Things To Do On a Weekend For Little To No Cost

You’ve had a busy week, and you’ve worked hard. You deserve a weekend of rest and recreation, but your bank account doesn’t allow much room for that. Try some of these ideas for a weekend that requires little to no money.

  • Make a list of all your favorite movies, pop some popcorn, and get comfy while you binge watch as many movies as you want.
  • Camp out in the living room. This is fun with or without kids.
  • Have the knack for creating things? Start a new craft or do-it-yourself project.
  • Get some friends together and have a friendly competition of whatever you choose. Maybe it’s a sport. Maybe it’s a scavenger hunt. Be creative.
  • Try your hand at a craft class. Check out your local hobby and craft store to see what’s being offered.
  • Learn a new dance move from Youtube. Teach it to someone else.
  • Have a game night at your house and invite your friends to bring their favorite games to play.
  • Try some new recipes. Find a new dessert or main dish.
  • Head to your local library and find something that interests you whether it be a book, a book club, a free class or book club.
  • Have a picnic. You can have a picnic just about anywhere.
  • Go to a favorite place or find a new one to take photos. Share them on your favorite social site.
  • Decorate a room. Maybe it’s re-decorating a room, starting from the beginning, or maybe it’s just adding finishing touches.
  • Visit a relative. Spend the weekend together.
  • Jump in the car and go on a short road trip to a familiar or a new place and experience something you’ve never done.
  • Invite a friend you haven’t seen lately to lunch and reminisce about the good ole’ days.
  • Check out a new coffee shop.
  • Go bowling. Gather your friends together for a good time.
  • Go for a hike or a long walk.
  • Try Geocaching. Take a look at this free website for more information.
  • Find a great book that you can’t put down and snuggle under a blanket to read. Don’t forget your favorite drink and snack.
  • Host a themed party or your choice and have guests bring something. You could even “assign” them something to bring that matches the theme you’ve planned.
  • Go birdwatching or watch other wildlife.
  • Watch the sunset or sunrise. Find a good spot where you have no obstruction to your view.
  • Have a Random Acts of Kindness Weekend where you do several kind activities for others.
  • Do a genealogy search of your family. There are several websites that help with that and you can find information or groups that do genealogy searches at the library.
  • Organize your digital photos and videos. Create a picture book.
  • Volunteer somewhere. Choose a place that you know you can do a good job of serving others.
  • Go camping for free. Find one with this free campsite website.
  • Mentor a teen. Many teens today could use a good role model in their lives. Check out your local resources for more information.

Having a great weekend doesn’t have to cost much. Enjoy your time off doing something inexpensive or free.
