Last year around this time, I did a blog about all of the neat events in my area to celebrate one of my favorite seasons. I’ll still be doing a few of those but I’m taking a step back from doing as much this year. Running around too much gives me major burnout and everything can get so commercialized that it’s nice to just enjoy the little things. I thought I’d share some of my favorite simple things to do that are cheap (or FREE) to celebrate the season. 🍂🎃❤️☕🥧✨
Light a fall scented candle.
Take a walk and admire the changing leaves.
Pick out a pumpkin. (The little ones pictured I got from Trader Joe’s and our large pumpkins were on sale from Lowes. 😛)
Have a cup of hot coffee/hot apple cider outside.
Wear boots or a scarf.
Go to a pumpkin patch. (You don’t even need to buy anything. They are always fun to hit up for some photos for the ‘gram.📷😉)
Carve a pumpkin.
Go apple picking.
Try a new fall flavored food item.
Take a fall drive with the windows down and admire the changing leaves. (We love going on the backroads and exploring new areas of town during this time of year.)
Bake a tasty treat. (My favorite is pumpkin bread. I’ll be doing a blog post with the recipe later this month.)
Go to a bonfire.
Watch a sunrise.
Watch a sunset.
Visit a fall festival.
Read a good book.
Open up your windows and enjoy some fresh air.
Decorate your porch, front door and/or mantel. (It doesn’t have to be pricey. Check out your local Dollar Tree.)
Wear a cozy sweater/sweatshirt.
Jump in a pile of leaves.
There are tons of ideas on Pinterest of course but these are my favorites on the cheap.
I love all of these ideas but one of my top my favorite simple thing to do is to go on a long drive. My husband and I started this tradition several years ago while we sipped on our favorite drinks on the road. (Coffee for him and apple cider for me.) Now our kids are along for the ride with their character apple juice.😆 What are some your favorite simple fall traditions? Comment below!
