10 ways to have fun without spending a dime

10 ways to have fun without spending a dime

How can we have fun without spending a dime?

We’re lucky these days as budget-friendly fun has never been easier. There is an ocean of information available to us at all times, and we can learn new things through the internet in the comfort of our own home. 

Much of the information is available to us for free. We can even hang out with our loved ones virtually!

Even during challenging times like this we can have as much fun as ever before. It is important to our health and well-being that we allow ourselves to have a good time and schedule in time for joy

So, here are ten examples of budget-friendly fun:


1. Throw an online dance party

A little robocop, a little running man! Gather high-vibe people for a party online where one of you is the DJ, or you can take turns.

Get into the groove, hang out with cool people and dance the night away.  What’s not to like? 


2. Let your child guide you for the day

Get into the magic of being a kid again!  Kids create fun out of thin air. They can turn the living room into a village and transform the backyard into Narnia. 

Children are joyful and curious. They can help us rediscover the world and perceive even the most boring tasks in a new fun way. They embody the truth that pretending and playing can be just as fun as the real deal.

If you don’t have children, then tap into your inner child. What did you love to do when you were a kiddo?

Think back to the times when you really enjoyed yourself. Create a list of the things that lit you up inside. Effortless brainstorming can lead to a breakthrough here. No matter how silly the idea sounds, go with it.


3. Do something you consider to be boring and make it fun

When you think “fun”, reorganizing your garage may not be the first thing that comes to mind.

However, it is possible to make it fun. Before you begin, create a playlist of your favorite songs and allow yourself to listen to it while you do the thing you don’t consider to be fun. Discover that with the right beat, even the most boring of tasks can become pleasurable.


4. Throw a dinner party at home

If you love to go out for dinner try cooking a home-made meal. Choose a dish from your favorite recipes online and set the mood.

Put some music on that fits the scene you’d like to create. Light some candles, pull out the fancy dishes and cutlery, throw on a sequin dress, and you are ready to go!


5. Imaginary travel

Even if we cannot travel to some of our favorite locations, we can still travel inwards.

Books are a wonderful way of exploring exotic places from the comfort of your own home.

Sink into your favorite chair. Seek out great fiction with unique and exciting stories and gather the whole family to travel through your imagination. It’s amazing and very budget-friendly.


6. Host a talent show in your living room

You don’t have to be artistically gifted to make this fun, the talent can be anything. You can even show up doing something you feel you are really bad at –  sometimes laughter is the gift that keeps on giving. Bring the whole family together or invite friends to participate online.


7. Try the things you’ve always wanted to try.

Trying new things is always fun and expansive. Maybe you have a guitar in the attic that you’ve never used. How about learning to knit a scarf?  Or fostering that talent you have for creating art.

This is a great time to unleash your creativity. Find some free or budget-friendly lessons on the internet and enjoy yourself.


8. Work out in nature

If you have a walking path, bike trail or playground near your house, bringing your exercise routine there.  You can have fun creating new ways to move your body!

Unlike the gym, it’s completely free. At the same time, you can get in an intensive workout. This is a lot of fun and is reminding us that workout-time can in fact be playtime.


9. Glow up!

Treat yourself to an at-home spa day where you take excellent care of yourself. Take a long, hot bath, put nail polish on, meditate or do an online yoga class.

Have a lot of fun engaging in self-care activities or have fun learning about ways to expand your consciousness.

At home spa-days can be very budget-friendly. Go on YouTube and find soothing, beautiful music. create a home-made face-mask with whatever ingredients you have in your fridge and cupboard. Give yourself a lot of love and glow inside and out!


10. Create a jazz café outside of your house

Bring some furniture outside. Put on some music that fits the vibe and invite a friend to join you at home or online.

Make the environment exactly as you like and enjoy yourself like you are at your favorite café downtown.

Having fun is a choice

No matter what circumstance we find ourselves in the midst of, we can choose to have more fun.

Get into the habit of asking yourself: “How can I make this more fun?”

The ideas listed in this article are just that. Ideas.  And your idea of fun may be very different.

So, tune in to your own heart and know that there are no rules.  Every day can be magical and fun!

We can’t control everything that happens in life, but we can control how we respond to it. We always have the power to transmute grey into orange and boredom into fun. We can choose to feel joy whenever we desire.  And if you need a little boost you can always look to some protection crystals and healing frequencies!


Thinking about fun things to do at home and things to do without spending money is incredibly valuable. Internalizing the truth that you can have an amazing time while staying at home and not spending a dime gives an immense sense of freedom.

The freedom to rest into the knowing that you don’t need permission from external forces in order to feel joy and have fun. It’s completely possible to have a blast with whatever you’ve got in this moment. Be a rebel. Tune into your own soul and go ahead, have some fun!
