Celebrate Dad by Saving Money


What better way to celebrate dad then by showing him his lessons in frugality paid off big?

In our ongoing series on frugality- why not come up with some ideas on ways to save for Daddy?

  • Breakfast Papa style. Forget the toast and jam and fruit salad in bed. Daddy needs a man's breakfast. Hang up a banner the kids made and try some sausage and egg biscuits, egg in the basket or pancakes. All of these will cost you around $2 for the whole family. 
  • What we love about dad box. There is no better way to celebrate Dad than to just tell him how much you love him. Have the babies write down everything they love or like about their dad on strips of paper. Then fold them and put them in a pretty jar, or a shoe box the kids decorated for him. He'll like this way better than a tie.
  • Hobby Day! My husband loves to fish. So a great Father's Day gift would be if everyone in our house would slather on the sun screen, grabbed a fishing pole and went down to the local free pier. (If your state requires a fishing license for those 18 in older then everyone will need one, but they are usually around $20 and can be used over and over.)
  • A move for the man. If you have a digital camera, and I am guessing that you do. Have the kids, or yourself, record some of their favorite "dadisms." Then set them to music. You could also put together a slide show of your favorite family portraits.
