Why, hello. I know, it’s been a while since my last post. I have been soaking up my new baby snuggles as much as I can before I go back to work in Jan. I can’t believe how fast this last month and a half has gone by.

Since being off work, without maternity pay, I have had to do a lot of thinking on activities we could do as a family that didn’t cost money, and if it did, not more than a few bucks.

I am super frugal, if you haven’t figured that out yet. 😉 So, this is the perfect post to research and write about.

So, without further ado…

If you want to stay at home, you could:

Have a garage sale (and earn money!)

Bake/Cook (alone or as a family)


Rearrange your furniture



Watch a movie

Do a puzzle

Build a fort with your kids

Play cards/board games


If you want to be outside you can:



Take your kids to the park


Play in the pool/sprinkler

Start a bonfire

Go fishing

Go on a bike ride

Fly a kite

Hopscotch/jump rope (if you have kid, or not ;))


If you want to do stuff around town you can:

Check out the library

An art show or flea market

Find a free concert/movie in the park

Check out all the landmarks or site see

Find free events going on

These are a few things I have come up with while being out on leave from work. We can usually always find different things to do around here when we are low on funds.

I am always up for free!

What are some different things you like to do for free?
