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.

“Dishonest money dwindles away,
but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.”

Proverbs 13:11
