There’s nothing better than getting out and about after a long week of slaving away at work. For most people, the thought of something fun to look forward to over the weekend is the only thing that is going to get them through the week. Even something as silly as spending the weekend sleeping is what a lot of people love!

If you don’t want to break the bank, but you don’t want to spend your life stuck inside, we’ve got some fun but frugal things to do on the weekend that we think you might like. Have a read on to find out more. I love meeting up with my girlfriends and here’s how we make it frugal and low cost. Below we share other ideas for fun but frugal weekends.
If you have never done an escape room before, then we recommend you try one out asap. They’re just so much fun, no matter who you go with. A lot of them are themed, and the object is to solve different clues to eventually find the key to get out of the room. An escape room really isn’t that expensive, and although you might not spend too long in there, it’s fully worth the money you pay. The more switched on you are, the easier it’s going to be for you to escape from the room. But a lot of people struggle with the clues, especially for the rooms that are a little harder than you might imagine escaping from. If you’re into scary things, then one of the haunted escape rooms is definitely going to be for you. You’ve got the pressure, coupled with the fear, coupled with bad decisions. Fear not if you don’t make it out of the room, it’s all about the fun and game that you have whilst you’re there. Plus, in a way, it helps to improve your communication and problem-solving skills!
The fee you’ll pay to get into a charity event is small, but the amount of fun you can have there is huge!! It’s all going to a good cause, and the buzz there is just electric. The charity fun days are the best ones to attend. There’s usually inflatable assault courses, live bands, and different stalls where you will be able to buy a range of different things. The prices you’ll pay at each stall will be minimal, and you could even create your own fun by going fancy dress!
Food markets are just the perfect day out aren’t they really. Some are free, those are the best ones to go to. Others you will most likely spend a small fee to get in, and the prices you pay to sample the different foods are generally low. A lot of the stalls will even be giving out free samples most of the time. So the day might be a completely free one! The foods you’ll get to try will be absolutely amazing as well, it just makes the perfect day out for a food lover.
