5 Fun and Surprisingly Cheap Things to Do This Fall

Cheap Things to Do This Fall

I love fall. It’s my birthmonth😊, Halloween, and the start of a new season. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg this fall to have fun. Halloween spending is expected to be almost $9 billion dollars this year.

Here are five fun and surprisingly cheap things to do this fall.   

1. Carve a pumpkin

Pumpkins at grocery stores cost less then $5 and it’s a great way to get crafty. You don’t even have to get a pumpkin carving kit. Here’s how to carve a pumpkin with just a knife. If you’re stumped on how to decorate your pumpkin here are 25 easy ideas.

2. Roast pumpkin seeds

While you’re at it carving a pumpkin, save the seeds and roast em’ for a healthy and yummy treat. Here’s a simple roasted pumpkin seeds recipe to just add salt and a little butter.

3. Go to a high school football game

This fall catch a local high school football game. Some games are free or under $10. It makes for a great night out to support your local school and community.

4. Make your own Halloween costume

USA Today estimated that men spend on average $96 on costumes and women spend $77. You can make your own costume by using items you already have around the house.  I’ve made my own costumes from being Audrey Hepburn, to Cat in the Hat. Here’s 3 Steps to Make DIY Costumes that Rock.

5. Go to a corn maze

Head a little bit outside of town and find a corn field that’s a maze, like this one. You and your friends can navigate through a corn maze typically for under $10 and have a unique outdoors experience.
