Unfortunately, we are not bears and are not afforded the luxury of shutting ourselves down for a few months. At a time where all you want to do is snuggle under a blanket on the couch and binge watch all the shows you missed while doing yardwork, the demands of family, friends and work dramatically increase. Tis the season of holiday shopping, parties and entertaining. Tis the season to exert extreme drain on our energy, wardrobe and pocketbook. Tis the season to spend.
Mother Nature has been quite kind to us in Manitoba so far this summer. The sun has been shining and the temperatures are fantastic. And let’s not mention the M word, the lack of our buzzing, biting little buddies. Now that school is out, it’s time to think about how to entertain ourselves on the weekends and the kids for two whole months. With a younger generation who has access to more technology and games than any generation prior, it’s easy to visualize a summer spent indoors. With the summer shaping up as it has been so far what a better time to break that cycle. Let’s be smart about it and not break the bank while we’re at it. We live in a beautiful province that offers so many options for activities. These can range from day trips to week long outings for anyone who wants to enjoy it. Here are some cost-effective options for making memories.
