Easter holidays are mostly spent with hanging out with family and friends in cool expensive places. It’s the perfect excuse to splurge. But then comes a time when your wallet isn’t as friendly and while everyone is out there ‘making it rain’ you find yourself at home broke and ‘plotless’.

No need to sulk, here are eight great things you can do on Easter when you’re broke.

1. Visit family

It’s always a fun time around family during holiday season. While you might not have enough money to buy gifts and carry your own homemade dish for sharing, family won’t shun away a good spot for simply coming over.

2. Binge watch television

This is the perfect time to binge watch all six seasons of Game of Thrones in preparation of the soon to premier Season 7. It’s rare that you’ll have a whooping four days to yourself ever again this year. Furthermore, alone time is great for relaxing and recap.

3. Or… read it out instead

Grab your latest novel and get lost in your own fairytale.

4. Try out new recipes

It doesn’t have to be expensive. You can make do with what you have and come up with a new way of frying rice or learn how to make a new dish. Explore the possibilities, your taste buds will thank you.

5. When is the last time you took a stroll?

You’d be surprised at just how much you’ve been missing out on with the busy schedule that is work. Take a walk around your vicinity, catch up with old friends and you won’t notice the weekend coming to an end.
