March Break Staycation Ideas on a Budget
Before I give you suggestions for a fantastic March break on a budget, you need to plan in advance to disconnect. Yes, I mean from your phone, your e-mail, your twitter and facebook.
Try making yourself a schedule as to when and how often you will check your phone (every 5 minutes is not considered taking a break!) and put your phone on silent mode for the rest of the time. We all need time where we can commit to our family whole heartedly. I always laugh at myself when I say to my children, you aren’t paying attention to me and yet, very often I find myself texting someone and at the same time nodding my head to my kids as if I actually heard what they just said.
