Half Term and Spending !!

Money Saving

How much on average does it cost a family ( extra) in half term !! I try to do the free stuff but still ends up costing a fortune. What do you do to help with saving in the holidays ??

It soon mounts up.

Took my two Nephews to the pictures last half term.

By the time we all had something to eat the bill topped £100.

To be fair... Weather is manky so I do a lot of arts and crafts activities, baking and let them choose what they want to do.

Hi, I sign up for meerkat movies /meals each year and it helps with going to the cinema etc. Museums are lovely for a day out and often have half term activities 😍

My kids are older now but I remember how expensive term holidays can be. Worse when the weathers this bad as it rules out alot of free outdoor activities. Museums are a good shout, most are free these days. I used to do baking with mine, nothing fancy just cupcakes or biscuits & let them decorate.

It doesn’t cost me much extra to be honest. This half term we will have one day out. But we usually have one day out a month. I can take my children to work with me and my Mums house is attached to my work so they can play in or outside the rest of the week
