Screen free week that is! This year it is May 5-11. My husband is dreading it but I am looking forward to it.

If you have work or school work of course your use the computer but other than that, no screens :). I'm looking up lists of all different activities for kids to do.

Next week I am going to go to the dollar tree and get little baskets and fill with craft things for my 3 youngins to do one day.


If your going screen free as well share your ideas to keep busy!!

To us it's not a big deal. We are screen free during the week anyway.always have been.
Weekends we are normally so busy we don't have a lot of time to use electronics.
Have fun:). It's one of the best choices we have ever made with our family.

This is going to be the deciding factor to if we can keep direct TV or not. Dh wants to keep it, he thinks there is nothing to do but watch TV or play video games. *eyeroll*.

I wouldn't care if it was gone. Saves us 200 a month, lol!

I couldn't agree with you more Direct Tv is nothing but a waste of money! They just like Dish charge way to much for television! Its a damn ripoff how a company can charge that much when in all reality you can only watch one channel at a time anyway! We've got a converter box and get about 12 channels for free! That's plenty if ya ask me!

No we aren't going to do it.  My kids are grown and I must have my CM and I must watch my favorite shows.  I know I'm a total t.v. junkie but I don't care, lol.
