5 Tips to Save Money on Family Days Out


There are plenty of ways you can make your money go further on a day out with the kids. Family days out can often accidentally be expensive if you find yourself paying for several entrance tickets, meals, and transport. Sometimes the best family days out are the simplest, however. A hike or cycle ride in the most scenic areas of the countryside, or a family picnic can be even more fun. Here are five tips to save money on family days out.

Look for deals

There are plenty of places you can look for deals online. Net Voucher Codes, for example, offer a range of discounts for UK staycations and day trips. Get money off your next family cottage or other accommodation and stay overnight as well. There are many deals available for all sorts of shops, restaurants and family activities, you just need to know where to look!

Plan ahead of the weather

It’s a good idea to have a contingency plan if the weather changes. Brainstorm some rainy day activities that won’t break the bank if you’re caught in a shower. Unfortunately, the cheaper days out tend to all outdoors, so you might want to plan ahead for rain. Look if any local cinemas have family deals or find vouchers for restaurants online.

Pack a picnic

A picnic will save you a lot of money on meals out. Eating out can be costly if there are a lot of you and a picnic will be much cheaper. There are plenty of easy picnic recipes you can try for a healthier homemade option. Picnics also give you more flexibility. It’s also safer, you can keep your distance a little more from other diners in public places. Plan a secluded park to stop and eat on your day out. It’s a good idea to have somewhere in mind before you go.

Join the National Trust

If you love exploring British heritage sites, there are plenty of perks for joining the National Trust. Membership gives you and your family free access to all their locations and car parks. Have a look at the National Trust official site for more information. If not, this is a great resource for ideas for family days out. There are plenty of beautiful historical sites to visit and enjoy. You’ll surely be able to find some hidden gems near you.

Go cycling or hiking

Cycling or hiking trips make a great day out. They won’t cost much. You can pack a picnic with you and be on your way. There are hundreds of cycling and hiking options in the UK, here are some of the best scenic routes. Alternatively, you could get on your bike and explore your local area. You’ll undoubtedly discover something new.

If you’re looking to spend less on your family day out then getting in touch with nature is the best idea. You could even make a long weekend of it and go camping. What could be better during the summer months?

Fun Days Out for a Little Me Time

When you have a family, your life begins to revolve around them. This is understandable. Your partner, children and pets are likely to be the light of your life and you’re going to want the best for them at all times. You’re also going to want to spend a whole lot of your free time with them. This is why when it comes to planning adventures, many of us end up heading out on kid-oriented days out. But it’s important to remember to fit a little me-time into your schedule too! You’re an individual and you’ll need a little time alone every once in a while. This time can be used however you want. It could be used to relax and wind down, catch up with friends or simply have a little fun. However, you want to spend your dedicated me-time, here are a few suggestions that can give you something to really look forward to!

Get Rid Of Your Clutter

Start by getting rid of excess and unnecessary clutter in your home. It’s natural to use free surfaces as dumping grounds for letters and things, but if you want to make your home more relaxing you should aim to reduce clutter as much as possible. Try to have a set area for putting letters and things down, but aim to deal with them as soon as you get them to keep clutter to a minimum. Letters aren't the only type of clutter, but if you can come up with a process for the things that seem to pile up in your home, you’ll be able to deal with them so much easier.
