But before it’s completely over, why not say so long to summer in style and throw a back-to-school bash on a budget? Be sure to check out the great deals and coupons over at the UltimateCoupons.com Back to School Sale page for even more great ideas!

Organize a BBQ - Nothing says summer like a barbeque. Bid farewell to summer fun with one last backyard BBQ. Serve the summer staples like hamburgers, hot dogs and ice cream. Have a water balloon fight and run through the sprinkler. End the night with a s’more making session.

Have a Summer Movie Night - Rent some of the best summer vacation movies of all time and throw a viewing party. Make sure “Vacation” with Chevy Chase and “Dirty Dancing” with Patrick Swayze are on the line-up. For a summer twist, get a projector and hang a white sheet in the backyard for an outdoor movie.

Find a Travel Deal - Late summer is a great time to snatch last minute travel deals. Why not have your back-to-school bash in Gatlinburg, Tennessee? There are plenty of travel deals and discounts at Gatlinburg.com. Or take the kids to a local water park for a cheap day of fun.

Organize a Fashion Show - Is your child into fashion? Tell her to invite her friends over for a stylish fall fashion show. Ask guests to wear their funkiest fall outfit for a stroll down the catwalk. Have the kids vote for their favorite look. Give the winner a gift certificate to a local store like Old Navy or Gap Kids.

Throw a Party - Let your little one invite classmates over for a back-to-school party. Ask guests to bring some school supplies to donate to needy kids. Fill a piñata with colorful pencils, erasers and stickers that they can use at school. Use mini chalkboards as name cards or to label food dishes.
