Even if you’re extremely focused on saving money, it shouldn’t necessarily mean that you can’t go out and have fun. Check out these “free fun” resources:
- Google – It might seem obvious, but simply googling “free things to do in enter your town here” can kick up all kinds of interesting results like a free day at the art museum you didn’t know about, or a musical performance in a nearby park.
- Meetup.com – Meetup is the world’s largest network of local group meetings in the world. Its entire purpose is to bring people together to do whatever it is they like to do – quilt, ice skate, wine taste, kayak, meditate, etcetera into infinity. A minority of groups charge a participation fee (usually for rental space or equipment) but the majority of meetings cost nothing at all. Signing up is free and simple, and it’s a great way to meet new people and try new things.
- Have a pot luck – Here’s a retro concept that should be dusted off and put to good use. It’s a great way to have a party without spending a couple hundred dollars, and the retro-quaintness factor is bound to make it a success. You can make things fun with a theme like “food from around the world” or “you bring desserts, we provide the coffee.” Pot luck parties are also a great way to make a party out of televised events like big sports games, tv finales, or minor holidays.
