#SummerToRemember Post #1 – How To Make The Most Out Of Your Summer

UPDATE: To check out all the posts in my summer series, click here!

Alrightyyy, so as mentioned in my last post, binge watching shows on Netflix is great, don’t get me wrong, but is that really making the most of your precious time off from school? I think you know where that answer is going… So without further ado, here are my ideas!

ANNOUNCEMENT: Guess what? I got asked to do a guest post over on freckledfashionista.wordpress.com by an amazing fellow teen blogger named Abigail, and I was so excited to write a post for her! The post is How To Take Perfect Instagram Photos, so feel free to go, read that post, and show her some love!

21 Free Or Really Inexpensive Things To Do This Summer:

  • Camp Out in Your Backyard and Sleep Under the Stars (P.S. You won’t be getting advice on how to set up a tent from me, LOL)
  • DIY Marble…Everything! (Check out my Pinterest DIY Inspiration Board for Inspo)
  • Have a Campfire and Roast Marshmallows (Or Smores if that floats your boat)
  • Go for A Hike (And taking amazing pictures, obviously)
  • Play MASH (Yes, this is sooo elementary but somehow never gets old)
  • Have an At-Home Manicure or Pedicure Day (You could try some new techniques)
  • Jump on The Trampoline (and get it wet with the sprinkler for even more fun)
  • Have a Board Game Night with Friends (You can’t go wrong with board games, right?)
  • Have A Sparkler Photoshoot with Friends (I’ve been meaning to do this forever)
  • Go to Your Local Cafe and Drink Fancy Lattes (Or iced latte’s if you are fortunate enough to live in a hot place)
  • Teach Yourself How to Play an Instrument Through YouTube (I just learned the Ukulele through YouTube!)
  • Start a blog! (It’s a great hobby, let me tell you 😉
  • Go Glow-In-The-Dark Bowling (This is always tons of fun)
  • Go to a Berry-Picking Farm (Mmm…berries)
  • Attend Local Markets/Festivals
  • Scavenge Through Your Local Bookstore (Maybe you’ll find the perfect summer read!)
  • Build a Fort and Add Fairy Lights (and channel your inner child 😉
  • Have an At-Home Spa Day (Make it a relax-only day with face masks, lotion, and a bath)
  • Go to a Nearby Beach or Lake (I LOVE Wake-boarding and Knee-boarding with a passion)
  • Go Thrift Shopping (Cheap clothes? Yes please!)
  • Bake Some Goods (My favorite quick recipe to satisfy my chocolate obsession is a chocolate mug cake, you can my go-to recipe here)

And there you have it, girl! I really hoped this list gave you some ideas of things you can do this summer for free or for really cheap! In the poll from my last post, someone specifically requested free things to do this summer, and I just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to help her out 🙂 Till next time,

    Awesome post! I adore summer (mainly because there’s no school and I can swim all the time) and can’t wait to give some of these a try. I’d really hate to waste my summer on the couch.
