5 Frugal Fall Activities

It looks like it's going to be a chilly weekend here in Birmingham and the snuggly weather ahead has got me dreaming of cozy evenings at home and sunny days enjoying all the beauty that fall has to offer. There's no shortage of great restaurants, shops, and events happening this time of year, but take it easy on the ole' wallet and try out some of these fun frugal activities too. These are a few fun and frugal things Max and I will be enjoying this fall! 
Picnic in the park :: grab a picnic blanket, a sweater, and a bottle of wine for a fun and frugal evening out. Railroad park is always full of life and has some great people watching. Grab a Zyp bike or sign up for Date Night on Bikes for a picnic and bike rental for only $30. I mean, doesn't that picnic just make you want to pack-up and go!?

Go for a walk or take a drive:: with the cooler temperatures and beautiful fall colors, it's a great time to unplug and get outside for some fresh air and quality time. Take a walk through a new neighborhood or take a drive through the mountains to enjoy the beautiful colors of fall. Max and I love this time together to chat and catch up. Check out AL.com for a Guide to See the State's Best Autumn Colors and Alabama Tourism website for a Fall Color Trail.
Try a new recipe :: instead of a pricey dinner out, try out a new recipe and spend the evening learning how to cook it, together. Max and I love food and cooking together, and figuring out a new recipe makes it even more fun! Fall has me dreaming of warm soups and heartier recipes. I'm always pinning new recipe and things to try here.
Take on a home project :: i'm always in favor of a little fall refresh. Plant a fall garden, refinish an old piece of furniture, organize your closets, or rearrange your furniture for a quick and easy update that will re-energize you and your space for the change of season. You can find some fall interior inspiration here and here.

Tailgate at home :: we love watching Alabama football from the comfort of our couch, and with our friends JT and Rainie living a few doors down, we've been getting together for gameday tailgating at home! Whip up some of your favorite tailgate appetizers, grab a case of beer, and enjoy the game (sweat pants encouraged). Roll Tide!
