Tip for lessening "gift" giving stress from "The Farm"

November 26, 2015

 

Instead of giving your children gifts of toys and electronics that take them away from you...give them a gift that brings them to you!

 

Spending full focus time with your children or grandchildren is the biggest and best gift ever!  Make a memory!!

 

An overnight trip or even just a day trip that you do things, learn things, cool adventures together.......with no interruptions!

 

It costs far less than you think!  We began doing this 4 years ago with our Grandchildren.  We can't afford a whole lot and I finally got smart.

 

I keep all receipts when doing "Christmas" shopping and one year I woke up!  I realized that between 3 (at that time) Grandchildren we were spending close to $1000 on "stuff"......Yes.........that's right $1000 on STUFF!!!  Crazy huh??

 

We remembered and thought, each year we buy them this, that and the other thing only to learn 2-3 months down the road that most of it is sitting in a box or broken so, I got a brainwave!  I checked it out and a not too far away indoor water theme park for a 1 night stay and 2 full days of using the waterpark was less than $500!  Yup.......and that was for 5 of us!!  This year........same deal and there is 7 going!!  

 

Each year I asked the Grandkids, what would you like for Christmas and for the last 3 it's been to do our "annual"  FAMILY getaway because "it's the best time and memories ever".

 

In case you need a bench mark.  For a 1 night stay, meals (we take a lot of our own food) and some fun stuff (that they can use year after year) less than $1000. 

 

 

Make a memory.......that last forever

 

Who knows.....you yourself may enjoy being that child again too!
