I’m always looking for good deals when it comes to my family. I take advantage of apps for services I use that offer me good deals, I look out for good deals in the supermarket and I look on websites to find some good family deals.
With half term coming up, I’m trying to collate a list of things to do that won’t cost the earth. How am I doing this and keeping things affordable? By looking for decent deals, of course! Whether it is for a day out, a short break away or a meal with the family, I know that if I look hard enough I will find a deal for something we are interested in.
Just by a little bit of searching in the past five minutes, I have found a great half price family ticket deal for an adventure park that Jack is interested in and also some massive savings on one of those big supersized paddling pools – perfect for this heatwave that we apparently should be expecting!
Olivia has recently developed an obsession with Peppa Pig too so I have been looking for some items with Peppa on without having to fork out a lot for it all. As they say if you look after the pennies, the pounds look after themselves and I am keen to keep on saving money where I can. Brands and companies make things so expensive when you have kids, unnecessarily expensive in some cases so why shouldn’t I take advantage of a good deal if I see one?
Being a parent is expensive enough as it is. I don’t want my kids to miss out but I equally don’t want to spoil them by spending lots of money on them when I don’t need to. Does it matter if I got that item a little bit cheaper? Not to anyone else but me – it has saved me those extra pennies that I can put towards something else or perhaps even in the kids moneyboxes.
So this is what I will be doing in the lead up to half term – looking for some fun almost free things to do with the kids! What have you got planned?
