What shall we do this weekend?
What a pain, you wait all week for the weekend and when it gets here you’re stumped for things to do, it’s make or break your weekend are you going to feel like you’ve wasted the weekend or are you going to feel like you’ve accomplished something?
What are people going to say when they ask you what you’ve done at the weekend and you’ve done nothing, what do you mean that you have better things to do than tell everyone what you’ve been up to every minute of the day on your favourite social network or taken a picture of your lunch.
If you are struggling for ideas, here is a list of 10 frugal activities you can do this weekend.
1. Go for a walk
Enjoy the great outdoors.
It’s easy to forget, outside of our cityscapes there is a great big chunk of nature out there ready to be enjoyed.
2. Take up a hobby
Not knowing what to do is no excuse for not starting something, learn an instrument, sew, knit. If none of these floats your boat then maybe one of these 150+ hobby ideas might help you decide.
3. Learn something new
Just because you left school (insert your own number) years ago, doesn’t mean that you have to stop learning.
There are great platforms out there that allow you to learn just about anything for free or on the cheap.
4. Use your TV subscription
You’ve paid for it now use it.
Watch a film, maybe one of the 7 movies about money I recommend, or is there a television series that catch up on where you can just sit on your sofa in your pants with the curtains drawn and your sweets all lined up on the table.
5. Have a clear out
Have a look around your house, you’ve probably got loads of things that you don’t need or want anymore. Maybe that exercise bike has served its purpose as a clothes horse or that spiralizer has just spiralized it’s last courgette.
Don’t just throw it away either, maybe there’s a car boot sale you can go to, sell it online or your local charity shop might benefit.
6. Go to a market or festival
Free food and drink!
If that hasn’t got your attention I don’t know what will. If there is a food market near you, you’re going to be able to try a lot of food, who needs to buy lunch when you can get it free.
If free food and drink isn’t your thing, try googling for markets in your area to see if there is anything is your thing.
7. Catch up with friends
If you’ve still got any friends left maybe it’s time to reconnect, you never know you might actually enjoy their company.
Enjoy a drink and reminisce about the good old days and plan for new memories.
8. Do some exercise
You don’t need that expensive gym membership that you bought in the new year to get fit. If you have a bike get on it, do some push-ups, if you’re up to it do some HITT workouts
This might come as a shock, but people still do read books. There a million to choose from, so there’s no excuse that there isn’t one out there for you.
Who said that you had to do anything anyway? It’s your weekend you can do whatever you want.
