The $0 Weekend

Now that my Canadian Personal Finance Celebrity series has ended, I’m happy to bring back the $0 weekend! Below is a list of free fun to get you through this coming Saturday & Sunday. Enjoy!

The $0 Weekend

Pumpkin-Pie-Spice2-1-of-11. Make Pumpkin Pie Spice

It’s Fall and you’ve already had more pumpkin spice lattes than your body can handle, but you want more. Pumpkin spice oatmeal, pumpkin spice cookies, pumpkin spice in a jar you can just inhale at your leisure. I’ve got you covered: recipe here. You’re welcome.

Pain_&_Gain_Teaser_Poster2. Watch Pain & Gain

I can’t even. Mark Walberg is awesome and this movie is hilarious, and it’s extra funny if you’re into fitness and can laugh at yourself (or enjoy mocking those that are into fitness). It’s about a group of body-builders that kidnap a personal training client and torture him until he hands over all his assets to them. It’s crazy stupid, which is why it’s so shocking that THIS IS A TRUE STORY.

3. Convince someone to Tweet you a coffee.

Starbucks new promotion lets you send coffees to friends via twitter. It’s pretty rad, but if you want to keep your spending at $0 you’ll need to be a recipient not a giver ;) I received a tweeted coffee last month when a friend saw my snowy photos and decided I needed a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Everyone needs friends like that! Click here to see how it works.

TVD-6-temporada4. Get your Vampire Diaries fix

Oh, this show is in a downward spiral, but I can’t stop. The fifth season is now on Netflix and you get a doppleganger, and you get a doppelganger, everybody gets a doppelganger. But I will endure anything to watch Ian Sommerhalder. There is nothing I love more than curling up with tea and indulging in bad TV on a chilly fall day.

Despite my excessive mentions of the beverage in this post, the pumpkin spice latte is NOT the only pumpkin worthy treat in autumn. My fiance was dubious when I dropped a $1.50 can of pumpkin puree in our grocery basket this weekend without any idea of what I was going to use it for, but the internet came through for me.
