Make This Weekend a Financial Fast

Going out during the weekend is a regular thing for many people, which means they probably spend more than they have to. If that sounds like you, try these tips this weekend to avoid spending any money.

Movie Night

Going to the movies is very expensive. Between the popcorn and tickets you could spend a lot. Instead, host a movie night at home. There are plenty of ways to find movies without paying anything extra. Invite some friends over or have a quiet screening. Make some snacks from what you have in your kitchen, relax, and enjoy!

Eat In

Eating out for a special occasion or celebration is great, but if it’s just another weekend stay in and cook from home. No need to spend money going out when there are plenty of ways you can make a restaurant quality meal right in your own kitchen. So if you would like to save your money and have a beautiful dinner at home, click here for some tips.


If you’re bored and looking for something to pass the time, but you don’t want to spend any money, try a workout routine. Exercise is great for the body and mind, and if you do it at home, it doesn’t cost a thing. Take an hour and try some physical activity. For some easy home exercises click here!

No Guilty Pleasures

Is shopping a form of entertainment for you? Even window-shopping can lead to buying items you don’t need. Stay away from any guilty pleasures that cost money. For an entire weekend, no frivolous spending. Try and get things done around the house, read a book, or have some quality time with your family.
