Mamas: Your best free activities & low-cost shopping?
For some of us, low-cost living is the reality. We just don't have dual incomes or excess funds to go around. Even when we are pinching pennies, there is still plenty to do with the kids. We are sure of it! What are your favorite free haunts? Where do you go? What about for household or children's items? Where can you find decent quality, low-cost goods? An urbanMama emails:
Can you give me ideas for how to go out and about (or stay in!) with my 3 kids (ranging 3-12) without spending money - or spending very little?! I am up-to-speed with the library and the parks, but need more inspiration! Also, shopping suggestions - both for household and childrens stuff. Thanks (ps. the naked mamas party was a huge help!)
