We’ve all been there, right? We’ve spent a little too much money, and it’s a few weeks away until your next paycheck. So now you’re broke and bored, so what can you do that’ll help with the boredom but not cost you money? Here are a few suggestions!
Play Video Games
You can spend hours on a video game, living out a fantasy life and there are so many to choose from. Driving games and adventure games will keep boredom at bay and doesn’t cost you any money to enjoy them...unless you buy more of them.
Invite some friends round, cook a big meal that costs very little and have an evening of gaming. It’ll be as much fun as it would going out and spending money.
Start A Blog
If you enjoy writing, then you might want to consider starting a blog. It’s a great platform to get your voice and opinions across to a wider audience and with blogging becoming even more popular, you could even make money from it.
It’s very simple to start a blog, and you can write about any topic you like from beauty to health, cars to gardening. The opportunities are endless!
Do A “Spring Clean”
Unless you’re one that hates tidying up, doing a spring clean can be a great way of decluttering your home and getting rid of stuff you no longer need. You can always sell anything of value too, so it’s a win-win situation.
Put on some music to get you in the mood and take your time with it. You can waste away hours tidying.
Work On A Skill
Perhaps learning a language is something you’ve always wanted to do but never had the time. With so much available online for free from videos to articles, developing a skill has never been so easy to do.
Think about what you’ve always wanted to do, write a list and get started.
Take Advantage Of Free Attractions
You’ll be surprised by just how many free attractions there are in your neighborhood, just waiting to be explored. From parks to museums, there’s plenty to do that won’t cost you anything at all. Check out local venues for free concerts and seek out food markets as they’ll tend to offer free samples that you can take full advantage of.
Have A Movie Night
Explore your DVD collection or see what films are available on any streaming services you may have like Amazon Prime or Netflix. A movie night is the ideal night in whether you’re on your own or with friends and family. Buy some cheap snacks, curl up in a duvet on the sofa and watch a film or two. Have a movie themed night where you watch films in the same genre or trilogies.
The best things in life are free, so when you find yourself struggling for cash, there are plenty of things you can do to help with the boredom and save on spending. It’ll bring around payday a little quicker, that’s for sure.
