There’s something so romantic about autumn, isn’t there? It’s not just the season of pumpkin spice after all. Between the crispness of the air, the fall foliage, and that first snuggle session in front of a roaring fire, there’s nothing that spells romance better than this season.
Don’t wait for winter to come along and take it all away—get outside with your significant other and enjoy it. Need some inspiration? Read on for six picture perfect fall date ideas that don’t break the bank. And, yes, pumpkin spice lattes are a perfectly acceptable accompaniment.
My hubby and I love to have board game nights with our friends. We’re currently on a three year spending ban while we pay off our massive student loan debt, so finding free things to do for fun is important for our sanity.
In addition to being free, game nights are so much fun. Honestly, I have a much better time staying in and playing games with friends than I would if I went out and spent a bunch of money. Here are my top ten favorite games for a board game night.
Since my hubby and I are currently on a three year spending ban while we pay off $117,000 of student loan debt, we don’t generally travel. However, we went to Arizona last year because my step grandpa passed away and we were there for his funeral.

So, you’re traveling and you’re looking for an exciting but affordable New Orleans tour. You’re in New Orleans for a few days or even longer and want to explore. The Big Easy never has a shortage of good times. But how can you find things to do in New Orleans and stay on a budget?

Food, housing, transportation and other basic needs comprise the nuts and bolts of most budgets, as well as clothing, which represents another perennial spending category. Fortunately, although you can’t do without clothes, keeping covered need not break the bank. There are indeed ways to save money on clothes, without sacrificing your personal style.
Winter may seem like a good time to hibernate inside and binge watch Netflix (especially if you’re trying not to spend money), but there actually are a ton of fun things that can be done for free during the snowy winter months. Staying active and spending some time outside (if it’s not -20 degrees out) are great ways to help beat the winter blues!
I love giving gifts and finding the “perfect” gift for someone. As a frugal person, I like to get the most bang for my buck. I don’t like to buy someone a gift that they won’t like or won’t use. Many stocking stuffers are totally impractical – no one really needs a stocking full of gum, candy, and knickknacks. I hate wasting money on useless items. If you’re going to have stockings, why not spend your money on practical gifts that will actually be used? Here are some awesome, practical stocking stuffers for ladies, guys, organizing queens/neat freaks, and tech addicts.
