Use the following hacks or tips to make the best out of technology on a budget
- Introduce your children to the pleasures of family board game time and you can even go digital with this old school idea. Try adding board game apps like Monopoly, Scrabble etc., to their tech gadgets like iPads and tabs. These are quite enjoyable and inexpensive too.
- If you child loves DIY toys, give him/ her a tech-based toy like a DIY toy or include them while trying some add-on hacks like camera for drones, led light strips for their hoverboards and so on.
- If your children are avid gamers, try to procure games cheap. Most serious gamers never pay retail! There are online stores which allow gamers to buy and sell many used titles for gaming consoles. Browse these sites and you may find some great deals on your child’s favourite games. You can also try ‘online rental’ options to avoid buying expensive games which may fall out of favour after sometime.
- Downloads can also be budget-friendly. There are sites where you can pay and download music, apps, e-books and cool gaming stuff which are of good quality as that of their conservative gift-wrapped physical counterparts.
Try these options before you resign to an expensive gift this holiday season…
