Spending quality time with your family these days can seem like an extra bill that shows up every month. It’s expensive to take a family of five to the movies, out to eat, or even to the local events!
And planning for a family vacation can seem like a dream that may never become a reality. My family is on a tight budget right now and vacations honestly haven’t been a yearly thing for us. Some years, we just couldn’t afford it.
In my opinion, this isn’t ideal. We need time off to rest, unwind, and reconnect as a family. Vacations and staycations are just the remedies for busy, tired, and worn-out families.
And in the meantime, sprinkled throughout the entire year, we need to have family date days. This could be anything from kicking the soccer ball around at the park to going to see the newest play in town.
