We all talk about saving money, always looking for a mid-season sale, planning a budget (that we never really follow), just to save some extra bucks but are we sticking perfectly to it? We do, during weekdays as we have a tight schedule but when the weekend begins, all hell breaks loose. Meals out, trips to the shopping center, movies…sound familiar? It’s a vicious cycle. But, hey! I don’t blame you. Friday happens to be my favorite day of the week as well.
Saving money doesn’t have to start when you are on the verge of being broke. There are many fun things to do without money, and weekend happens to be the perfect time of the week. But before that let me put down some ground rules for this money free weekend a.k.a No Spend Weekend.
- You’re not allowed to spend a dime.
- No quick dash to the store
- But you can use utilities that are already present.
Follow these rules and you are guaranteed to have a money-free weekend which is not only amusing but will fill your time without emptying your wallet and I am going to tell you not 10 not 20 but 100 things to do on a weekend with no money. Read below and you can collab as many as you want.
P.S. #2 #12 # 18 #29 #65 #97 are my all time favorite
It’s a nice start for the day if you don’t have a regular fitness regime. Not only hiking is a great cardio but the view from the top of the hill is always breathtaking. Pack yourself some breakfast and go at your pace even though the path you travel will be same each hike gives a unique experience.
2. Board Game
Board games are always fun, takes a lot of time and are a complete stress releaser, an excellent example for any money free weekend. My favorite has to be the twister, it is not exactly a board game but really enjoyable with your friends. So, grab one of the board game you haven’t played in ages and call your friends or family, the more the merrier.
3. Have a DIY beauty day
The average trip to beauty salon cost $70 that is almost equal to saving $1,000 in a year by cutting your trip. Indulge your day in full head to toe pampering delight. You can also do little DIY to your family member as well and the frugal part is the entire ingredients are available in your kitchen itself.
Just experiencing one evening outside of our normal routine can make the rest of the work week more enjoyable. Look for a good campsite or campground around your area and be quick as nearly 14% (40 million) Americans loves camping especially during summer. Don’t want to go anywhere? Try camping in your backyard.
5. Have a bonfire
Want to brag about your Boy Scout abilities, start building a fire from Stone Age time or throw a competition of who can make fire first. All you need is some wood and open space, a money-free weekend and there you go – roast some marshmallows, make smores, sing and maybe even tell a ghost story.
Gardening is no longer a cheap activity but you can still make it according to your budget, plant the seed of fruits you eat or buy it they are not that expensive, join community gardening group (you can get free plants), or grows some vegetable. Want to be little mischievous? Try your hands at guerrilla gardening.
Being healthy is always on our New Year resolution list and if you have been putting it off, money free weekend is an exact time to launch it. Most basic exercise does not require any type of equipments, add some music to keep your mood steady, figure out which workout you require, talk to any gym trainer if you can. It is one of the few beneficiary things to do on the weekend without money.
8. Do the “In-law” hustle
Have nothing planned for the weekend, go visit in-laws. You might be thinking to put this option as your last resort but look at this way, you don’t have to do all the chores by yourself, they will look after your children plus you can score a free dinner. Invite your sibling and play some game it might turn out to be a fun thing to do without any money.
9. Binge-watch your unfinished TV series
I don’t know about you but I have a few handful shows which either I have not started or left unfinished and is not possible to watch during weekdays which leaves weekend to be the only time of the week to complete the arc without any distraction.
10. Explore a creepy haunted house
The beginning of the summer is when all the spooky attractions start to open again. You’ll start to see a haunted house and panic room pop up across the state and to make it a money-free weekend why not visit the actual house. This option is not for faint of hearts but if you are horror buffs or just having the itch of doing outdoor activities with friends why not give this a shot, or you can even explore an abandoned house which will give you equal chills. Want to make it really scary? Try visiting at night.
Almost every neighborhood has its own local park. Make a goal to visit every other park in your area. Pack your lunch, call your friends, pick up a Frisbee and keep going for hours. Enjoy the swing or rides or just watch people. All summer long many park host free movies, bowling event or a free concert. This is a very relaxing way to chill with your friend and family on hot summer money free weekend night.
Become a Masterchef of your house. Give yourself the challenge to make or invent a dish out of what has been left in the kitchen. Often time we are so busy during the week that making a dinner goes out of the list. But a money-free weekend can give us enough time to prep our meal ahead of time. Prepare some casseroles, pasta, soup, bread all at once and store them in the freezer and reheat them whenever you are hungry. There are many make-ahead meals in a jar recipe which you can search on the internet.
13. Sell Used Stuff
Clothes, clothes everywhere not a single thing to wear, well if that is what you say, then why not try selling it. Poshmark is one such king of app where you can earn money by selling your clothes. There are options for children and men as well. Shifting places? Sell your furniture at Trove. Swappa is another app to sell your gadgets online. Some other sites to sell you stuff are Craigslist, eBay, Letgo, Varagesale.

14. Call Your Family
“I’ll call you later” but the later never comes, we get busy in our schedule and we never get to call our dear ones. But money free weekend is what helps us to connect with them once again and to make it even more frugal Whatsapp them, even better- call them on Whatsapp or Skype them.
Great decorating doesn’t have to cost a fortune — in fact, it doesn’t have to cost anything! Even shifting the furniture can give your house a new look. Search your attic put some old painting on the wall, your children have put pen or crayon marks on the wall? Convert it into a beautiful design, ditch the old wooden stairs and add color to make them pop. Use your imagination, get creative and this can be your fun things to do without money.
16. Delete Your Bookmark
Often times when I am surfing the net I come across a few posts that are interesting to read but due to the shortage of time, they are dumped into the bookmarks section and forgotten. To support the spirit of money free weekend don’t just keep scrolling down the same post on Instagram, instead, delete those pages and organize your bookmark.
17. Visit Your Grandparents
Summer gives us an inevitable question: Now that we are home all day. What to do? So why not try to rebond with your grandparent. Spend time with them, help them with harder chores, listen to their story and let me tell you one thing eating your grandma’s delicacies is something which can’t be compared to any Michelin star restaurant.
18. Take a Power Nap
One of the reasons why I love Friday is that I get to sleep longer the next day. No alarms, no disturbance just me and my bed. If you are trying to be productive during this money free weekend having a power nap of 1-2 hours can be a real energy booster.
19. Read a book
My motto for this activity is – read what you love because not many of us are a bibliophile. Some just read to kill their time, while other reads to get inspired. Whether it is a magazine, comic book or novel read what you love. Public library store offers free books and even e-books and audio book which can be expensive if you order. Exchange books with your friends instead of buying it. Books can help us learn many things whether it is about finance, life, relationship or anything.
20. Go Geocaching
Remember the time we were all crazy about pokemon-Go? Going here and there just to catch pokemon. Well, it’s time to catch some real treasure. Geocaching is a type of scavenger hunt where using the GPS we locate small treasure as we proceed in the game. It can be a really fun thing to do without money. Even if you are going for a hike or taking a stroll in the park. So invite some friends or family and make a contest out of it.
21. Practice Yoga
A normal work week leaves you feeling stressed and tired. Why not make the most of your money free weekend to recharge in one of the most invigorating way possible. Treat yourself with a yoga retreat. Start practicing with some basic yoga session and increase your level with time. It not only increases your concentration and flexibility but can also turn out to be a powerful workout.
22. Get Your Makeup done for free
Whether you are going for a date, prom or just spending your day at a mall, almost every makeup store offers a free makeover to promote their products. You can ask for a free trial and they will gladly do it which save your one trip to the salon and you get to try their newly launched makeup product which you might not even buy.
23. Have a Me Time
We make plans, go out, have fun, but in the end, we are left exhausted. Many a time, our weekend is planned according to what others want to do, when all you just wanted was to sleep a little longer, see a TV shows, cook a meal or get some exercise. Leave your weekend up to you, do whatever you like but make sure it’s money free.
24. Organize Your Wardrobe
Yes, you heard it right. It’s time you clean your closet because all those 5 days of grabbing whatever comes first and shoving all that you can. Clear your closet, organize them in a neat way, and mend if it needs to. Too many clothes? You can sell the unwanted. If you take time deciding what to wear. Bombfell is one such site where men can dress up according to the stylist with what you have in your closet.
25. Visit The Church
Bring out the theist in you. Not only does it increase your belief in god but it helps you meet new people, calm down your mind, and helps with your interpersonal skill.
26. Go on a Bike Ride
Cycling is one the simplest way to tone your body, so on this money-free weekend, get your helmet and bike ready and get going. Discover new ways which you haven’t travel, or go to the park, almost every public park has a cycling trail. You can also use your bike for small distance travel which can help you cut down your gas cost.
27. Science Experiment
Children are born curious, they have hundreds of whys to every question. To engage them in some fun and educational activity, try experimenting inside your house with the ingredient available in the kitchen. Make volcanoes, invisible ink, microwave soap. Take help from the net. What else can be a better thing to do on a money-free weekend?
28. Start a Blog
Share your thoughts and ideas with the internet. You don’t have to be pro at it, we all learn as we progress. Select your genre, and a platform and start making content, you only have to consistent in it. If the blog is too much you can keep a journal with you, at the end of every day, pen down your thoughts which can help you give inside out of every situation.
YouTube is one of my go-to sites if I have nothing better to do, from listening to music to watching shows. Almost everything is available at it. Many concert or performance is being shown live on YouTube. This money free weekend put your favorite song on autoplay and indulges in other chores. Want to earn money? Become a YouTuber.
30. Donate Blood
If you are a healthy individual with no medical record, you can easily donate blood and help those in need and it only takes 10 minutes. You can even make money by selling your plasma. Not just plasma, if you have time and ready to try different things to do on the weekend with no money, try making some money through your body (only legal stuff).
31. Clean Your Phone Memory
This is not ridiculous, no need to purchase an extra storage memory card when you can dump your stuff in your laptop to make some space for new photos, videos, app. Uninstall the app which you don’t use or just clean your cache memory. Let face it, out of all those songs and photos on our phone we only use few.
One of the best things about money free weekend is that not they keep us engaged throughout the day but it also put our attention to the thing which we might neglect. You don’t need to buy everything if it can be repaired whether it is some furniture or car repair. If you don’t know how, YouTube will always show you the way.
You have already cleaned your closet but what about the house? All the dusting, mopping is still left. One of the best ways to release stress is through cleaning, it’s like killing two bird with one stone. Organize your room, scrub the tub, toilet, floors, window sills, everything. And if you are in the mood for a deep clean, select one room per weekend and put your back into it.
34. Go to a Festival or Country Fair
Check your community calendar for some free festival happening around you. It’s a perfect day to plan your date. And if you can’t find some events, you can always make your own festival as well, invite your neighbors each house brings some snack, play some games, burn some fireworks (if you have any).

If you want, you can exchange it for any gift card from Amazon, Walmart and more.

You must be thinking – shopping?? On a money-free weekend? Sounds impossible. Let me make it possible. Wander around your community and see if there are some free garage sales going on. Go to a mall and just try on some clothes which you can never think to buy. It’s lame but better than sitting in your house and doing nothing.
You have already seen an example in #15 but there are many things you can also try your hand on – paint your house if you can, or those garden chair whose color has been washed off or just paint, make some scenery to decorate your house with.

All those pushups, crunches, squats are too much for you? Want to save money? Try canceling your gym membership. Still, you can maintain your shape. Dance is the best cardio exercise which doesn’t require any money. Don’t know how to dance? YouTube is your coach. So, at the next party, you don’t have to do the “I don’t know what to do with my hands” dance.
How can I leave singing out? I remembered my summer holidays when I use to organize a signing competition because we had nothing better to do, we went for hours until our throat get soared. It’s not something special but still, fit for the money free weekend trials.

It feels good when you can be of some help. Spend your day doing some work in an organization.
