Answering the age old question: "What do you want to do this weekend?"

We all live for weekends. Those do-what-I-want-where-what-I-want days are everybody's favorite, and we spend all week looking forward to them. But when they arrive, they go so fast, and we normally feel like they've wasted them by the time Sunday night rolls around doing the same things we always do.

No more wasting that precious time.

So, I've created a list of things to do on the weekends for you! From free to moderately priced, there is something for everyone!

What to do this weekend:


-Start your mornings with a cup of coffee and a game (farkle, cards, or whatever you own) One player games can be fun and relaxing as well!

-Visit the library. Libraries have books, but they can also have movies, tv shows, audiobooks, and CDs. 

-Create a restaurant passport for your town. Include every eating place you would like to try (you know, those places you drive by and think I should really try that place) Make a goal to get a passport stamp at each one! (aka check the boxes)

-Check out a park in your town. Walk around and talk with your spouse, ask a friend, take your dog, whatever - but get moving!

-Visit a secondhand store and "window-shop" Look for old treasures, scout out furniture for upcycling and redecorating, and laugh at weird, funny-looking things that you discover. 

-Walk around your downtown and discover new places! Walk into a shop, you've always seen but never checked out

-Pack a picnic and enjoy the outdoors with a friend or family member. 

-In the winter, window shop the mall and get some walking in where it's warm. Make lists of good gift ideas you see as you walk.

-Bake some cookies or other goodie to hand out to people at church and work. (or just to eat yourself!)


-Do a craft. Create some holiday decor (for whatever holiday is closest), paint a picture, color in an adult coloring book, etc. It's really relaxing!

-Try out the cheap seat movie theater in your town. If you don't have one, rent a movie at home, but go all out with blankets, popcorn, and snacks.

-Try a new dinner recipe. Find something that looks more fun than your average meal, get the ingredients and make a special dinner for your significant other or a group of girl friends.

-Sit in a cute coffeehouse, buy a delicious drink, and soak up some inspiration. Get work done, write a poem, blog, or paint a picture. Take some "me-time"

-Go see a high school basketball game, play, football game, swim meet, speech and debate meet or other club competition. It doesn't cost much at all, and supporting your community is never a bad thing!

Moderately Priced:

-Visit a "paint your own pottery" or step by step canvas painting business. You will have fun, spend a memorable afternoon or evening, and have something cool to take home. 

-Go to a local ballet, play, concert, production, or sporting event. You pick your poison, but the takeaway is the same. Go get some culture, and support someone's passion!

- Take a new fitness class like yoga or kickboxing. You will burn some calories, get yourself out of your comfort zone, meet new people, and maybe even have some fun.

  1. Recently, we've been trying to have a tradition of going out for breakfast at a little local shop every weekend--it only costs about the equivalent of $3 (USD) total--and it's so fun, it's worth it! I like to have a combination of downtime and getting work done time on the weekends!

  2. These are such fun ideas, especially for a broke college girl like myself! :)
