Have babies/toddlers/preschoolers? Want to get out of the house? My frugal solution is to join a MOMS club. I joined my local chapter when S was about 8 months old. My local MOMS club has weekly playgroups, monthly socials, and other fun weekly events such as ice cream socials, movie dates, park playdates, craft clubs, cooking clubs, visits to local attractions such as libraries and museums. Most events are free or available for a nominal (<$5) fee. Membership is on an annual basis and is about $50. Less than 5 bucks a month for lots of fun events!
I've met so many other moms in my area and S has made some new girlfriends too. :) Check it out!
