Beat the Winter Blues in Kansas City

Got a case of the Winter Blues? Well you are not the only one I can assure you! With a combination of below freezing weather, driving conditions, shorter days and kiddos out on Winter Break it's enough to take a toll on any Savvy Mama! 

If you are anything like us, you want to get yourself and family outside and a little more active but finding things to do on a budget seems almost impossible! Preston and I have decided that you have to be almost filthy rich to keep your family stimulated in a healthy way during these bleak winter months! 

Here are a few ideas for a budget minded family to keep their calm and carry on throughout the chill!

Weather permitting a drive  located approximately 25 miles West of Topeka, the kids can take in a tour of the manufacturing facility while you enjoy the Coffee and Free samples! I adore Grandma Hoerner's Big Apple Slices and was so excited to take in (litterally) the rest of the products that Grandma Hoerner's has available!
