Being home meant more time on my hands. For me, this could lead to more spending and I (or my budget) wasn’t going to allow that.
For us, we have reduced our cable TV to basic and have one streaming service. That’s all we have and I wasn’t going to pay for any more.
We have kept ourselves entertained with free stuff. We have watched movies on the channels that we have. I was able to watch the movie Hidden Figures that I had wanted to. I highly recommend it if you haven’t watched it. We explored a variety of free services. We have always used Hoopla from the library for free movies. We’ve toured places what we haven’t been to, such as virtual tours of museums and national parks. I’ve read many books that I was planning on reading that I never got to. We broke out our board games and played for entertainment. We have explorer new locations for our daily walks. All this without spending a penny.
If we can do this, you can too.
