Tips on How to Have Fun on the Cheap

We all want to have fun with our friends and family, but no one wants to spend too much money these days. In fact, when many people started making spending plans, one of the first things to get cut was the family entertainment budget or the going out budget.

Fortunately, there are a number of fun things that you can do with friends and family members without having to spend a whole lot of money.  Most of these things are just as fun or even more fun than spending tons of money.  You might even learn a thing or two about your community or your friends when using some of these ideas.


Here are some tips from Agriculture Mortgages UK to follow for the same-

Movie Night

Instead of going out and spending about £10 per movie ticket and £12 per person on drinks and popcorn, you can have a movie night at home. If you spend a few dollars on some popcorn and some soft drinks at your local grocery, you will certainly save a great deal of money when compared to buying the same things at a movie theater. For a movie, you can either rent one or you can watch a movie that you already own but have not seen in a while.


Check out your local museums. Some of them are free to the public or free for kids under a certain age. Additionally, many cities have days of the week or the month where admission is free for everyone.

Visit a Farm

You can look in the phonebook and call a local farmer. A dairy farm is a good example. All you have to do is ask the farmer if he or she would be interested in giving you a tour of their place. This is a fun family activity, and you might even learn something.

Board Game Night

This is a classic favorite, and it is a great way to spend time with your family and friends. If you do not have many board games, which can be expensive to buy, try inviting friends over to play and asking them to provide the game, and you can provide the snacks and drinks.

Free Concerts

Cities and local universities often put on free concerts or other activities, especially in the summer.
