How kids love the summer holidays. Seemingly endless weeks without having to think, or worry, about anything. Even better, the lucky ones get the chance to jet to another country for a refreshing holiday abroad.It’s a blissful time for the whole family.
But, six weeks or more without education is a long time. If your kids don’t take it upon themselves to even pick up a book, it’ll be a struggle for them to get back to learning when the time comes.
When you first have kids, the day when they finally leave home seems like it will never come. You probably haven’t even started thinking about it, but it’ll come round quicker than you think. One day, they’ll be building a life of their own and they’re probably going to need your help. If you want to give them the best future possible, you need to start planning for it right away. Most parents start making early preparations for things like education, but there are all sorts of other things that tend to get overlooked. Consolidating and paying off your debt, and saving up some money is important, but there’s more to it than that. When you’re planning for your kid’s future, don’t forget these things.
There’s nothing quite like the summer holidays to remind you how expensive your kids can be. There are plenty of options when it comes to activities and day trips for the little ones, especially at this time of year. However, daily outings to Legoland and Alton Towers are things that very few parents can afford. In fact, one family outing to any sort of theme park or attraction seems to cost a small fortune; the bigger your brood is, the more out of pocket you’re going to be.
If I told you I was going to write a blog post about a really cheap holiday, I bet you would never think that I would write about skiing. That’s because so many families think that skiing trips are so expensive and are specifically aimed at well-heeled holidaymakers. Well, that really isn’t the case these days! In fact, you can now find some really cheap deals when you are looking to book a ski trip. View Post
Being thrifty is not always easy and having a bit of a release from time to time is healthy (in my opinion!). I come from a long trend of bingo players, and lottery hopers and am no exception to my heritage. View Post
