Welcome friends old and new! I am so excited to have you over for my SITS Day!
If there is one thing I know, it is that life is busy and at times can be a little crazy. AND sometimes we forget that we all need a little fun in our lives! Fun On A Dime is a site geared for all…children, teens, single, married, Aunts/Uncles/Grandparents…I have got you covered! I try to incorporate a little something for everyone. Take a look around and find something fun to do! And because I know you are busy, jump on down to the “Short On Time?” section of this post for tips on how to get the most out of this site. I love comments and tips! So if you find an activity that you do differently, feel free to share your way in a comment or if you did one of the activities and posted it on your site, come back and share the link in a comment. I am so glad to have you hear!
How Fun On A Dime Came To Be…
I have always been
painfully frugal growing up and had tons of fun. A couple of years ago, feeling cooped up and weighed down by our living situation I realized that I forgot the basics of having fun! There is a phrase: Those who have time spend money and those who don’t have money spend time. I am a big believer of this phrase and the same is true for fun. And thus, I started to challenge myself to look for for more opportunities to teach, learn and have fun at home with my family spending as little as possible and use my resources and my own experiences from growing up. And thus, Fun On A Dime was born to keep track of all our fun projects. It has since morphed into a site to inspire other individuals and families with fun ideas to enhance their quality time together.
Short On Time?
Here are some quick tips to use Fun On A Dime the best way possible:
Skim through each page. When you find an activity or project you like, save it/email it/pin it/like it on facebook, skim the supply list for basics and then schedule when you are going to do it. I try to include a supply list and pictures for each activity so it is easy for you to see it (my kiddos do a lot better when they can see a finished version first). As much as I would love for you to read everyone, I would much rather you spend the time actually doing the activity than reading about it!
Use the menu tabs to navigate the 5 main categories. (Recipes, Tips, Crafts, Fun and Deals) Although, you are perfectly fine clicking through each page, but if you are looking for something in a specific category, like a game, the Fun Tab may help you find a quick activity.
Comment? Like an activity, but feel like you don’t have enough time to comment? One word or very short comments are totally OK in my book! I also realize that your time is limited, but I love to hear when others are enjoying what they are seeing and doing. Or better yet, just click the Like button! Also, good enough for me.
Send fun directly to you inbox. Sign up for the Fun On A Dime Newsletter and get all updates sent directly to your inbox where you can also save all the fun ideas you would like to do.
Have a fun idea? I would love to hear about it. 2 ways to do this: Link it up to Hi-5 Fridays, a party every Friday that is available for all to share their latest and greatest accomplishments (crafts, tips, recipes, successes, or anything else that you feel you deserve a Hi-5 for). Feel free to contact me via the contact form under About on the menu bar or email me at michelle (at) funonadime.net.
P.S. Don’t know what SITS is? Go check them out! The SITS Girls. I have learned so much and have met so many other great bloggers from their site. Thank you ladies for My Day!
