Saturdays are important because this is the only day that you get to unplug from the long work week. It is on Saturday when you get to break your regular routines, and you run the day the way that you want.
However, here is the thing- if your Saturdays are not well planned in advance, they could change from being very enjoyable into something disappointing or boring.
So you need ideas, and once you have a few, you can start spreading them around the upcoming Saturdays. The key point is that you have to plan in advance on what you will do every Saturday – do this before Saturday arrives!
This way, you will not end up wasting time doing random things like spending money on spontaneous shopping because you got bored.

Find ways to improve your finances.
For instance, you could look into doing some simple tasks you while getting paid to do them! Here are some examples of how you can make some extra income during your free time.
Clean out your purse.
It’s crazy how much stuff can accumulate in our purses! Before you start each week, clean up all the mess in your purse. Get things in order.
Start removing all your old receipts, find a home for all the jingling loose change (hint,) this is a great time to add to your piggy bank!
Do whatever you need to do in order to make your purse sparkling clean and ready for the week ahead!
Declutter one room for an hour every Saturday.
There is always clutter somewhere, and the best way to avoid it from piling up is doing a bit at a time. Little can go a long way! Start with the room that you use the most. Is it your bedroom? Start with your clothes and shoes.
Take a look at what you don’t wear anymore and sell them to Thredup, eBay or you could even donate them. Or maybe it’s time to tidy up the living room?
Where you might still have old DVDs (or even VHS!), you no longer need or can use. In fact, some of your old unwanted DVDs can be turned into money instantly.
With websites like MusicMagpie (UK) or Declutrr, you can sell your items instead of recycling. All you need to do is create a list and ship for free. Next, all you have to do is wait for the check to come in!
So the key point is decluttering one room at a time, for one hour every Saturday.

Take a challenge.
Choose one activity that challenges you a little bit. It also should be an idea that at one point in your life, you’ve told yourself, “hmmm one day I would love to try and do that,” that one – go for that!
