Fun things to do on the weekend that don’t cost a thing


Most people spend their time looking forward to the weekend, there have even been songs sung about it. However, after a while, it can get difficult thinking up what you can do on the weekend without spending a load of your hard earned cash, and most people don’t have the kind of cash flow that can afford to do amazing things every weekend. However, there are actually plenty of things you can do at the weekend that don’t cost a dime.

Go to the park

People underestimate going to the park, and sometimes even pass it off entirely. However, the park has a lot to offer. Often it can be nice just to get out and go for a walk, if it’s a beautiful day then you will be able to make the most of the good weather, and it will likely make you feel much happier than just being stuck inside. You also have the option of taking a bicycle, making it even more of an activity. You can take friends, family, children or pets, and together you can play any outdoors game you come up with, like catch, tennis, or baseball. Obviously, if you want to spend a bit of cash, then the option is there, but it’s not necessary to have a great time!

Go to the beach

If it’s a glorious day, then you can also go to the beach for no money at all. All you need to take with you is a towel and maybe a parasol if you have one. You can take a packed lunch or a picnic, and enjoy a lovely day of fun by the seaside. If you’re brave enough (and it’s warm enough), take a swimsuit, then you could even take a dip in the sea.

Play board games or card games

The weather isn’t always forgiving, and sometimes you have to make your fun indoors. You can get out some of the games you have laying around at home, dust them off and have a game. Chances are, you’ve forgotten just how fun they are and will thoroughly enjoy having a go. Just a deck of cards has enough games to keep you entertained for an entire weekend.

Have a small garden party

If you invite your friends over for a garden party and ask them to bring their own food and drink, then you can all enjoy hanging out together without spending money you would rather save. Garden parties are lovely because you don’t need a lot of people or anything specific for it to be a great time, just a few people for good company. If you don’t want to invite friends, then you can always have a few family members instead, what time could be better?

Movie marathon

There is nothing wrong with organizing a movie marathon, whether you choose to do it on your own or with your friends or family. Chances are people have been waiting for the opportunity to join one, so you’ll be in luck, choose a great movie series, whip some snacks out of your cupboards and set yourself up for a weekend of movies and snacks; what could be better than that?

There are so many things you can do at the weekend; all you need to do is get creative! Which one are you going to try this weekend?
