You know how much cost of gas to drive there and return home. If car broke down cost me skyrocket.

Our local - movie ticket $9 unless I have date then double $
Pick good kite - cost me over $20
Picnic - cost of food plus drive to park
Go fishing - require fishing permit licence
Metal Detecting - to buy metal detector
Not understand - go to lake for $2. Our local lake are free but cost of gas for drive to there.
Free Concerts ?? - No way to sneak into building. They have many security.
State park $2 ?? - most are free park but cost of gas to drive

Those are great ideas!

Cuddling up together is free.

For couples, a warm bubble bath together is a way to start the night.

Take pictures of each other with goofy faces to make it fun, You could do that with friends too. It's free and worth the memories.

free arts and crafts days at local libraries too.
free use of computer online at libraries
people watching at mall (my kids love this one)
attend junior high basket ball games free or very cheap
volunteer to be in local parades (fun!) several years ago
the library theme and float was "Don't Bug Me I'm Reading" So the
librarians asked my kids, ages 4 and 6 to dress up as lady bugs and
they got the thrill of riding in the parade all in costume. fun and free
and lots and lots of memories!

Another way to make a free kite is using free local newspapers, and sticks from tree and a very long string. Just make your own kite.

Here's my views of things to do

walk in the city park and do nature photography=few bucks depending on driving distance

ride bus around town and go store browsing=less than $5

fly a kite on a windy day=depends on what kind of kite you can afford to spend on

drive a RC car on a parking lot or in a city park=if you already have one, it doesn't cost much...if you don't, you're screwed!

Hang out with friends=a few bucks, depending on what activity

Watch people in a busy downtown area=a few bucks depending what transportation mode you use.

Go to the movies=no more than $10 at most theathers plus transportation expenses (except those deaf people are screwed due to no captioning at any time)

Make videos of trains in a busy area=a few bucks, for sure....only if you're a railfan!

Fly a kite - It is not free - you need to buy something to make kite then fail to fly. Still no fun with fail.

Just be creative with things, people make their own kite to make it free like SG pointed out below.


still problem: many deaf people live in city or suburb - not great to see stars - best way go far away from suburb - still cost of gas.

There's always a place to view of stars everywhere, the only thing that blocks our view is the clouds

More sleep - too many hours make you sick. Or, I think you are lack of motivation or depressed
Physical Side Effects of Oversleeping

Please don't assume that I have lack of motivation or depression. I work a lot hours and also graveyard shift in the past.


Still cost of drive to beach, Hard to find car parking durung summer season. If, your car parking at wrong place - they may tow your car away or big fine

My cousin did call someone to tow cars away from their property. Watch out nasty homeowner.


There's beach houses and people walk on beach for free, and there is public parking nearby. I live about an hour from the beach, and it's not that bad here.


Softball free? Do you know how much cost to buy bat, ball and glove.
3 or 4 players are no fun. Need more players.
If, you play at backyard. Be careful with homeowner's window or glass.



No computer/internet = Priceless!!!!



Surfing: free? Can you give away free surf board? I wannna one

take the bus to the nearest park and go for a walk.

Spring clean your place and donate useless things that have been lying around

Go to the mall with friends and sample on free make-up to get a make-over

If u live in Phx, crack an egg and watch it cook on the sidewalk. That was always fun to do as a kid.

look for free or low cost classes being offered at home improvement stores, bookstores, arts/crafts stores, library, and local college..take the classes and learn something new!

Go to outdoor festivals if one is being hosted nearby.

The sun rises in the east and sets in the west. One can see the sunrise on the ocean from the eastern coast of South Carolina. One can also see the sunrise and sunset on the ocean from a coastal island. One can also see SC sunrise and sunset on the waters of lakes and marshes.

Why not? It is good exercise which many of us, adults, are probably in desperate need of, anyway.

Only one problem with the old fashioned games. It takes more than one person to play. Motivating others can be a challenge. :-)

This November my hubby and I have been playing "Old fashioned" games for 25 years. Still not hard to motivate.
However having had 7 children this activity was definately not free because payment is much later! .

If there is a hospital near window shopping, they usually have complimentary (free) coffee in cafeteria. Our hospital also has a very large chillie and nacho cheese dish for $2.00!
When I need to get out by myself for the day this is a cheap thrill!
