October 5*: Frugal Fun Day

The first Saturday in October is Frugal Fun Day! The goal of the day is to do at least one fun thing for $5 or less.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • play disc golf (free, if you’ve got the disc)
  • go for a walk in the park and stop at the playground for a bit
  • watch a movie at home with your sweetheart
  • get friends together for a game of basketball, touch football, ultimate frisbee, or whatever floats your boat
  • play a board game or do a puzzle with the family (I’m sure you’ve got plenty hanging around the house!)
  • go window shopping (you can take $5 cash, but nothing else!)

Find more info and lots of suggestions from the holiday’s creator,¬†Shel Horowitz.

but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.”
