Free, free, free!
The best things in life are free! Well the best things in life are not things, but if they were they would be free! There is no greater feeling in my world than spending a full day of having fun with my children and knowing I did so for free. Living in this high Bay Area economy money can seem like a fleeting resource. There are so many fun places in the Bay Area to take your kids and some of them that cost a significant amount of money. You should never have to choose between having fun with your kids and your finances. I am here to show you that you don't have to. Here's how to have fun for free. A comprehensive list of all things free in the next month or so, click on the name of the place to be redirected to their page on my website...
