Why wait for fate to plan your date when you can have the most fun with only a little money, and just a little planning? How many times have you sat around with friends and family pondering what can be done with free time, but no one can come up with anything other than dinner, rent a movie or to go see one?  BORING!  But what about other times when no one has the money to go out? Does that mean you have to stay in and watch TV?  No way!

Having a fun day out with family, friends, your boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse does not have to be a costly affair. Many fun and fantastic date and outing ideas will cost you very little money if any. The following is just a list of a few ideas that will help you when everyone is stuck for an entertainment idea, or short on cash.

This list of fun ways that you can spend time that either cost very little money or none at all (there are expensive, but most are not). Some of these are seasonal or are conducive to areas that have a specific type of weather.  

  1. Go ice-skating on a pond (you will need ice skates).
  2. If you own a motorcycle, take a ride around your neighborhood.
  3. Barbeque (grill out).
  4. Build a sand castle and barbeque at the beach.
  5. Check out local farms in your area. Some of them may have free tours of their facilities and tutorials showing how they are run, which can be very interesting and a great time. If you have a candy factory in your neighborhood, they often give free tours and free samples too!
  6. If you have a fireplace, curl up next to a fire and listen to music, dance by it or watch a movie. Make some popcorn and talk about past fun times and laugh. If you choose to dance by the fire, just move some of your furniture to accommodate you and have fun.
  7. Dare to dream together about fun things you want to plan for the future. Think outside the box. There is an old saying: “I asked God for a quarter and a quarter is what I got. What I didn’t know was, I could have asked for a $1.00 and He would have given it to me instead.” So think outside that box!
  8. Purchase some stale bread at the bakery or the store for $.75 (or free at some stores) and feed the ducks at your park if they allow it. While you‘re there, why not go fishing?
  9. Go out for a cappuccino or an ice cream.
  10. Many theme parks have nightly firework shows. Why not pack a car picnic bag and go to the edge of the park, park your car where it’s safe and legal to do so and have a picnic under the fireworks?
  11. Check out your local pet store and check out the animals. It’s like going to a free zoo.  Some cities also have free or very inexpensive zoos. Why not visit one?
  12. Go to a chess cafe and learn the game or play if you know how. Some parks have chess games going on, and you can get into the action free.
