Picnic setup

Weekends are always the highlight of the week and people are always looking forward to them.

There are several activities you can do over the weekend that will give an exhilarating experience and your pockets will not suffer!

Movies and series are a good way to relax and unwind after a long week. Watching movies is one of the most effective methods for relieving stress.


It is sometimes tricky watching a movie over a weekday due to exhaustion and lacking the time to do so.

Some series are so interesting and they can easily tempt you to watch during work hours and you will not enjoy as much as you will always be looking over your shoulder to make sure your supervisor doesn't see you.

These games are affordable and can easily be found in supermarkets or your local bookshop. Some games include poker, jigsaw puzzles, monopoly, and charades among others.


A potluck refers to an event at which each visitor brings a dish to share. Bring Your Own Bottle (BYOB) is the occasion where everyone is assigned a drink to bring to the event.

Such parties are cost-effective and everyone is able to enjoy the diverse drinks and meals present.

You could plan a picnic at your neighboring garden or park or even in your backyard if you have the space to and enjoy it with your loved ones.

Picnics are affordable since they need little expenditure and may be enjoyed in public settings. This means you won't have to worry about your bank account while you're unwinding.


This could be cycling around your neighborhood, swimming, doing a home workout or even attending a salsa or Zumba class. These are affordable activities that help you break a sweat, lose some calories and enjoy while at it.

You can never have enough recipes. The weekends are a good time to try a new recipe. YouTube has so many recipes and most are simple with ingredients you can find near you. You will be surprised at how good it will turn out.

Give it a shot over the weekend. Your loved ones will enjoy it. This could even turn out to be a romantic dinner with your partner if you plan it well.


Decluttering your life can seem like a huge task—one that will take more than one weekend to complete. But this is an activity that will make you feel better emotionally.

Get rid of items you no longer use, clothes that no longer fit or you do not wear anymore, and broken items that you have been promising to make.

Basically, dispose of items that are creating your space. You could donate them or sell them if they are still in good condition.

Visit a children’s home or the elderly. You can now use the opportunity to visit a children’s home and donate the items you had cluttered.


This is a humane gesture that will leave you a sense of satisfaction and it will be time well spent.

I believe you now have many ideas of how you can enjoy your weekend with the little you have.
