The pilgrimage back home for Thanksgiving Break is one of my favorite times of the year. Since, I go to school so far away from home, it’s a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and see my family! That being said, I want to have as much fun as I can this week without spending a ton of money. Check out my top 3 favorite ways to enjoy Thanksgiving break without having to spend any money!

1) Enjoy a delicious home-cooked dinner at home with Family

My fraternity house has a meal plan that enables me to enjoy lunch and dinner four nights at week at a very low cost. Unfortunately, the meal plan food is less than satisfying. One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving break is enjoying my mom’s home cooking. A family dinner always offers good laughs, plus it’ll help you rejuvenate for the upcoming finals push.

2) Attend a local event such as an High School athletic competition or Performing Arts Event

Often times these events will free or offered at very little cost to your wallet. These events will help you catch up with old friends and help you rediscover what makes home so special. Plus, there’s nothing better than watching your alma mater beat up on your local rival on the way to the state championship!

3) Give back to the community by helping out at a local food bank or soup kitchen

A lot of people say that their favorite part about Thanksgiving is the leftovers and for good reason, they are absolutely delicious! However, instead of enjoying them of Friday, why don’t you drive them over to the local food bank and drop them off to those in need? Better yet, helping out for a few hours at a soup kitchen will make you feel good and maybe help you work off some of the calories you accumulated from your Thanksgiving feast!

Since Thanksgiving is the time to give thanks, let your wallet have the opportunity to give you thanks my doing things that won’t cost you much money. What activities do you like to do when you go home that don’t cost much money?
