International Frugal Fun Day

When : First Saturday in October

Frugal Fun Day is today. If you dig deeply, you will find resources that describe this day as "International" Frugal Fun Day, and "National" Frugal Fun Day. However, we found no documentation supporting the International or National tags. We did find plenty of reference to the intent of this day.... to have fun "on the cheap".

Frugal Fun Day is a day to enjoy fun activities that are free (or very inexpensive). If you use your imagination, the ideas are endless. Go on a bike or walking hike. The Fall leaves are on display. Have a picnic in the park, or your back yard. Invite some friends or neighbors over for a garage party and dance. Go fly a kite. Pull out the those old board games or puzzles that you have stored in the basement. Play cards with some friends.

Here's wishing you a very Happy Frugal Fun Day.

Origin of Frugal Fun Day:
This special day was created by Shel Horowitz, author of The Penny-Pinching Hedonist: How to Live Like Royalty with a Peasant's Pocketbook. We strongly suspect Frugal Fun Day was created, in part, to promote the book. Regardless of the reason for creating this day, we see nothing wrong with having a little inexpensive fun.

    We're actually doing some frugal fun today, our local JC has a farm and they open it up today with tons of free activities. Thanks for reminding me.

    Cheap! Sounds like fun already! emoticon
    Today's fitness was fun for me. On to a cheap movie later with the family...

    great idea to have fun at little or no cost. We should not need a special day for that. We could incorporate it into our every day lives. Spending time with family and friends is truly a blessing. Have a great day. emoticon
