If you’re looking for something to do today without spending any money, consider these alternate options. Just some simple ideas for ya! Some are fun and others are productive. Nothing fancy, just some ideas that came to mind.

Here are 25 for you today, and I’ll post another 25 soon!

1. Go on a picnic with food you already have.

2. Call/Skype a long distance friend to catch up.

3. Visit a nursing home.

4. Pick wild flowers.

5. Mend that pile of clothes that needs mending. 

6. Go for a bike ride.

7. Read a book you already have. Don’t have any good ones? Read them all already? Trade books with a friend or hit up your local library!

8. Update your résumé.

9. Experiment in the kitchen. Use what you have on hand and come up with a new recipe!

10. Invite friends over for a potluck.

11. Start a prayer journal.

15. Make a craft with materials you already have.

16. Go for a walk/run.

21. Look online for free events around town.

25. Clean out your fridge. No matter how recently you cleaned it, it probably needs to be done again.
