7 Ways to Have Fun for Free

March 25, 2015 — by Griffin Thall


No matter what day of the week it is, we’re always dreaming of the weekend. Can’t figure out what to do? Save some cash and invest a little time and creativity into these 7 ways to have a great time without spending a dime:

1. Plan Your Dream Trip Online
Any true wanderluster has an on-going list of ‘Places To Go’. Get cozy with your laptop and a giant cup of coffee then pick out hotels, ideal flight times and sights you can’t miss. Your research will come in handy when that magical day comes to make your dream trip become a reality.

2. Write Out Your Bucketlist
We only get one life to do everything we could ever dream of and it’s never too late to start making those dreams come true. The sky’s the limit when it comes to your bucketlist so think BIG. Then post it up somewhere you can look at it every day to keep you focused on the big picture.

3. Have a Photoshoot
Try out new make-up techniques, hair styles and cute outfits with your BFF, then grab your camera and have a photoshoot! Don’t forget to accessorize with Pura Vida Bracelets 🙂 Share the pics or keep them as a reminder of how fun it is to play dress up.

4. Set a Goal. And Make it Happen.
Clean out your closet. Start a fashion blog. Become an artist. Think about something you’ve always wanted to accomplish and write it down. Then set a reasonable timeline and list the steps it will take to make that goal happen. Day by day, work towards crossing off everything from that list and before you know it, you’ll be there!


5. Watch the Sunset
Sunsets are beautiful and no two are the same. They allow us to be present and cherish the moment. Time seems to just slow down as the sun lowers and the skies light up in a spectrum of color – and they’re FREE.

6. Make a Time Capsule
Gather up little trinkets and small symbols that remind of your fondest memories. Put them into a jar and bury it some place special then promise to dig it up in the future. Just don’t forget where you put it!

7. Create Something Original
Draw a picture, try a new recipe, learn to knit, write a poem – just make something. When we make something original, we are embracing our uniqueness and feel happy. Check out some of our DIY tutorials for some inspiration!
