Spring Break Staycation ideas

Spring Break is quickly approaching in this side of the world (yes!). Here are a few ideas for you.

Log on to the Cheapo sites - there are a million out there. Every city has a resident writer who does all of us a favor and looks for the deals and freebies. A word of caution is that some sites are completely for advertisement purposes so do what’s best for your family.

Make a list and check it twice - our family has a mental list of place we’d like to go. One of them is a famous Ethiopian restaurant. The kids keep asking about it so that will be on my list of things to do. Writing things down guarantees that you will have plenty options for the question what should we do today.

Get some rest - Remember how tired you were during the holidays and after they were over? Spring break week is a good time to rest. Sleep in. Take a siesta. Give your brain a break from the news cycle. It is important to feel recharged after Spring Break. Your health always benefits from rest. 

Declutter - If you have an area of your home that’s driving you nuts, Spring Break is a good week to Declutter. You don’t have to Declutter your whole house. Even if all you do is to switch your kids wardrobes from winter to Spring, count it as a win.
