7 Ways to Fun for Free or Almost for Free

Many of us have changed our daily routine this year. We began to spend much less money on entertainments or other activities and look for ways to save some pennies. It is reasonable because the economy is not stable today. But being at home most of the time can be boring and even sometimes depressing. So that you do not turn into a hermit, we have created a list of tips to help you satisfy your social needs without leaving your own house/apartment. These picks are useful not only during the lockdown or when you don’t have the money to attend cultural events. Our picks will help you have fun when the bad weather or you do not want to leave your home for any other reason.

  1. Organise a themed night with Netflix

Netflix does not let you get bored if you do not have the opportunity to visit cinemas, theatres or theme parties. Thanks to Netflix, each of us can have an interesting time alone with yourselves or with a girlfriend/boyfriend. A themed Netflix night is a great solution to remember a carefree childhood and return to the 80s or 90s. For deeper immersion, you can wear theme outfits that will help you feel like your favourite characters from movies or series.

  1. Online tutorials for free or virtual class

You don’t have to go to school, university, or other educational institution to learn something new. It is enough to sit comfortably on the couch in front of a laptop and choose the appropriate virtual class/ tutorials online to gain new knowledge. The acquisition of new skills in this way does not require large financial investments, and sometimes it is 100% free. You just need to choose the online class/manual/ tutorials. In addition to being an exciting plus rewarding pastime for you, first of all, it is an investment in your future.

Invite your friends, make a lot of tea or open a bottle of something stronger if you want and relax. By the way, Netflix can be a good background for your friendly conversation.

  1. Purge your wardrobe

Now is the right time to purge your wardrobe. Remove all things from your wardrobe that don’t make you happy. First, you clear a lot of space, and second, it gives you positive emotions. If your friends do such purge of their closets at the same time as you, maybe you can even make a mutually beneficial exchange with them.

  1. Learn to cook new dishes

During the pandemic, many of us have become addicted to take-out or food home delivery from our favourite restaurants (if these establishments have such a service). You will always have time to return to such methods, or soon, if COVID-19 is defeated, you again will be able to visit restaurants. Now is the right time to learn how to cook something new or try to cook the dishes that your mom so deliciously cooked during your childhood.

  1. Enjoy a dance party at home

To have a dance party at home, you do not need to prepare for a long time. There is no need to prepare a dress, do a glamorous hairstyle and make-up because no one will see you and will not be able to appreciate your appearance during the fun. You can listen to music and make rhythmic movements while cleaning the house or any other time convenient for you. The main thing is not to disturb your neighbours’ peace of mind during such a dance party.
