Cheap Things to Do in Autumn / Fall

I’ve previously written a post on FREE things to do in Autumn / Fall but here’s my list of cheap activities to keep you active as it grows colder. Autumn is a great time to get stuff done around the house and outside. Don’t start your autumn without reading these ideas.

  1. Have a ‘staycation’ in your city / town. Use booking.com, pop in your postcode and stay somewhere local for the night as the leaves turn.
  2. Similarly, go glamping. Often it becomes cheaper towards the end of the year and I can promise the huts and yurts are just as warm.
  3. Go antiquing at your local charity shops and car-boot sales to winterise your home or to buy cheap summer things out of season
  4. Throw a Halloween party (blog coming next week on how to do for cheap!)
  5. Attend a farmers market and grab some in season fruit and vegetables. Check out my seasonality table post here for what’s in season (they’re the freshest and cheapest).
  6. Make a scarecrow in the garden with young family members.
  7. Take a road trip through the autumn countryside. Don’t forget to stop and enjoy a warm picnic.
  8. Run a 5K. If you’re into sports then autumn is a great time as during summer it often feels too hot and sweaty to endurance run.
  9. Or if outdoor excercise isn’t your bag, join a new class at the gym to keep the winter pounds from piling on
  10. Go to a drive through or outdoor cinema experience
  11. Visit a haunted house
  12. Start a wine and book club with friends
  13. And don’t forget to create your own Halloween costume. 
  14. Host Bonfire night!
  15. Start Christmas shopping to stay ahead of the busy high streets

  1. We love farmers markets! Unfortunately in south Florida we don’t have a change of leaves and it’s still extremely hot which makes it a bit of a challenge for us for some of the other ideas lol.
