105 Fun Things To Do With No Money [Updated For 2022]

Many think that you have to spend money to have fun. That’s just something many people think. I believe that having fun doesn’t have to cost any money. I am living proof that you can have fun without spending money. Why? I do it with my friends and family all the time!

Nowadays, there are free activities available everywhere. The most important thing is a mindset shift away from spending money and into creativity.

Make A Bucket List

A bucket list should be the number 1 thing that you do. Think about what you want to do in your life.

Head To The Library

Libraries are incredible sources of fun and free things. You can find (e)books, music, videos, games, and they may also host some events.

Check Your Local Community Calendar

This is a great source of free activities in your town or city. Every city will have some kind of free activity throughout the year. Check the website of your town for free activities.

Listen To A Podcast

Podcasts are a great way to learn about a topic in a fun and engaging way for free. I personally love and devour them.

Explore Like A Tourist

When you are traveling, the way we explore is very different. Grab a tourist guide or check online for any no-money activities available.


Find something that you get excited about and approach your local organization for some volunteering.

Play Board Games

Playing board games is something that I enjoy a lot. We have a lot of them, mostly received as gifts.

Bring Your Own Food Party

When you want to have a frugal night with friends, tell them to come over for the night. The only thing is that they can only bring snacks, drinks, and games from their house.

Meet Your Neighbors

Introduce yourself to your neighbors if you don’t know them very well. Invite them over for a cup of coffee and connect with them. If you gave up caffeine, decaf or tea would do.

Take Photos

Unleash your creative self and take your camera or phone to take pictures. Take pictures of anything and everything that you think is interesting. Plus, take lots of them.
