At the beginning of this month, I shared how I would be participating in a financial challenge this month.
Each week, there has been a specific area to focus on including cash, food, family fun and clothing.
I have had help and guidance from Gail Vaz-Oxlade, a financial expert who has written a great book called Money Rules that shares many great tips through 261 Rules for how to be smart with your money.
I bet there are many families who have a variable income who have trouble making a budget and Gail Vaz-Oxlade can help!
This week, the challenge has been Family Fun.
This time of year, I hear about all kinds of families going away or planning a vacation to a nice, warm destination to get away from all of this crazy winter weather. If your family is not one of those fortunate ones to be getting away (like my family), there are still many options to have fun that don’t cost too much money!
Some more budget friendly family fun ideas:
- outdoor skating
- create an indoor beach day
- put your bathing suits on and enjoy an hour in the tub with beach toys
- swimming at your local pool
- family game night
- family hike
- a trip to the zoo
