Spring Activities That Don't Break The Bank

Cabin fever has finally passed and the warm weather is calling. But you don't have to empty your wallet on fun spring activities. Here are a few alternatives that can help you save some money for bigger, better things.

Trade a B&B getaway for a camping trip. Imagine yourself nestled away somewhere in an adorable B&B in the mountains, or at a bungalow on your favorite stretch of coast. While it's perfectly fine to put away some cash for a getaway every season, camping trips are a cheaper alternative that you can sprinkle in over a couple of weekends in the spring.

Trade drinks on the waterfront for a backyard barbecue. Just a couple of drinks on that roof deck you have been eyeing can add up quickly! Instead, have some people over on a Saturday afternoon for a barbecue. Whip up some lemonade, flip some burgers, and spend an afternoon with friends and family.

Trade a day at the water park for a day at the beach. Water parks are great places to spend an afternoon, but they can be pricey, especially for a large family. For a cheaper alternative, bring snacks and sand castle building materials to the beach and have a ball. If you don't live by the water, try hiking instead when the weather is nice. Bring a picnic lunch at set up camp for an afternoon at the summit of your favorite mountain.

It's easy to get excited about spring weather and head right outside to do something - anything. But swapping a few of your spring activities for cheaper alternatives can make that family vacation in July feel a little easier.

  • Best Scents of 2019

    Walking into my home creates a sense of calm. I am safe. I am where I belong with the people I love. I am, well, home. Besides the obvious visual and physical cues, the sense that creates this feeling of calm is the smell. It is distinct, and it brings me comfort. Our ability to smell is arguably the most important of the five senses in creating, retaining and reliving a memory. This is why we so frequently find ourselves flashing back to a certain place and time when we get a whiff of a perfume, flower, cookie, or even...
