Living on One Income // Family Fun

This post is part of my Living on One Income series.

So, our family might not get to go to the zoo, movies, or go on a yearly vacation,
but we still get to have a lot of fun without spending a lot of moola.

I want my kids to remember life at home.
 I hope we will, someday, be able to go on a really cool vacation,
but for now it's not in the cards for us.

Here are a few ideas of things you can do with your family that don't break the bank:
sprinkler fun- What kid doesn't love that?!?
backyard camping- no hotel rental costs, continental breakfast at home, still a fun experience 
smores in the driveway- Our kids love making smores!  They think it is the best ending to a nice evening ever!
eating out- We love eating out, but the more we do it, the less special it becomes.  Instead, it is expected and there is a lot of begging to eat out and fighting over where to go.  So, we limit it and then it becomes exciting when we do get to eat out.
family bike rides- Our kids loved going on family bike rides last fall.  We will definitely be doing this more this year!

I would love to know how you spend family time without spending a lot of money!
Leave it in the comments!!!

  1. Hi I just stumbled upon your blog! I love posts about having fun without spending a lot of money! We spend a lot of time at our library...they have a lot of events for families esp in the summer. We also visit our high school pool and local play ground...both are within walking distance which is great since we are a one car fam! :)
