Celebrating Family Day on a budget

    Pizza Pizza and financial coach provide tips to stretch your family
    activity dollars further

    TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Between work, long commutes and the stresses of
every-day life, scheduling enough quality family time can be a challenge. For
years, Pizza Pizza has been bringing families together with quality food,
though family time doesn't have to be limited to the dinner table. To assist
families in spending more quality time together this Family Day, Pizza Pizza
has partnered with leading financial coach and chartered accountant, Robin
Taub, to provide consumers with ideas for fun and affordable activities that
work up a healthy appetite.
    "Pizza is the perfect food for sharing and is great for families as it
can be customized to suit everyone's taste," said Pat Finelli, chief marketing
officer at Pizza Pizza. "This Family Day, we've enlisted the help of a
financial coach to recommend affordable activities that can keep the family
together while enjoying the day."
    Robin's tips will be available through Pizza Pizza's newly designed
website at pizzapizza.ca and through the company's in-store circuit television
system. In addition to her affordable Family Day activities, Robin is also
providing consumers with general money saving tips and advice on how they can
better manage their personal finances.
    In addition to Robin's tips, starting on Family Day, Pizza Pizza is
offering two-for-one movie passes from Cineplex Entertainment with select
pizza orders.
    "Spending time together as a family doesn't have to break the bank," said
Taub. "There are a number of activities both indoors and out that families can
engage in that not only allow them to spend quality time together, but are
also fun and affordable."

    Robin's top five affordable Family Day activities this year:

    -   Skating: Indoor and outdoor rinks exist in most communities and in
        most cases are free.
    -   Tobogganing: This is an easy, affordable way for active families to
        spend some time together outdoors.
    -   Board games: A board game is an easy interactive way to spend some
        quality time together. This option is especially good for families
        who prefer staying indoors.
    -   Old family video marathon: Watching a series of your family videos is
        an easy inexpensive way to reminisce and spend time together as
    -   Digital photography: The winter creates beautiful scenery that can
        serve as a great back drop for family photos. Getting the family
        together, finding some prime locations and snapping some shots is an
        easy way to spend the day together and has the added bonus of
        capturing memories for years to come.
