Fun stuff to do with not too much money

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am off this weekend and I want to do something fun but its not pay week so I don't have much money.

Any suggestions? Outdoor stuff is fine, its supposed to be 24 degrees tomorrow.

My suggestions:

- picnic
- bike ride
- go outside, take pictures of spring flowers. Then you could have some printed and buy cheap frames for them. Or just take random pictures of your neighborhood. You could also walk around the neighborhood and take pics of as many cats as possible.
- go play outside with a dog (if you don't have one, just borrow one )
- hiking
- birdwatching (you can probably find a book of bird species at the library)

or the most fun activity of all.... come to my place and help me with my Spring cleaning

I was thinking maybe a picnic. I don't have a bike, I had an accident on one about 10 years ago and only rode one for the first time since that last summer. I do want to buy a bike eventually though.

I was thinking about going here. http://www.ontarioparks.com/ENGLISH/portb.html I have never been there before and its not too far from here.

All great ideas. Check out the local college and university web sites, too -- they have a lot of concerts, lectures, and other programs that are free and open to the public. Here in the States, libraries will lend DVDs and CDs as well as books -- do they do the same in Canada?

Have some people over for a potluck -- to make it more fun, have a theme, for example, get a movie and have people bring dishes related to the movie.

Whatever you do, have a great time!

The library -- not only books, but also movies, music, and even video games to borrow!

I was going to suggest Library too. Our library has a bench that sits right by the creek. Perfect place to take a book. I'm assuming you mean 24C, right? I think in F and was thinking it was a bit chilly, LOL.

Wow. It looks beautiful!!! Great place for a quiet picnic.
I'm jealous. I've been in the city for so long, I would love a taste of real wilderness!

It was 81F here today... I grabbed a blanket, the radio, my book and the dog and cat and hit the backyard for a few hours (you could do the same at a park, maybe without the critters lol)... cat was in his harness and on his tie out and he and the dog shared the shade spots (I had to bribe the cat with cookies cuz he didn't want to come inside!)... I on the other hand FORGOT MY SUNSCREEN! If you do go outside, remember the sun screen - it may be April, but my back is magenta colored tonite! Otherwise, I really enjoyed the day out there in the sun reading... nice change from the nasty coldness.. now to master the art of getting the Gold Bond Medicated Powder successfully on my back without making the bathroom look like a scene from the movie Blow....

And I just checked out that link - that place looks really nice! Just when I first read the name of it, I thought it said "Pat Burrell" an outfielder for the Philadelphia Philles!

Riding a bike, walking, going out to eat for lunch and sharing a plate, everyone has good ideas
