Some people love having a huge family. With a huge family comes some trade-offs when it comes to what your family can have and what it may consider a necessity. There are some great ideas out there for every large family when it comes to saving money and still having fun.
1. A Car That Holds Everyone
The first thing on the list for every large family is a vehicle that can hold everyone and their stuff. A great car for this is the Nissan Quest from Nissan San Bernardino. This minivan can hold 7 people, meaning that you have room for everyone. With great gas mileage and a reasonable price tag, you can be rest assured that all of your money isn’t being poured into your car. Find out more about the Quest at Metro Nissan Redlands.
2. A Pop-Up Trailer
For many large families, planning out a vacation that involves flights and hotels can be way outside their budget. With a pop-up trailer, for just a few thousand dollars, you can have a lifetime of fun by taking road trips to places closer to you and also have your “housing” with you. Your kids will love the freedom available to them when you camp, especially if the campground you choose has bike paths or a swimming area. If you can’t afford a new one, look at the end of the season for people who may be selling their campers in order to upgrade next season.
3. A Great Collection of Board Games
While board games seem kind of basic, there’s no better way to get the entire family away from the TV and computers for some together time. Have a weekly game night where everyone has to be away from the electronics. It will be a great way for you and your family to enjoy some time together without spending a lot.
