Free Fun

We’ve all tightened our belts recently, but belt tightening doesn’t have to lead to the “same place, same thing” syndrome. There are lots of fun things you can do for free:

  • Visit a museum on Free Friday
  • Take a cup of tea to your favorite park bench
  • Go on a photo safari with your digital camera, try to see your neighborhood from a new perspective
  • Download some podcasts from iTunes
  • Watch the waves crash on your local beach
  • Visit a park and listen to the birds sing
  • Make cookies (sugar free of course)
  • Meet your neighbors
  • Look at old pictures
  • Play cards
  • Rearrange your furniture
  • Do a puzzle
  • Sit by a fountain
  • Start a journal
  • Hold a baby
  • Start a book club

Almost Free

  • Find the pennies in your couch and to go a movie
  • Play an old videogame – I loved Galaga and Pacman myself
  • Use a coupon to get a free yogurt
  • Host a potluck
  • Use your Starbucks gift card
  • Get a coffee and read in Barnes & Noble
  • Find a two for one meal at a low cost restaurant
  • Buy a beach ball at Riteaid (I recently did this!!! It was fun!!!)

Here are some websites to help you find free places to go:

Free Places to Go in Southern California: Daytrippen

Remember, if you get creative, there’s plenty of free fun!
