5 Easy Ways to Have the Best Weekend

We've been having some of the BEST weekends lately....that I never want to forget. I'm learning ways to enjoy them more and celebrate with ways that aren't too hard on the bank account.

Here's how...
1. Laundry throughout the week-
I hate being a slave to the washer and dryer on the weekend so I try to start on Thursday after work with one or two loads, maybe another Friday night and finish it up on Sunday after the fun is done. Throwing in a load here and there sure helps to not be doing everything on the precious weekend. It helps that our teenager does his own, even if we do have to remind him a handful of times.

2. Grocery shop (or some other chore) on a random weeknight instead of the weekend-
I'm no fan of grocery shopping, in fact...I hate it. Chuck is much better at it and doesn't seem to mind it (at least he doesn't complain about it to me). So when I do grocery shop it's either on a Monday or Tuesday after work. Life has been much easier with the ability to do it online, a lifesaver that only costs $5 to do it all on the computer and schedule a pick-up. Thank you Giant Eagle!
If you enjoy grocery shopping, high five to you...instead pick a different chore to do on a random weeknight.

3. Enjoy one meal out-, whether it's breakfast lunch or dinner...or even dessert-
Sometimes the weekends are so busy that we can't help but have a meal outside the home. Sometimes it's a late Saturday brunch or a Sunday lunch and sometimes I'm just craving dessert. Try somewhere new, venture outside of chain restaurants, spend time outside while you eat...all so fun.

4. Take a drive-
I LOVE to go for rides...and sometimes we do just that. A ride to nowhere, or to watch the sunset. It's a great way to escape and it's free (except for gas of course). Blast some music, take some snacks and just drive and enjoy the company of your friend or the moments alone.

5. Write down 1 or 2 things you really want to do-
What are your plans for the weekend? If you don't have any, sometimes it can fly by way too quick and you're left thinking...what did I even do?! Take time mid-week to find something new to do, or something you really have been wanting to do again. Write it down and make that your priority for the weekend. YOU DESERVE IT!

What are some of your favorite ways to enjoy the weekend? Share with me, I'd love to add to my list!
