    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!

    Great place to see sunset at west coast.
    You are from South Carolina - how can you stand to see sunrise at ocean in the morning?

    I am not joke - I know my town and next town.
    Some places do not allow to feeding ducks & geese. At Moorestown, NJ - they do not allow to feed ducking because poop pollution & lazy to look for food & lazy to fly away.


    How much cost to drive to mountain? Not under $10
    Is safe place to car parking at mountain. Some people break in your car

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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

    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. :)
