17 Ways To Enjoy Fall When You’re Broke AF

By  | 


Ladies, where are my fellow fall lovers at? I think I can speak for most of us when I say we twentysomething-year-olds like to hit fall — hard. We commit to celebrating our favorite season in a myriad of ways. Our love for autumn can be reflected in what we wear, what we eat, what we drink (you know what I'm talking about, here) and more… We just get fall and fall gets us. The only bad part? Food, drinks, outfits and fall activities all cost money.
So what do you do when you find yourself headed into your very favorite time of year with an incredibly limited budget? Answer: You get creative. There are a ton of ways to celebrate the coolest season without spending a ton of cash. It shouldn't take you long to discover all the best parts of celebrating fall are actually free. (Go figure, right?)

1. Go to a pumpkin patch (but put your wallet away)


Visiting pumpkin patches can be like, the most fun. You get to wander around, seeking out the perfect pumpkin to take home and carve, sometimes there are bonus activities like corn mazes or hay rides, and there’s usually tons of delicious fall treats available. So yes, all that stuff costs money, BUT most pumpkin patches don’t cost a dime if you just show up and walk around. You can still have a fun afternoon soaking up that awesome fall atmosphere, taking some cute pics for Snapchat and Instagram, and splurging $2 for a fresh cup of hot cider (the perfect accessory for your pics).
