There’s not always a lot of extra time in my schedule as a new, working mom, but one thing that I try to consistently make time for is cleaning and organizing the house.
The signs are slowly starting to appear: the sun hangs around a little longer every day, the breeze is a little warmer, and the plants are looking a little greener… summer is on its way! We still have some time before it’s in full swing, so that makes now the perfect time to prepare your budget for any extra spending you might be doing in the next few months.

I remember being younger and always complaining to my mom that I had nothing to do. She always met my chorus of “I’m booorrrreedddd” with pretty unique ideas for things to do without much money, since I didn’t exactly have much of an income. Some of these things are still pretty relevant today (except now I complain to my husband instead of my mom). There are a ton of things to do without spending much, if any, money. Check out these 25 suggestions for free or nearly-free ways to entertain yourself! Some ideas are more fun than others, but all are easy on your budget.

I know, because I’d much rather be out and about on a Saturday instead of hiding in my house, especially now that warmer weather is headed our way. Here are some ideas to consider when searching for cheap entertainment.
