So the Easter Weekend Holidays have just passed…. Hmmm this means you could be looking for inexpensive ways to spend this weekend!
Well, if we believe the weather reports, the weather in Europe at least is expected to be nice. For the worlds forecasts check The Weather Channel
Ok, here is a did you know moment… because today is the first real warm day of the year, in The Netherlands they call it “Rokjes Dag” translated means Skirt Day… And you got it, I’m in a skirt with sandals.
Anyways…. enough about fashion and back to our mission, what to do this Weekend! So with good weather comes many outdoor festivities and lots of them are Free!
Just to help your brainstorming, here are 10 general events/activities you can look out for:
1. Flowers or bird show exibits
2. Picking your own fruits and Vegetables at farms
3. Children Farms (to play with animals)
4. Beach sculpting exibits
5. Public parks open up facilities (have a picnic)
6. Meetup clubs to have city tours
7. Different markets that offer diverse produce and products
8. Neighborhood/Block activities (mainly for children)
9. Dating sites offer specials (Hey, have to also cater to singles!)
10. Try the free dance open days
Now really… No more complaining that this weekend there is nothing to do or everything is too expensive, especially after you mostlikely went all out for Easter!
So get out there and have a SpendLess Weekend!
When I was younger I use to write poetry. Awhile back I started again, but just kept them in a box.
So this week, I will try something new and share a poem that deals with poverty.
A legacy of Poverty…
Can’t nobody be Rich… Wait No, can’t I be Rich?!?!
Sh*t the money and the problems seem to hit like a tidal wave… one minute I can pay bills, greet the morning with glee, oh but once again there comes Mr. Jackal to turn misfortune around on me!!!
How does he sneak back so quickly… Taking once again everything from me? Each time a little bit more than before!
I’ve never been in a poor house! They told me to work for the freedom to make choices that suit me.
… But what are the choices I keep stumbling over and over like a Jacka** refusing to walk another path.. Hitting the same stone, which gets exposed even more with every erosion of years gone by!
Foolish foolish, this has gone on way too long… But has it?
Maybe come a new year, just maybe this time I leave the path that keeps causing the pain… Do I dear leave all I have ever known to start all over again?
Amazing how I will erode my legacy, one that creates only poor lasting memories… My biggest fear, to be thrown in a hole and forgotten as no tombstone lies marking my existence… Not even to say, “She Lived, Struggled and Died!”
My legacy to the next generation… Only a path that has kept Us POOR!

Have a great week!
Today is the start of our weekend blog series. Every Friday till the end of October, I’ll post a Personal Finance Tip for the weekend and share a motivational picture…
Hope you enjoy this series and please feel free to share any Personal Finance Tips for the weekend.
Here we go!
Personal Finance Tip for the weekend:
Go for a walk with no particular direction!
Spring has just started and this weekend ‘Day Light Savings Time’ goes into effect… So why not
just go walking in whichever direction looks the most interesting?Having some basic navigational skills, means you won’t get lost, and you can turn around or backtrack whenever you get bored or hit a dead end.
Hmmmm… I must say this idea you’ll have to be a bit optimistic with, especially knowing we can’t control the weather. But all in all… It’s low cost activity!
