25 Winter Activities That Are Easy On The Wallet

Creating a winter bucket list has become a fun tradition in my family. Once the bustle and fun of the Holiday season is over, winter can seem a bit depressing. The lights and decorations are all taken down and Spring seems years away.

The key to really making the most of the season is to find fun activities that you can do that will help you make the most of the long winter months before you get cabin fever!
