Chances are you'll sing the big-screen blues or fight a cell phone craving during the week. Download this survival guide to help ease your tech withdrawal.
For the next seven days, follow the guidelines:
The Ground Rules
1. Cut out all technology—no televisions, video games, cell phones, computers, MP3 players or anything else you may use on a daily basis.
2. No eating out. Everyone must eat dinner at home as a family and brown bag it for lunch.
3. Curb your spending! The only items you can buy are groceries, and try to buy what you need for the week for $125.
4. Plan an inexpensive, creative family outing. You may spend a small amount of money on this if necessary.
5. Choose one family activity that gives back to others.
6. Mom and Dad: Plan one date night so you can connect as a couple.
7. No working late.
At the end of one week, see if you can go for another week—and create your own family rules!
