HOW TO HAVE FAMILY FUN WHILE SAVING MONEY
If you are seeking some family fun-time but just don't have the money
to spend, find out what is available in your community. Being
creative accompanied with your local community activity guide can equate to
free fun for you and your loved ones! Below are some suggestions for
having fun with your family with minimal or no spending.
Finding things to do in your community
It is simple to spend significant money for entertaining.
But nothing is going to be fun if you don't have money left over
for paying your bills or putting food on the table. The best
place to learn about what there is to do in your area is to
visit your local chamber of commerce and/or city tourism bureau.
They will definitely be able to provide you with a variety of
free and low-cost activities.
Local community pools
Your local pool is an excellent place for keeping cool during
the summer months. Price will depend on where you live, what day of
week it is and whether it is a holiday (Memorial Day, July 4th,
Labor Day) and will likely cost only a few dollars per visit. It is
important to note that almost every community pool will offer
'family season passes' for at major discounts compared to cost of daily
visits. Getting a season pass is a good idea if you plan on taking
the family to the local pool regularly. On the downside, if you have
guests that are from another area (you will be asked to show idea
proving you live locally whenever visiting a community pool) they will
have to pay higher costs than those that are from the community.
Nowadays, most YMCAs offer top quality amenities including gyms
for working out,
swimming pools, basketball courts, children camps/activities, etc..
Family rates are available and cost will be based on a sliding scale
depending on your income.
Your local community center will likely offer a variety of
different things to do for everyone in your family that are either
free or at little cost; i.e. exercise programs, arts and crafts,
trips to the park, dance classes and a whole lot more! Community
centers are an excellent place for meeting people in the event that
you are new to your area and don't have any friends.
In addition to being a great place for kids to play and run
around, area parks are a really nice to go for a jog and enjoy the
beautiful weather. And best of all, parks are 100% free. A good idea
would be to look online for special community events. During the
summer there may be concerts. Winter months may showcase indoor
craft fairs, etc..
Getting your kids into reading at an early age is a very good
idea. In addition to books, libraries now offer music CDs and DVD
movies for borrowing. The library is always free....unless you are late on a
return or even worse, lose whatever you have checked out.
Your own backyard
Having a family camping trip in your yard! This will be a fun
activity and likely a family bonding experience. Do some star gazing
and listen to all the night sounds.
Go online and search for games to play in your
backyard. Depending on your age, you will be able to pass down
outdoor games you played as a kid, before the advancement of video
games and the Internet. Nowadays kids do not get enough exercise
outdoors and have no clue how to play games like 'manhunt', 'red
rover', 'kick the can', etc..
