Frugal Things To Do That Are More Productive Than Watching TV

Do you get stuck in a rut some nights and feel like the only frugal thing you can do is sit in front of the TV and watch something?

I know we do that a lot of times. Yes there are books to read and knitting to be done, but after a while it gets a bit boring… and it doesn’t really feel like you’re accomplishing much.

This morning I came across a blog post on with 25 ideas for fun things to do other than watching TV. Best of all they don’t cost a thing, but instead may end up saving you some money.

Here are a couple of my favorites from the post:

  • Mend Some Clothing
  • Make Tomorrow’s Lunch
  • Clean Your Coffeemaker
  • Do a Digital Deep Clean
  • Send a Handwritten Note
  • Clean One Drawer or Closet
  • Pre-Cut Some Veggies
  • Clean and Organize Your Wallet or Purse

You can read all 25 Fun and Frugal Things To Do Besides Watch TV here.

Which one’s your favorite?

I set up a little mending basket under the side table in the living room and plan on sewing a few buttons on and fixing a hem on one of my favorite pairs of pants tonight.

How about you? Leave me a comment with your favorite fun and frugal activity.
