If you’re anything like me, then the holidays are an indulgent time. I basically live my best YOLO life wanting to experience all the festive events, parties, gift exchanges and gift giving. It definitely has gotten out of hand in years past and once January rolls around I’m left with sticker shock that lasts well into the New Year. This holiday season I will be more conscience of not only how I spend my time but also my money. I have learned that I don’t have to say yes to every experience or buy every gift the kids ask for. Sometimes just being present is worth more than anything else.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit The onUp Experience at SunTrust Park in Atlanta. If you’ve never been or aren’t familiar with what exactly it is, it’s a free fan experience filled with interactive games and money saving tips and budgeting for financial confidence.
When Evelyn and I visited they were having a Christmas in July event where you could take free photos with Santa, eat some cookies and take home a lot of awesome goodies. There are interactive games and experiences for kids and adults … seriously it is fun for the whole family, for a group of girlfriends, or even on a date night. I didn’t even mention the best part, The onUp Experience is 100% free and open 365 days a year. Check out their calendar of events so you can plan your visit. Remember it is free and open to the public regardless if you’re attending a Braves game or not. There were kids of all ages and even young couples having the best time on the simulated pitcher’s mound, broadcast booth and virtual reality lounge where you get a behind the scenes sneak peek into SunTrust Park.
If you’ve been interested in learning more about budgeting, money saving tips or how to plan for your future then the SunTrust’s onUp.com has a vast library of tools, quizzes, calculators and worksheets.
