While the kids and the rest of the family want to get together and do something fun for the holidays, there are easy ways to make sure it’s cost effective and seasonal.
Stick to the basics:
What says Easter better than colouring eggs? Not much! Grab a few dozen hardboiled white eggs, a few bowls of water/food colouring and a pack of markers – you’ve got yourself an easy Easter Morning.
This activity will occupy the kids, outlet some creativity and keep the activity costs well below $20 for the entire family. You don’t need fancy egg-dying kits, when the basics of food colouring, vinegar and hot water is all you need!
Getting together with the whole family is a big part of any holiday (for better or worse) and that usually means a big meal. If it’s your year to host and things are a little tight financially, why not suggest brunch instead of dinner?
Family brunch is much less formal, cuts costs (think of the no-booze factor) and is a great change of pace. If you’ve never done this, give it a shot this year and start some new holiday traditions.
Like all holidays, the week after is going to produce some post-seasonal sales. Not doing much for the holiday weekend, but still have a sweet tooth? Hit the grocer on Tuesday for all the chocolate bunnies you want – at less than half the price.
There you have 3 great ways to save for the holiday weekend, now take some time to relax! Enjoy the time with your family, as you work to be debt free. Yep – you can do them both at the same time.
