Having a hobby can be very expensive. The costs can rise over four digits per month easily in certain sports. The costs are coming from rent, interval of practices and training costs. For example, ice-hockey, horse riding and figure skating are very expensive. I have two kids and am just hoping that their hobby selection would be from the cheap end 🙂
Off course you can watch TV all day long or play free games with your tablet or mobile phone, but at least for me these are not “free hobbies” even though those might be free. It would be beneficial for you if you would skip the TV today and you would go outside for having some fun and sweat 🙂
So, what could be a hobby which does not cost much? Here are my findings:
You can borrow a book from the library for free. Nowadays you can also use google play store or other similar provider which offers some books for free.
Learning a Language
You can borrow a book from the library or use internet based cheap learning programs, like duolingo, memrise or hellotalk.
Body Weight Fitness
Just go outside, you can go running, cycling or do muscle exercises to which you use your own body weight.
Every has a pen and paper?
Writing / Blogging
You can start a blog at no cost at all. You can use free platform providers like blogspot or wordpress. If you want to have own website, prices start at 4-5 €/$ per month. Cheapest host is BlueHost.
Making your own food is much cheaper than eating in restaurants. You can also prepare next day lunch, so you can skip the canteen lunch.
This needs a little bit skills but you can learn programming skills almost at no cost. You can also turn this to profit by making your own apps and programs.
Have fun with your new hobbies,
