Simple Money Saving: Kids

Share what fun things you and your family love to do!

Go skating as a family! Click HERE to see what skating rinks are letting kids skate for FREE. 

One way my family has chosen to save money is to cut cable. We were able to get a great deal with a local internet and tv provider to pay only $19.95 a month on internet. (I warn you that we have one of the slowest speeds- but it works!) 🙂 

There is little that we miss except Disney Junior. Luckily, my kiddos can watch Disney Junior online! I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to shave off some monthly expenses. Purchasing a cable to hook your computer to the television is much cheaper than any cable bill. Pick your own produce as a family! Find a location near you. Click HERE
I LOVE cooking with my kids! Well, as long as they are well napped and well behaved. 😉 It may just be me but I really do think they eat more when they help prepare the food. Here are some silly “kid friendly” food ideas. Click HERE

Also, here are some paper cutouts I created for the kids. We traced them on felt and had fun making all sorts of different faces. It makes a great “travel friendly” potato head type activity. 🙂
