75 Things to Do On a No-Spend Weekend

As a homeschooling mom, I find that it’s not unusual to get a little antsy. It’s not that our schedule is so rigid, but more so that it becomes mundane. If we’ve been doing a lot of running – co-op, doctor’s visits, errands – we want to stay in. If we’ve stayed inside a bunch, then the kids and I love to get out and run around. (You know you’ve stayed home a little too much when, upon the announcement of a trip to Sam’s Club, your daughter dresses up like a day at the mall is planned.) 

Some of these 75 Things to Do On a No-Spend Weekend are geared toward families while others are geared toward individuals. Some are for staying in, others are for going out. My family is fortunate because we live in a city that offers lots and lots of options and free opportunities, but there are tons of ideas that don’t require living in a big town. I am fortunate to have a family that is just as excited about packing a lunch and spending an afternoon at the downtown library as they are about a day of miniature golf and go-carts. Every family is different. Usually being together is enough, but I’m willing to bet that a little change of pace will make some great memories and be just as exciting for your family as it is for mine!
