You don’t have to spend a fortune to have fun. In fact, some of the most memorable moments are free!
Finding time to have fun, and spending time with our loved ones, is important for so many reasons. Improved health, increased productivity, and overall life satisfaction. Yet, we tend not to prioritize it. Sometimes, the reason is a tight budget. Let’s nip that excuse in the bud now.
Here are just a few fun ideas on a tight budget:
A water gun fight in your own backyard
If you don’t already have some, you can buy cheap ones at a dollar store. Set up obstacles using things around your house, like boxes, laundry baskets, and have a blast!
Scavenger hunt at the park
You can create clues and hide inexpensive “treasures,” or have one “winner” prize, that can be bought at a local dollar store. Another prize idea that’s free is the “choose the next adventure” option.
A “day” road trip exploring a new town
Check out local tourist spots like state parks, window shopping (aka just looking), and more. TIP: Visit the town website for ideas!
Redbox Movie Night
Go grab snacks at your grocery store, including the box candies just like the movie theaters. Set everything up in separate bowls to make it more fun. Rent a movie from Redbox (or On-Demand) and have a very cheap movie night at home!
You don’t have to splurge to have fun and get in some much-needed quality time. The important part is making the time to do something you enjoy regularly. Now go have a good time!
