Cheap things to do on your day off
Posted 29 January 2006 - 09:59 AM
So what are some other cheap/free things you do on weekends to keep you entertained? (I need ideas to get us out of the house for free)!
* Walk our dog somewhere pretty/different than last time
* Go to the beach (although it costs $ to park - hmmph)
* Play on i-Do
* Watch DVD's from our collection
* Volunteer for charity
(haha made you all feel bad with that last one didn't I - I got you good)

2) come to canberra for the weekend
3) go househunting - get an idea of what you can get for your budget, or go more fun, and look at the NICE houses!

the Museam, if only for the stuffed animals
art gallery, I don't think I've ever actually made it all the way through
botanic gardens - if you pack a roll and a drink you can have a mini picnic
beach, always nice in summer
rent or borrow dvds

God it's soooo hard to go out in Sydney without spending a fifty here are there. It frustrates me to the max.
What beach do you go to? There are plenty without parking fees.
Here are some ideas I can think of:
*Hire a tin boat from Rose Bay for $50 (I know that's is spending but would be a nice treat if that's your thang?)
*Try some of the coastal walks around the Eastern Suburbs and Northern Beaches
*Catch a ferry to Manly
*Take your puppy to the dog beach at Mosman and let him/her go crazy
*Trade DVD's with your friends
*Put together your wedding album
*Join a library and get reading
*Sell your old clothes on Ebay (make money)
*Do roving dinner parties so that each of your friends has a turn at cooking
*Make up a treasure map - A piece of cardboard with all pictures and words of all the things you want in life and especially for your 'dream home' - apparantly (never can spell that word right) it makes your dreams come true
*Organise your cd collection alphabetically (getting desperate now)
*Check out Art Gallery's and museums
*DEFINITELY go to TROPFEST (it's an awesome free event)
*Read the SMH on a Saturday - there are always things to do for free in there
*Spring clean your home (again)
*Discover Sydney by car. (The other day Shane and I went all the way out to Little Bay and checked out the tiny little beaches and lookouts. We even checked out Long Bay Gaol. Such Fun!)
*I love day trips down the coast and up the coast.
That's all from me.
Some of these are a little crazy but it's an effort!
Good Luck with the Volunteer Work.

that's a great idea
(free accomodation at the Cameron house mehopes)
And you're a sucker for punishment - telling me to look at houses I can't afford
I hate it when you're looking at houses in your price bracket on realestate.com. and they advertise random million dollar homes at the top of the page

that's a great idea - I was thinking we should start a DVD club here too (swap DVD's each month etc)...

not that I'd expect to catch anything edible size - but I do love fishing in a tinny.
I forgot to say also that we swim bondi or dee why beach (where we pay $ for parking)
we should go back to maroubra though it is free over there.

* Cook up savouries etc and then freeze to eat during the work so you don't have to cook after work.
* Go for a swim at the local public pool
