few of her budget-friendly secrets on how to save on summer entertainment.

Hanson and her husband knew they wanted to start a family, but she wanted to stay home with her baby, and make a little money while doing it. "My blog was the perfect way to transition into that," she says.
