Down the Shore : I don’t need to buy everything to enjoy our mini vacation!

Every year we go to the shore and enjoy our yearly traditions of beach and boardwalk.  We love spending time playing in the ocean, eating the yummy boardwalk goodies like fudge, caramel popcorn and crab fries.  We always go to the boardwalk amusement park and ride all the fun rides.  I also enjoy shopping:  new sunglasses, new sundresses, new Havaianas Flip Flops for myself.  For my children I like to buy fun spinning toys, new plushies and t-shirts.  This trip will be a little different because I need to stick to my 2 rules:  I need more stuff going out than coming in and enjoy the experiences & not more souvenirs.  So for our mini vacation, I decided to stick to those rules as much as I could!  And I’m glad to report that I did very well!  I truly enjoyed the moments together as a family instead of enjoying the moments of shopping for new things!
