THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND (WHEN YOUR SAVING MONEY)

 

I really wanted to do another (things to do this weekend) post, but this time a version thats appropriate for when you’re saving up!

There’s always something we’re saving up for, and as much as I love browsing Boots, I have a wedding to save for!

 

  • Bake something delicious! With certain recipes like flapjack, there’s always those ingredients hanging around. I haven’t baked for quite a while now and I really fancy rustling something up that I can snack on through the week.
  • Go through your makeup and skincare collection. Chances are if you’re reading this, you’re also a blogger! Which means that we have a LOT of products (not that I’m complaining). If you have a spare afternoon and fancy feeling productive, create a pile of products that you didn’t get on with or don’t get the use out of, and see if your mum or friend would like them instead!
  • Walk. Where I live in Yorkshire, If I wanted I could literally walk with gorgeous green surroundings to another family members house. I really need to try and forego the quick car trip, get my trainers on and start calling in for a cup of tea (pre-warned of course). Especially when its sunny, there’s really not any excuse is there?
  • Blog. When your a blogger, once you have the weeks posts scheduled, you feel so much more relaxed. When I know I don’t have to run around trying to compile a blog post (with pictures included), I don’t have to stress about creating ideas on a whim and can enjoy my week and leave room to think about future posts within a more reasonable timeframe.
  • Relax. Yep, It’s me telling you to relax on a weekend. Shocker. But that’s what weekends are for right? Especially if you’ve done the above tasks, girl, you deserve chill. Get blankets, tea and Netflix. Plus, a snack. Because I’m really never without one.

 

Do you have any ideas for anything to do on a weekend whilst saving money?

    • It does take more than you think, hope you have a good time! x

  • I love this post, I really am trying not to spend at the moment, bar the occasional clothing item (a girl has to have clothes) and this is a perfect little post to help think of ideas, I am currently lying in bed binge watching girlboss on netflix and reading blogs, pretty perfect if you ask me!

    • That sounds perfect, I’ve got a few more episodes of that left actually x

  • Love your tips! Scheduling blog posts for the week is a great and productive way to spend the weekend. So is decluttering. You’re right when you say we should go on more walks, I always end up enjoying them when I do! xx

  • I absolutely LOVE a weekend walk – it really is one of the best weekend activities I think, especially if you need to try not to spend…really clears my mind and makes me feel a bit more sane too! I actually went through my make up today and have a nice little pile sitting here waiting to offer to my mum 🙂 Lovely post gal xxx

    • Fresh air always feels so good doesn’t it! Ah that’s great, I do the same with my mum and sister too! x

  • Walking is something I love to do. I live in Yorkshire too and it is just stunning (if you get the right weather)!

    • It looks so pretty there, definitely want to go one day! x

  • I’m currently saving up for moving house (so expensive!) AND a week in Florida straight afterwards, so I’ve been thinking about the ways I can lay-low for a while before, and then afterwards to recover! Watching Netflix is a firm favourite, but I don’t want to get cabin fever so going for walks is a great suggestion. Unfortunately my walks tend to be ‘window shopping’ which can be very dangerous when you’re trying not to spend!

    • Yessss houses and weddings are so so expensive! Fresh air is great for getting out of the house, plus its free 🙂 x

    These are great ideas! I am trying to save as much money as I can at the moment because there is so much I want to do but I’m a student on a budget and I’ve just managed to get some summer work luckily!

    I love to bury my head in a good book, binge watch my favourite tv series, play with my dog and – I often forget this – but you don’t need to spend lots of money to go and do something with your friends. I love to go and visit them / invite them over!

    • Yes thats so true, having pamper nights at home with friends is a good idea! x
