    Hey! I am trying to go 'no-buy' as I have too much as it is and I would rather spend once in a while on some quality stuff rather than buy a large quantity of cheap **** (or a mixture of both and be completely broke...- my current situation)

    What are some ideas of semi-cheap things to do when not shopping?
    Thanks!

    Can you buy coffee? Go out for coffee that's what I usually do with my friends.

    Invite people over for drinks and sit in the garden, go to an exhibition or a film perhaps.

    Go for a walk. Read lots of books. Have a film fest. Sort through all the clothes you own. Bake a cake.

    Those are all cheap/free.

    Get your bike out

    No seriously, cycling is so much fun, especially with friends. You can explore so much more than you can walking. Even if you haven't cycled in years you could easily do a good 30 miles in a day on flat roads. Especially with friends, it's awesome Take a tent or two and some food and do a roadtrip/camp fest for a few days.

    you can still spend very little money and feel like you've got new clothes - spend time customising your old ones.
