It's an overcast day in the San Francisco Bay Area where I live and I'm looking for towards a cozy weekend at home with the kids (so long as we don't have another surprise heatwave). I'm even more psyched about planning out our activities after reading a post from Amy Clark, who pens the Mother Load column over at MomAdvice.com. Amy recently attempted a money-free weekend. That's right. Mom, dad and their two kids spent an entire weekend without dropping a time.
The idea stems from a post by Trent over at The Simple Dollar, where he offers up 100 ways to spend a have a money-free weekend. And single rule is that you can't spend a single dollar...not even for a quick grocery run. So if you're going to attempt this little experiment, plan ahead.
Trent's list has tons of activity ideas for families. Some of my favorites:
- Check out the community calendar for free family activities (classes, plays, events).
- Bake a loaf of homemade bread.
- Have a film festival by
