During fall I love to partake in as many typical fall activities as I have time for, and as my wallet allows since I am also just a university student. So, I need to go and find the most fun activities for fall that do not rob me of all my money, and I’ve found a couple fun things you can also do this fall, things that you can do with your friends, your partner or your family.
Visit a museum
Now I know this isn’t everyone’s idea of fun, but a museum doesn’t have to be an art museum. You could visit a science museum or a history museum for example. Another benefit is that students will often get a discount when visiting the museum, so it’s even cheaper than it already was. And if the museum bores you, then you can always enjoy some coffee in the cafeteria 😉
Go for a walk in the forest
Nature is rarely more beautiful than during fall when all the leaves turn color. I don’t know about you but I can spend hours admiring all trees when walking through a forest, or park if you live in a big city. It doesn’t cost you any money whatsoever, and you can end your walk by getting some hot chocolate at a café or at home if you’re on a very tight budget.
Make your own Halloween costume
With all the tutorials available on Youtube, it shouldn’t be a problem to find a costume you like and recreate for a lot less money. When you’re with a group you can even do a group costume, or a couple costume when it’s just you and your partner. Trust me that you’ll be able to find any costume you want to recreate online, and if you have no idea yet, then there are plenty of videos and websites to get some inspiration
Movie and snacks night
If you don’t really feel like going out, which I understand when it gets really cold, then this is a good option. Gather your partner or your friends and spend a night indoors making your own delicious snacks and watching your favorite horror movies or romantic comedies. It won’t cost you any money but it will be a lot of fun, trust me. You can find my favorite horror movies here, and you want some snack inspiration then leave a comment 🙂
Visit flea markets and thrift shops
There are relatively way more flea markets during fall, so grab your chance! Yes, you will be spending money, but most things are cheap so it’s better than regular shopping. Plus, this is your chance to score some awesome Christmas gifts without spending a lot of money, so ultimately you’ll be saving money
What ideas seem the most fun to you? I personally will try to do as many of these as is possible to have a fun and cheap fall 🙂
