Alright, a little late to the bandwagon here… but in my defense, the leaves are just starting to show signs that fall is officially here in Virginia. I love being surrounded by all the gorgeous shades of amber, maroon, and gold (coffee in hand, of course). Simply put— I am for sure feeling all the fall vibes. Sweater weather is here to stay and I am 100% on board with it!
Staying true to the “Type-A” person that I am, of course I made a list of things I want to do this fall. I don’t know about all of you, but this time of year I am on a bit of a tighter budget. Between saving up for holiday travel and early Christmas shopping, this girl is pinching her pennies. As much as I want to do all the things, being responsible with my money while also partaking in fall festivities is super important to me & I definitely can’t be the only one! So, I came up with some budget-friendly things to do this fall that won’t completely break the bank.
Eeekk— I can’t wait to have so many adventures and share them with you all! Hopefully this gives y’all a little inspiration to have a few of your own too!
Let’s start with the basics…
Visit a farmers’ market. Throw a bonfire (& roast marshmallows) .
Volunteer to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters.
Go to a pumpkin patch…& pick the prettiest one.
Carve said pumpkin.
Pick apples at an orchard.
Bake a pie (bonus points for apple or pumpkin)… what else do you do with a boat load of fresh apples?!
Go to a football game — I’m sure my boyfriend will find a way to make me cheer on the Panthers if it’s the last thing he does (come on CAM).
Go on a hay ride.
Go to a fall festival/fair.
Go hiking in the mountains to see the leaves change.
Road trip — I’ve had my sights set on Asheville, NC for a while now!
Attempt my first corn maze — I’ve been terrified to do this ever since I saw the movie “Lovely Bones” TBH.
Watch the classics — You know what I mean, Hocus Pocus, Halloween Town… bring on the nostalgia!
Jump in a leaf pile (you’re never too old for this).
Learn a new comfort food recipe…lookin’ at you, Mom!
Pack a picnic.
Go camping under the stars.
Cook for a food pantry.
Go to a drive in movie.
Enter a half marathon — this could be a huge fail, but points for trying right?
Fly a kite.
Send a care packages to veterans.
Make a gratitude list — I’ve been trying to get back into journaling every day like I used to, too!
