National Park Week starts on April 17th and goes for the entire week through April 25th. During that time, all admission fees to the parks are waived! That means that if you have been wanting to take a trip to a national park this is the week to go.

There are 392 different national parks, from the grand to the small but interesting. Some national parks already allow entrance without a fee, but many do not. So, this is a great fun and free event to take advantage of. We are tossing around the idea of trying to hit two different parks this week.

You can learn more and search all of the states to find listing and information for all of the parks by going here.

With the nice weather coming here in the Mid Atlantic, I’ll be looking around for lots of free day trips and local entertainment that is offered for free.

Did you know, for example, that some museums offer free admissions on Sunday mornings, their least busiest times? Or that you can find plenty of free music, movies and theater shows at local parks?

Two big movie chains, AMC and Regal offer free or low cost family movies in the summer.

Church’s, local civic centers, community centers and townships often offer free pancake breakfast, cookouts, and fairs with moonbounces and other activities.

Keep checking back. When I find some good free entertainment, I’ll be sure to post it for you.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
