Are you looking for a cheap way to celebrate the upcoming holiday weekend? Read the following list created by Trent Hamm of U.S. News.
- Host a Potluck Barbecue: Are you worried about the expense of hosting a barbecue? When you invite your friends and family see if they will bring a side dish to help cut the expense. Even if they don’t have time to cook something, see if they will bring plates or utensils. The multiple necessities for a barbeque can add up quick so split the bill and enjoy the celebration knowing you didn’t overspend.
- Organize Home Improvements: Do you feel like being productive on this long weekend? Maybe try organizing your home improvement list. Once it’s organized, begin checking things off. Our tips are to write everything down while walking around and through your house. Then assign a number based on how easy/hard and time consuming it is. Start with either end. The small stuff is easy for one person to knock out over the weekend. Or, you can invite your friends over and deal with a harder project. Either way, you’ll be left feeling extremely productive and will be enable to enjoy the work you did.
- Visit Your Nearest State and National Parks: With the multitude of Ohio parks as well as local city parks, you have endless possibilities to get out and enjoy nature. Try camping for the weekend or even just a small picnic.
- Catch a Local High School Sporting Event: Instead of spending a fortune on professional team games, catch a local high school’s sporting event. Right now football, soccer, and volleyball are well underway in the Tri-State and other areas.
