I love my husband but time with the girlfriends is super important. Time with them lets me unwind without worrying about cooking, cleaning, laundry, and watching a sport that I know nothing about. BUT because I love spending time with them doesn’t mean I always have the financial means to do so.  Having a girlfriend weekend doesn’t have to be expensive but it may take a little bit of planning.  All it takes is phone call, a quick list, and laughter and you’ve got the perfect night.  You can hang out, go for a bike ride, and more if you take a few minutes to shoot an email or text to your be BESTIES to see what everyone is in to.


If you are anything like me, I suggest taking turns hosting the girl’s night to make sure your friends are surprised.  If pot luck is included, tell them to bring the dish and you take care of the rest.  For those of you who hate planning, I’ve come up with a list of 70 activities that are free or almost free!!!!
