We love going out for the day and we have got packing for our day out down to a fine art. So these are the three ways that I save money on a family day out:
Pack a picnic:
It doesn't have to be a lot, but taking food makes such a difference to us and our budget. It doesn't have to be sandwiches. We often take pie or quiche with new potatoes or even hot dogs (in a flask) and buns.
Take a flask:
Even a couple of teas and two drinks for the boys can really add up, so we have a number of flasks that we can take out with us depending on how long we are out for. I fill them with water and op teabags,sweetener, coffee, hot chocolate and milk in to cover all options.
Look for voucher deals and pay in advance
If you know where you are going, make sure you look online for money off deals such as kids go free or two for one. Even if you can not find any most attractions offer money off if you pay for your entrance online in advance.
I would love to know how you save money on family days out?
