We were set a challenge by Ford to get as much out of a weekend on a very small budget while trying out the new KA+. You may have read our first post about this weekend were we explored Tredegar House, a National Trust Property we had yet to visit and gave us a chance to use our family pass. On the Sunday we had planned to drive up to the Brecon Beacons but after a jaunt into the city and the changeable weather we decided to stay local and go to a nearby country park which was not only fun but also very budget friendly.
So we packed the car up with the boys two scooters, a few snacks and headed off to have some outdoor fun. I was really pleasantly surprised at how much the boot of the car can fit in, we had no issues getting in both scooters, our wellies, backpack and bag of snacks and still have plenty of room left. Two days before this I tried out getting my youngest pram into the boot as my mother use to have an old KA and I could never get it in but good news is that the new Ford KA+ is far more spacious and I had no problem fitting it in. We also packed some bird seeds to feed the resident swans and geese and a hot flash of coffee to keep John and I warm.
I initially thought we may go over our budget of £25 but we managed to fit two great days out for just under that. The thing is that enjoying your surroundings really doesn't need to cost loads and kids often want for nothing more than some sticks, muddy puddles and trees to climb when outdoors, as long as you keep things simple it's pretty easy. Most of the budget went on food and the two picnics we put together but had we ate out both of those days it would of be far more expensive. Luckily the new Ford KA+ is really fuel efficient and you get a lot of millage for your pound, as well as some great extra features such as seat warmers and rear car sensors.
You can see everything we got up too and what we spent our budget on in our little action packed vlog of a budget friendly weekend with the Ford KA+ and we would like to thank them for having us involved and asking us to take part in this campaign.
