How is your Saturday going?

We just got back from a Christmas train ride with Santa. Our town is lucky enough to have a real steam train in working order on the original tracks. Every December, the town sponsors a Christmas train ride. The tickets are only $4 each, and they sell out within hours. This is the first time in the three years that we have lived here that I have been able to get tickets (I made sure to show up within the first hour to purchase them when they went on sale last month).

We were limited to six tickets per family, which allowed us to take along a friend for our oldest child, who is right on the edge between believing in the magic of Santa and thinking he is too cool for Santa.

We’ve been seeing Santa and his eleves quite a bit lately, thanks to a bunch of wonderful free and low cost community events, such as the town’s tree lighting, our church’s Christmas festival (Mrs Santa was there because the big guy was busy) and more. Next weekend, we have a breakfast with Santa. I know of several other free Santa events, such as Chick-Fil-A’s free breakfast with the Santa cow, Santa at the library and more.

Beside Santa events, there are plenty of free Christmas Caroling, Christmas music concerts, Christmas Nutcracker ballet performances, Christmas lights display, Christmas food tastings all within our area. There are so many free and low cost events that we couldn’t do them all if we tried.

So, if you are looking for a little fun, just look around at your own community. You probably have just as many fun things going on where you live. Check with your town hall or public center, police stations, the chamber of commerce, local churches, local businesses, local civic groups, your community newspaper, and more. You can also become a fan of your local town on Facebook (if it has a page) to find out about available free and low cost events.

Meanwhile, thanks to Google, you can have Santa give your kids (or even a big kid), a call from Santa. Just click here to get started.It is free.

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.
