Whether you’re a family of three or six, going out can be a costly endeavor.
So we decided to pick the brains of Joanie Demer and Heather Wheeler for their top tips on how to have family fun on a budget.
Check them out below:
Search online for dining out deals. Restaurant.com sells $25 gift certificates every day for $10 that you can print from home. The only catch? There’s a minimum purchase requirement (usually $35, excluding alcohol). Added bonus: Use our discount code: DINNER for an even bigger discount. Right now, you’ll receive 60% off, which means you’ll only pay $4 for a $25 gift certificate!
Spend time together for free. Everything from a trip to the park to hanging out at the local library doesn’t cost a thing. Even better? You can borrow DVD’s from the library for family movie night. They may not stock all the new releases, but they’ll more than likely have family-friendly classics.
Host a potluck. Having a party doesn’t have to be a financial burden. Invite a group of close friends over and have each family bring their favorite dish — and board game. It’s a guaranteed night of fun.
Coupon together. Get the kids involved and make finding deals a family event. Before long, your tots will be expert money savers.
