3 Ways to Save Money This Weekend!

Friday! You made it! Time to relax and enjoy the weekend. While it’s always good to treat yo’ self, remember there are many things you can do without spending a fortune this weekend. Many of these things require a slight mindset change so that you can focus on activities that are readily available without spending money. Here’s a quick list to get you started!

  • Volunteer – anywhere. It doesn’t matter where – serve a meal at a local shelter, mow the yard of an elderly couple in your neighborhood or volunteer at a charity near you. If you are unsure where to start, you can get connected to endless opportunities through https://www.unitedway.org/get-involved/ . Changing up your routine of expensive nights out can not only help others, it can help you become engaged with opportunities you might genuinely enjoy.
  • Enjoy something you already have – Do you belong to a gym? Have a movie pass? A gift card laying around from a place you’ve never been? It’s easy to become stuck in our routines and miss a variety of things we already have available. Taking the yoga class offered by the gym you already belong to is a great way to change things up and feel like you are getting something more out of money you’ve already spent.
  • Go to a free museum or concert. Communities everywhere offer free entry to museums on certain days or free concerts in the park. Pack a sack lunch and go!
