More Family Time Minus The Money

How to Spend More Time as a Family without Spending Money


Spending time with your family is one of the best ways to show them you love them. Money can buy a lot of things but it can’t buy time and memories. When you make the time to do things with your family, you’re creating special memories that will last forever.

Here are some ways you can spend more time as a family without spending money:

  1. Have a movie night – You can watch something you already own or pick something free to watch online (Netflix is a winner for this). Make snacks, bring blankets and cuddle up, or whatever works for your family.
  2. Make and eat dinner together – Having dinner together is great for quality time but what if you also made the dinner together? You could do an old family favorite or try a brand new recipe together.
  3. Go to free shows/museums – Another great idea is to look around your area for free shows or free museums (some paid museums also have free days) and spend the day there together as a family.
  4. Bake together – You could bake a cake and decorate it together, or bake some cookies or a favorite treat.

These are just a few ideas for how to spend more time together as a family. You should try to come up with even more that your family will enjoy. You can sit down and talk about ideas together.
