The weekends can be a drain on the wallet. It's so easy to let money flow through your fingers when you're enjoying yourself on the weekends. After all, spending time with friends and relaxing is worth any price, right?
Well, you don't always have to spend a boatload to have fun on Saturday and Sunday. There are plenty of great activities that are easy on your bank account. Here's one you probably haven't thought of: dog or cat shows. Picture the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, just localized. There are plenty of local dog or cat shows in different regions, and you can do research to see if there's one being held near you. Entry fees are generally low, and if you're a pet lover, then it's fun to see all the different breeds. You can even buy a toy or two at the show to bring home as a souvenir for Fido.
