72-HOUR Patriotic Sale on Molly Green Annual Memberships — only $29.99!

4th of july promo header

…from Molly, Midge & Econobusters

We all know that freedom isn’t free. So, I want to start this message out by thanking all those — past and present — who have sacrificed so much for our future freedoms! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! 

On a slightly different note, learning to be more frugal and cooking better for our families comes at a price too. We always try to keep the costs of our resources affordable, because we care! We’re right there with you in the trenches learning and stretching ourselves every day. We know so many of you are one-income families, or struggling through job-loss, or maybe you’re just trying to keep your head above water since the economy took a dive in the last few years. Molly Green Magazine and Econobusters.com was BORN for such a time as this.

Our founders wanted to pass on what they were learning and how it was making a huge difference in their families on many different levels. We have continued that vision to this day and our honest desire is that Econobusters.com continues to be a safe community where you will glean information from our team and each other while also sharing your own successes and failures with others who have the same goal — to provide a loving and nurturing home for our kids while also teaching them to “leave the nest” and fly, well-equipped to do the same for their own future family.

As usual, Midge and I have lots of exciting things in the works for Molly Green Magazine and www.Econobusters.com and we’re really looking forward to sharing those with you all in the very near future.
So… why else am I writing you today??? Well, we want to offer you a 72-Hour Special on our Molly Green Annual Memberships.

Large Family Vacation Ideas

h

Planning a vacation or a Spring Break getaway? That can sometimes be difficult for a large family, let’s explore some frugal travel options.

Family Vacation

Plan ahead, anyone traveling with children must plan ahead. Even if it’s a simple family-friendly vacation to visit the relatives, you might like to start planning two to three months in advance. For a big family vacation, plan a year or more in advance. Many resorts and cruise lines have deals for early bookings, allowing families to save money.

Family Vacation Time in the Low Season

Taking a family vacation during the “off” season is another option to help to save money. When everyone else returns to work or school, vacation cities and resort towns look for ways to fill empty hotels and vacation homes. Large family vacations may be cheaper if planned in early fall or right after Christmas.

Vacation Accommodations for Large Families

Staying in a hotel can be the biggest expense for a large family. Since most chains limit how many people can stay in a room, this usually means that two or more rooms will be needed. Places like Comfort Inn or hotels ending in the word suite, (Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites), are family-friendly and usually have hotel rooms for big families at reasonable rates.

Look at alternatives to staying in expensive hotels. Many large families go camping or own an RV. Consider buying a large family tent, pop up camper, or RV. Good deals on camping equipment can usually be found right after Christmas and after hunting season.

If camping won’t work for your family, consider renting a vacation home. Many resort locations offer the rental of a nice vacation home for around a $100 to $150 a night. However, renting a vacation home usually requires a minimum of a five-night stay.

Theme Parks 

For many families with children, a family vacation destination is often a theme park like Six Flags, Sea World, or Disney World. With a little planning, it is possible to enjoy a day at a theme park with a large family. As vacation season approaches, start looking for special deals, discounts, and group rates to the parks of your choice. Many national grocery store chains offer season passes to local amusement parks for just a little more than a one day pass!

State Parks and National Parks

Vacation destinations are sometimes planned around the locations of state parks and national parks. Every state has several parks to choose from. These parks offer camping and RV sites. A few offer the use of covered shelters and air conditioned cabins. This is a cheap alternative to an expensive hotel. Campground fees vary, but it would be rare to spend more than $80 a night even for the best accommodations. There are many fun, family activities to do while staying at a state park. Most state parks offer swimming, fishing, and hiking.

  • Begin With the Basics: If you don’t know what GORP is, find the answer (and the recipe) here. Your family will thank you! You’ll also get tips on other good snacks for traveling.
  • Forms & Printables: The Internet is a treasure trove of activities to keep kids busy in the car, whether you’re going for a long trip or a ride around town. Puzzles, games, mazes, trivia, and art projects will help time fly.
  • Décor & More: Eleanor Joyce offers lots of tips for healthy and frugal travel, from what to eat to how to keep everyone comfortable. Think outside the fast food box and take along a salad in a jar; just shake, then eat. Learn what the kids should wear when traveling, plus things you won’t want to do without on the road.
  • Meal of the Month: Give your hungry family a taste of White Chicken Chili and make extra to put in the freezer for quick meals.
  • Molly’s Motor Maintenance: Take on some of your car’s mechanical checkups yourself to save money at the garage and avoid preventable repairs. Not mechanically inclined? Don’t worry. Anyone can do these simple checks.
  • Bicycle Basics & More: If your bike has been dormant during the winter, it needs a checkup too. A basic spring tuneup may help you avoid problems out on the road.
  • Pet Care for Pennies: Find out how grooming done at home can ward off skin infections and other problems, as well as save the cost of having a professional do the job. Even if you only stick to the basics, you can stretch the time between grooming appointments and watch the savings add up.
  • Tightwad Training Camp: Kids learn the difference between fixed and variable expenses and are challenged to think about whether expenditures are based on wants or needs.
  • Something Old, Something New: Sharon White reaches into her store of salvaged items to make a folding stool that’s functional, frugal, and fashionable. This project also has something to teach us about trust.
  • Here’s to Your Health: With a number of free websites, you can track your food intake each day, get healthy recipes, participate in forums with others who share your fitness goals, and track your weight loss progress.
  • You’re a Natural Beauty: Treat your hands to some homemade lotion, then turn your attention to your nails. A multisided buffer can make them pretty without polish.
