1. Take them to the library. The library is a great way to keep your children entertained. Not only does the library have free books, they also have free movies and music that you can check out as well. Many libraries also have free activities and programs for all ages from story time for toddlers and learning how to use the internet time for tweens and teens.

2. Buy in bulk and make your own snack packs. Buying items in bulk is much cheaper than buying individual snack packs.

3. Sell your children's clothes. Kids grow out of their clothes quickly, so by selling the clothing that they have outgrown you can buy new clothes for them with the money you receive.
