Having fun is one of the ways to lift your spirits and is exciting but also costly. However, you do not have to cancel fun because of the unnecessary expenses that come with it. There are other alternative ways of having fun without actually emptying your wallet.
Cook a meal together.
Baking this holiday season is a big pain, but there are things that don’t need to be baked such as meatloaf, pan-fried chicken strips or lemon crème brûlée. Anything you make together will create great memories and unique dishes for you to enjoy separately later on.
Get Together with Friends and Family .
Host a casual gathering at home where you can share a meal and some laughs with friends and family. Not only is this a great way to save money, it’s also a great way to get to know people in a more intimate way than you might through social media. Putting a face and name together can make socializing more personal and meaningful.
Playing an online game
Playing online games is fun and cheap because they are free and can be accessed at the comfort of your home. You just have to have a smartphone, tablet or laptop. An example of such games, my personal favorite, is Mr. Bean Splash Art Game: Draw, Color & Paint Scenes. This game could never be boring because it allows parents to bond with their child during playtime. It involves coloring and drawing. Each choice presents you with ten canvases that you can either draw, paint or color to your liking.
Having a pool party
Having a pool party is one of the ways to have people around and spending time with friends at low costs. All you need is to send out invites and everyone will show up in their bathing suits. You can participate in racing games or old casual conversation with your friends while enjoying the view.
Go on a picnic
Picnics are fun and quite affordable. It only requires you to carry packed meals or quick bites already available in your kitchen. Picnicking allows you and your loved one to enjoy fresh air while catching up or even participate in games such as poker outdoors. Picnic setups can also provide good environments to make memories with friends and family by taking unique and quality pictures and videos.
Watch a movie or a series
There are so many online television and movie services with affordable monthly subscription fees. Few examples are Netflix and Hulu. They are packed with a lot of television series and movies you can binge watch the entire weekend with your friends and family or alone. Apart from the monthly subscription, you will only need popcorn or pizza to enjoy your weekend.
Clean out your closet
Cleaning does not sound like fun but cleaning out your closet is! You can get out all your clothes and try them out to see the ones that still fit and are still your preferred style. You can spice up things by filming the entire process to show out to your friends on Instagram and YouTube or have friends over and play clean and swap clothes with each other.
Having fun does not have to be expensive all the time. With the above suggestions you can keep yourself busy and entertained during your free time. Some of the suggestions such as watching and playing online games can be enjoyed solo but can also be enjoyed with friends and family.
