So here is the thing. I woke up this morning thinking it would be a great idea to have a spending detox for a week. In other words not spend any money other than for bills, groceries and petrol for a week.
When I told my 6 and 8 year old daughters, they were not too impressed.
I quote…. “nooooooo!” (note to self: must try and sell the idea a bit more!)
Now I could easily not spend any money for a week if I wanted to. I mean, I have done it plenty of times….granted there was usually a sick child in the house, so we were house bound…hmmm…maybe that doesn’t count??
So my first order of business (basically to make me feel better) was to do some research. I wanted to know what was out there that was free during the holidays. Do you know what? I was pleasantly surprised, there is actually quite a bit on! Bless those lovely people who are putting on all these lovely activities for the children free of charge! It is making my job to stick to this goal a whole bunch easier! yeah!!
So, I will post what I have found out, and I would love it if you would tell me what you do with your children during the holidays to stay sane, and keep from going bankrupt!
