This was orignally posted by Richard R Bell. I think this is something for us to all take time and think about. You don't have to spend money to have fun. Just take time out and enjoy your friend, your family and what you already have.

I ran across this great article on line about Money Free Weekends. There are a lot of ideas and I have provided a link so you can check it out on your own.

When you think about it- there is no need to spend a ton to have a little fun. There is plenty that you can do with out spending a lot of dough.

1. Go for a walk with your spouse.

2. Complete a puzzle.

3. Watch an old classic movie.

4. Get out photo albums and scan the pictures for relatives on-line.

5. Make a special dinner together.

6. Go out side and have an evening picnic amongst the stars.

7. Plan a vacation together and challenge each other to find the best deals.

8. Read a great book.

9. Listen to your favorite music and watch the sunset.

10. Play a board game.

This can be a great family weekend or one just for the two of you. If you really want to kick it up a notch try it without TV.

It is also a great way to teach your children the value of time together with commercializing it.

Tanya - This is a great list and these are things we have done as a family.  This time of year I have to skip #6.

Tanya, thanks for re-blogging this. Some of my best childhood memories are sitting around the kitchen table playing cards as as family.

Jennifer - How cool.

Lara - I remember in the summertime my family would play card from sun up to sun down. Spades all day.
