22. Go Fishing
Grab the poles, find a pond, and cast those lines!
24. Go to the Library
There are many benefits your local library has to offer besides just books. You can rent movies, page through magazines, or surf the net.
25. Host a Classic Movie Marathon
Invite friends over for a movie marathon featuring all the classics you remember from when you were growing up. Or, host a money movie marathon!

I know many parents who would love for someone to offer a chance to take a break from the busyness of life. Many single parents hardly ever get a chance to get out and unwind.
30. Clean Out Your Closet and Donate to a Thrift Store
Go through your closets and declutter. Find items you can donate to your local Goodwill or another thrift shop.

47. Write a Letter to a Family Member You Haven’t Talked to in a While
When is the last time you sat down and wrote a letter? There’s something magical and nostalgic about the written word on paper. Send a letter to someone you haven’t talked to in a while and tell them how much you love them.
Hopefully these ideas are enough to get you started on a fun, cheap, and rewarding weekend!
What cheap, fun things are you planning to do this weekend?
Case in point, a member of our staff had the opportunity to have a free day with other people courtesy of a local Casio (something a lot of Locksmitty Locksmith Pekin IL professionals don’t get to do) and they had a great time just talking to casino staff and enjoying the life of the other side. The group was a decent size and not one of them failed to thank them while sharing the day on social and I have no doubt it increased local interest significantly.
A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It’s my favorite part of the business, live concerts. ~Elvis Presley
