Winter Family Fun on the Cheap

This article, entitled Winter Family Fun on the Cheap comes from SavingsAngel.com.

During the cold months, sometimes it’s hard to muster the fortitude to get out and play. Even more so if everything you can think to do is out of your current budget. After all, taking an entire family to most activities adds up quickly. But no worries – there is affordable family fun to be had during the winter! You just have to look for it…

  1. Visit your local library: Check their event calendar for special days and events, especially for small children.

  2. Visit a home improvement store: Lowe’s and Home Depot both host Kids’ Days. They give away small projects, like bird houses, for free. They even have the hand tools there to make the projects in-store. Extend the fun by purchasing a sample size can of paint to personalize your project at home.

  3. Catch a flick: Matinee prices at the movie theaters are less than in the evenings. Make it cost even less by skipping the 3D version of the movie.

And finally, and perhaps more importantly, many “pay” activities have coupons available. Some sources include: On the activity or location’s website, the annual Entertainment book, and through Swagbucks.


The best couponers save hundreds of dollars every month at the grocery store. However, extreme couponers can end up living very extreme lifestyles to get those savings. For over five years, SavingsAngel.com has equalized the playing field – giving extreme savings to busy families who don’t have the time or ability to be an extreme couponer.

These combinations result in our members getting access to over 300 products each week for 50% off or better. Simply log in, choose the deals you want, print or clip only the coupons you need, and save hundreds of dollars a month at regional and national stores. Our angels will personally work with you to craft a plan that will help you buy healthier food at lower prices – helping you keep $200 to $400 in savings each month.
