  • We save the big things for birthdays and special occasions for the most part. We do get discount movie we do them more often. We enjoy having picnics at the free concerts at the park, going to the beach, and a variety of free or low cost entertainment.

  • we do one or two major vacations a year and very little otherwise. We enjoy the big vacations so we have given up many mini trips.

  • hardly ever... right now my dh is the only one working & since i'm due to give birth in a few weeks, me getting a job is out of the question.... as soon as i do, we're going to save up to take the kids to the beach next year :)

  • we don't do anything at all.. we haven't been on a trip since our honeymoon 5 years ago.. we just can't afford it and the kids are to young to really enjoy anything other than the backyard yet anyway.. someday when they are older we hope to do at least a summer trip every year.

  • Never, the kids are to young. There is no point. Hell, at these ages we aren't even having parties for birthdays!! They won't remember...
