20 Cheap, Fun Things To Do When You Get Bored

Some say "the sky is the limit", others say "I don't have enough money"

1304

We all get bored from time to time and want to do anything that gives us a thrill. For those who do not want to spend much money and those who cannot, this list ranges from $0 to roughly $200 or however much you are willing to spend. End your boredom, have some fun!

Geocache

Giphy

It's like a scavenger hunt except you take what's in the box and you leave something for someone else. I have been geocaching a couple times and have yet to strike gold but otherwise it is a fun activity!

Bonfire

Giphy

Bonfires are perfect for cool weather and catching up with your friends. Not to mention roasting marshmallows for s'mores.

Try a new recipe

Giphy

You could make something that you've never eaten before or put a twist on one of your favorite recipes! Or you could even try to make a dish from Top Chef that looked appealing. Whatever the case, you'll have fun and be full.

Go downtown

Giphy

Do something downtown that you haven't done before. Act like a tourist and see what new things you can find. You can take cool pictures, watch people perform, try new food or activities, discover new attractions, and maybe even take a segway tour.

Go to the Farmer's Market

Giphy

My parents would take me to the Farmer's Market "just to look" because that's what they did as kids. Usually we wouldn't find anything but sometimes we would. But if you don't go for the goods, you should definitely people watch, you never know what you might see.

Thrift Shopping

Giphy

Thrift shops bare many treasures, and many weird objects. All at a low price!

Garage Sales

Giphy

Another cheap way to get cool things.

Fishing

Giphy

Like tanning and having a picnic, it's just another activity by the water! You can hang out with your friends and relax.

Camping

Giphy

Grab some friends and rock out on some camp grounds! Or the backyard.

Stargaze

Giphy

Looking for constellations in the night sky is a great way to spend your time.

Rock Climbing

Giphy

You can climb anything from a rock wall to a mountain.

Hiking

Giphy

Whatever you want to walk, hike it. You can get some pretty cool views and explore the area, you never know what you'll see!

Skydiving

Giphy

Skydiving is a thrill and it is relatively cheap. This will definitely keep your adrenaline up.

Clean your room or closet

Giphy

Deep clean your bedroom to make space for more stuff and maybe find something you were looking for a long time ago.

Go Bowling

Giphy

When was the last time you went bowling? Go bowling to see how good you are now.

Road Trip

Giphy

Carpool karaoke on a Sunday drive sounds perfect.

Create a workout schedule

Giphy

Make yourself a workout schedule and get to exercising!

Meditate

Giphy

There are many forms of meditating. You can cleanse your mind by listening to music or podcasts or doing something you enjoy.

Make your online wish list.

Giphy

Put everything you want in your cart, just for fun- or to see who will gift one of those items to you.

Plan Your Dream Vacation

Giphy

Decide where you want to go the most and plan everything you want to see, plan out your vacation and how you will save for it.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
