Fun Activities to Do With Your Friends Without Spending Much

Making friends can be hard. Making friends who want to do things without spending too much money is even harder. Trust me, I know because every time my girls and I go out, it's always sushi and caviar. To make things crazier, they can never settle on regular champagne; it had to be Patrón.

I'm not the over-the-top type of person; Netflix and diet coke are the highlight of a fantastic night. I understand the need to impress and to ensure your friends have a great time. The only issue is going too far might bring your bank account to an early grave.

Not to worry, I know how to keep your piggy bank safe. Here are some exciting activities that will have your friends begging for more.


You can do several things in a park with your friends without spending a lot of money. One option is to have a picnic lunch or dinner and bring food from home. Another option is to play some games such as frisbee or volleyball. You could also take a walk or hike together and enjoy the scenery. You could even lay out a blanket and stargaze together if the weather is nice. 

Whatever you choose to do, make sure it is something that everyone will enjoy so that you can all have a great time together.

Evening Party

You can do several things on a budget at an evening party with your friends. One option is to have a potluck dinner party where each person brings a dish to share. This is a great way to try new recipes and save on costs.

Another option is to have a movie night at someone's house and make popcorn and snacks to enjoy during the film. You could also play some games such as charades, poker, or Monopoly.  

Spa Day

Another is to purchase inexpensive spa supplies from a store and have a DIY spa day at someone's house. You could also take turns giving each other massages or facials. 

Create a Blog Together

You can enjoy creating a blog with your friends without spending a lot of money. First, use a free blogging platform such as WordPress or Blogger. Then purchase a domain name and hosting plan from a discount provider such as GoDaddy. You could also ask a friend who's familiar with web design and development to help you create your blog.

Whatever method you choose, make sure you take the time to discuss your ideas and plan out your content so that you can both enjoy the process and end up with a product you're proud of. Creating a blog can be a great way to bond with your friends while documenting your lives and sharing your thoughts.

Create a Youtube channel together

If you and your friends are looking for a creative way to spend time together, why not start a YouTube channel? You can bond while brainstorming video ideas, filming, editing, and more. Plus, it's a great way to showcase your talents and personality to the world.

You'll need to create a YouTube account and channel to get started. Once you have your channel set up, you can start uploading videos. You can film yourselves doing various activities or challenges, record tutorials or how-to videos, or have fun vlogging about your lives. Whatever type of content you create, make sure it is something that you and your friends are passionate about and will appeal to your target audience.

With a little effort and creativity, you can soon have a successful YouTube channel you and your friends can enjoy. Who knows, you may even end up becoming influencers.

Learn a New Language Together

Learning a new language with your friends can be a great way to bond and have fun. It can also be an excellent way to learn more about other cultures and improve your communication skills. There are several ways you can learn a new language with your friends, and the best method will depend on your individual needs and goals.

One option is to take a formal language class together. This can be a great way to learn the basics of a new language. Another option is to use online resources to learn at your own pace. Some websites and apps offer free or affordable lessons for various languages. You could also try watching foreign films and TV shows with subtitles or listening to music in the target language.

Whatever method you choose, make sure you set aside some time each week to practice so that you can all progress at a reasonable pace. Learning a new language can be challenging, but it's also very rewarding. You and your friends can learn a new language together with some effort and patience.

Volunteer With Your Friends

Volunteering with your friends is a great way to make new friends, have fun, and give back to the community. There are several ways you can find volunteer opportunities in your area. One option is to search online for local organizations that need volunteers. Another idea is to contact your local United Way or Red Cross chapter and inquire about opportunities. You could also check with your place of worship or your child's school to see if there are any volunteer needs.

Once you've found a few potential opportunities, take the time to talk with your friends about which one everyone would be most interested in. Once you've decided on an opportunity, ensure you follow the organization's instructions.

Wine and Book Club

If you and your friends love to read and drink wine, why not start a wine and book club? This is a great way to bond with your friends, try new wines, and discuss the books you're reading. To get started, you'll need to choose a day and time that works for everyone in the group. Then, each person must bring a bottle of wine and a book to the meeting.

At the meeting, everyone will take turns sharing the book they brought and discussing it. Then, everyone will sample the wine and give their thoughts on it. It's important to remember that there are no wrong answers in a wine and book club. The point is simply to share your thoughts and enjoy spending time with your friends.

Final Thoughts

You can do several fun activities with your friends without spending much. If you're looking for ways to bond with your conrads and have some fun, consider taking a class together, learning a new language, or volunteering in your community.
