Enjoy catch-ups over a walk

Walks were a big activity during the pandemic, and if you’re walking a little less now that things have eased off, it may be time to pick it back up again. Walking has many benefits for your mental health, and is a great excuse to socialize and catch up with friends and family. Best of all, it costs nothing, so you can easily fill your weekends with walking get-togethers to give your body and mind a boost.

Treat yourself to an at-home spa day

All moms deserve a treat, and on the weekend, it’s important to try and take some time for yourself. An at-home spa day could be one of the ways you can de-stress and give yourself a bit of a treat. Start with a nice bath and a playlist of spa music to get you in the mood, then follow up with some of your favorite treatments like a face mask, foot bath, or hair treatment. Taking a little time to yourself can be a real treat, leaving you feeling much more refreshed.

Get baking!

Baking is another fun and affordable activity that can put you in a great mood, and it’s something that the kids can get involved in too. Baking some sweet treats can make up for not heading out for a coffee or ice cream, and might even uncover a hidden talent too.

Enjoy a great night out… at home!

Want to enjoy the night out but without the cost? Why not have a night out at home instead? You can invite friends over, get dressed up and get ready for a night of music and dancing, karaoke, games – whatever you love to do on a night out. A ‘night out’ at home can be a lot of fun and much cheaper than going out – plus you can take your shoes off whenever you feel like it! Who says you have to miss out on the fun because you’re trying to save?

Finding budget-friendly ways to have fun on the weekend is tough, but if you start thinking creatively – you can do it. Even if you mix up some of your usual weekend activities with some ‘no-spend’ weekends, you can still save some extra money while keeping your weekends busy.
