There are so many great ways to be entertained these days, especially if you are in a saving money frame of mind. A lot of people are in the same boat as you! A great way to have some fun whilst saving money is to look inwards at your community, and enjoy what is on offer there without having to spend unnecessary money.
Have Some Frugal Fun Volunteering
Volunteering is a great way to get out of the house and meet new and like-minded people. As you’ll be volunteering your services in your chosen area, you will be participating in something that is super beneficial and ultimately rewarding. There are so many places out there that are in desperate need of volunteers to give a helping hand. Good causes, sporting events, concerts and festivals all appreciate volunteers, and often compensate those willing to help out by giving them free entry into the event. Volunteering is fulfilling, you will learn something new and be entertained, whilst not costing you any money.
Attend Free Local Events
Something that I do regularly is check the local paper or community notice board for events in my area. I pay special attention to the events that are free to attend. The kinds of events that are promoted this way are band performances, usually in pubs or cafes, festivals, fashion parades, musicals, productions, open days, exhibitions and information days. All of which are mostly free to attend. I suggest you have a browse, and I’m sure you’ll find something free and fun to do this weekend!
Budget Friendly Attractions
To be entertained these days, doesn’t mean you have to spend a great amount of money. There are a lot of free attractions to go-see and attend that won’t break your budget. Some of my favorites include the farmer’s markets and art galleries. Even the park and beach are perfect places to go that won’t cost a thing!
