There is often no worse feeling than looking at your bank balance with the realisation that the next few weeks are going to consist of sitting around on the sofa watching movies. Although this can be a good way to relax, you don’t want to spend too many evenings doing this, or you will soon be climbing your four walls looking for an exit strategy. There are plenty of options around if you are looking for a fun way to spend your time without breaking your budget.
Throw a Party
The prospect of throwing a party might instantly fill you with the dread of the expense, but you can actually organise these without spending much or even nothing at all, if you play your cards right. There are all kinds of parties and they don’t necessarily mean that you have to run out and spend a fortune on drink and food to keep your guests happy. Think about the friend who has started their own candle/skin care selling business; we all have them and they are usually always nagging at us to throw a party for them so they can sell their products. Rather than declining their offer, why not agree and ask them to provide the refreshments. Everyone gets a party and you don’t have to put break your bank balance in the process. Other ideas are to throw a clothes swapping party or just simply tell your friends; you will provide the place to party and they can bring all the refreshments! You’ll be surprised at how many will agree to this.
There are many free cultural places you can visit around your local area and most of these won’t cost a penny. Think about the local library, park or museum. All of these can be enjoyed at little or no cost and can provide a fun day out with plenty to learn. If you think you need to update your cultural knowledge, this is the way to do it. You can even take a picnic along, so you are not tempted by any of the delicacies on offer!
There are lots of options to play free games and this can offer the perfect way to spend your day in an enjoyable way, without incurring any costs. One of these is poker, which you can either enjoy playing online or you can always set up a poker tournament with your friends without playing for cash. You can access FullTilt’s free version of the game and play until your hearts content. You never know, you might just become the next Gus Hansen! There are also a range of other free games which you can enjoy either online or you may wish to organise a games tournament to play indoors with a group of friends.
There are always options if you want to enjoy yourself without spending out with your means, if you are creative and willing to try new things, you will always find fun ways to spend your free time.
