I am not talking about material items, I am talking about the memories that we make with our families, friends and my favorite memories to make with, our children. I am sure I am not alone when I say, I spend time looking for deals on things to do with my family all while doing so I neglect the fact that there are so many things that I can do with them to spend quality time with them that won’t cost a dime! Yes going to an amusement park or to the movies is fun, and finding a great deal on those places are great but you are still spending money.
I love the smiles on my kids faces that come from the things that we can do at home that cost nothing at all. As I am writing this my kids are laughing, smiling and running around the backyard having a blast and when they do something cool they are screaming “Mom Look what I can do!” Funny thing about that, as my littlest one is riding around in her cozy coupe car is that the car was totally FREE, I found it on the curb when we lived in New Jersey and we actually have 3 Little Tikes cars (1 police car and 2 cozy coupes), all of which were found on the curb and when I brought them home I remember the smiles on the kid’s face that they had another one and did not have to share! They love these cars and these cars have been everything from cars to boats to a helicopter. They let their imagination run wild and that doesn’t cost a thing. The memories that we make doing fun things, be it if it is going out for ice cream or using a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car as a helicopter rescuing the Barbies from that monsters are the best freebies in the world, it is those memories that are the best thing in life and they are free!
So while in the hustle and bustle of all the deals, and looking to save money remember the memories you make are free and there are so many memories you can make at home with your family that does not cost a thing!
