Too often we think we cannot have a life if we are working on paying off our debt. The trick is take the family out to do really cheap or better yet, free activities.
There is no price on quality family time. You could go to a park and fly kites, have a picnic or just sit down together and play a board game.
A few years ago, I thought that we had to spend money to have any fun. I have really opened my eyes to the joys of living a simple life. We don’t buy any fancy clothes… we drive a 2003 vehicle… we hardly ever go out to eat, but we are happy to be together.
I gotta tell you, it feels good to know your visa credit cards don’t have to be your ticket to happniess. So pack a lunch and spend some time with your kids. Not shopping, but having some free high quality fun time together. That’s what I plan to today myself.
