5 Cheap Or Free Things To Do This Summer (Part 2)Posted: 13th of July 2015 by
If you are between years at school or college, it can be tricky to think of things to do to occupy your time – at least if you don’t want to spend loads of money on shopping and meeting up with friends for food and drinks! Even if you have just started work or are doing a summer job, you will still be hoping to find things to do in the evenings and on weekends that may be a little bit easier on your pay-packet. So, once again, here are a few ideas for things you can do this week!
- Plan A Holiday
OK, so you might not be able to afford that all-expenses luxury holiday to the Caribbean just yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dream! Head to a travel agents and grab some brochures, or simply hop online and do some holiday surfing. Whether you plan that once-in-a-lifetime dream trip or decide to look into something that you may actually be able to save up for soon is up to you, but it can be inspiring to look at different places you would like to visit…
Take it right back to junior school with an old-school style sleep over. Get some friends, some films to watch, and some snacks, then just relax and chat to your heart’s content. Sure, if you are over 18, you might want a drink or two, but don’t go overboard – it’s all about keeping it cheap, remember?
- Day At The Museum
A lot of museums are free or reasonably-priced to get in, and yet you may not have been to your local museum for years. Whether it is science, design, art, or history, visiting a museum can be a surprisingly entertaining way to spend a few hours. Plus, it gets you out of the heat of the summer sun (or showers!) without having to pay to get in!
- Catch Some (Free?) Live Music
A lot of cities put on special schedules of entertainment in the summer months, including live music shows. Have a look online to see if your local council is providing any live events over the summer. If not, check out listings for where local bands may be playing. Even if you have to pay a little to get in, or to buy a drink (if it’s in a pub), this is still a cheaper option than going to a well-known band or festival!
- Skip The Main Course
Who says you have to have a main course at a restaurant? Why not head out and just grab a starter or dessert, depending on what is your thing. Ordering a cheesecake or something else from the dessert menu won’t cost as much as having a full meal out, making it a nice way to go out without spending too much.
