Do you like to have fun but don’t like to spend a ton of money? I can relate with you on this one. It sounds nice to spend a week on the beaches of the Bahamas for a week, but when I realized that it was going to cost me $3,000 to do it, I began to have second thoughts.

Sure it would be fun to relax on some amazing beaches, but to me it’s just not worth it to spend so much money for just one week of entertainment. I would rather stretch this amount of money across an entire year and do many little things that would be fun.

Here are some examples of what I like to do for fun, and what you might like to do as well:

Be Active

Getting outside and being active is often fun for me. If I can find a group of friends to play pickle ball, tennis, basketball, or softball, then my “fun bucket” becomes amazingly full. Take note that each one of these activities is virtually free, but can offer you hours and hours of entertainment! If you don’t enjoy being too active, then perhaps you can just walk around the block with a local friend.

Explore New Areas

Another things that can be fun is travel. As we already established though, traveling to the Bahamas might be a bit pricey, but what about vacation spots nearby? You could drive your fuel efficient car to these locations, set up a tent in the campground, and explore quite a wide area for very little money. Camping is a great way to have some fun while keeping most of your money in your pocket.
