Frugal weekend part 2.

1. Attend a sporting event: Yes these can be costly if you do not plan ahead. However many teams offer great deals on tickets if you purchase in advance.  Also as long as your favorite team is not playing their arch rival you can often get tickets at a great price just outside the stadium. Ticket scalpers buy left over tickets for eighty percent off, sell them to you at fifty percent off and you both walk away happy.

2. Movie marathon, pick out your favorite movie, or watch an entire season of your favorite TV show. Invite a few friends over make it a big event.

3. Go snow shoeing: This is one of my favorite activities to do in the winter, its a great way to enjoy the snow and it is a great workout. If you do not have snow shoes I recommend renting some from a local sporting goods store before making the big purchase. But its something you can do time and time again, hop online and find a new hill to climb.

4. Put Luck dinner party: Dinner parties are a ton of fun, but if you host them often it can get pretty costly. Pot lucks are an awesome way to do that party for cheap, and you get to enjoy the meal rather than spend the whole night dishing food out.

5. Make a gift: Tis the season of giving, rather than spending a bunch of money on a gift for a co-worker or sibling. Spend some time thinking about something they would love and then make it. It will help foster your creativity as well as show you put a lot of thought into the gift.
