Celebrating Family Day on a budget

    Pizza 73 and financial coach provide tips to stretch your family activity
    dollars further

    EDMONTON, 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 73 / Pizza Pizza have 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 73 / 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 73 / 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 affordable Family Day activities will be available through Pizza
73's website, along with general money saving tips and advice to help
customers better manage their personal finances.
    In addition to Robin's tips, starting on Family Day, Pizza 73 will also
be 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.
