Budget-proof Activities To Do This Weekend


Looking for something fun to do this weekend but feeling the pinch? You don’t have to spend money to have a good time! That’s why we’ve put together a list of our favourite budget-friendly ways to pass the time.

Go For A Hike

If the weather’s fine, and you’re feeling limber, there’s no better way to spend a Saturday or Sunday morning than popping on your walking shoes and getting that step count up. 

Bring a friend along and introduce them to your fit alter ego, Hike-al Jordan! Then afterwards, you can reward yourself with a coffee (a couple of dollars won’t hurt).

Host a Board Game Night

Call up your mates and organise a game of Cluedo! Or if you’re feeling particularly competitive (and don’t mind not seeing them for a few weeks after), dust off the Monopoly.

Ask everyone to bring their favourite board game and make a night of it. To make it even better, decide on a prize for the person that wins the most games. 

>Rearrange Your Furniture

If you’re getting a bit bored of your bedroom, but don’t have the time or budget to do a full reno a la The Block, just move some stuff around! 

You’ll kill a few hours, have a great new layout, and at the end, you get to enjoy a ‘new’ bedroom! 

Write a Bucket List and Complete One Item

Do you have a list of things you’d love to do someday, just floating around in your head? Grab a piece of paper, or a fresh notebook and jot them all down! 

Then, pick the one thing that’s most readily achievable (and within your budget) and do it! 

This could be anything from recording a song and posting it on YouTube, to going on your first 5km run.

Clean Out Your Wardrobe

Whilst this may not sound like the most exciting of activities, once you get going you’ll have a lot of fun. 

You’re bound to find clothes and other things you’d forgotten you had! 

To make things more fun, invite a friend over to help you decide what to keep, store and donate. You can even gift them some of the clothes you don’t want, as a thank you for their help.

Still not sure what to do this weekend? Head in to The Groove Train and enjoy our great range of delicious options!
