Hobbies for Cheap

We often think that we need to spend a lot of money to entertain ourselves. This is not the case most of the time. There are many hobbies out there that are very entertaining, but cost little to no money. We are here to tell you that many of these options exist almost anywhere and are a great way to save money! Here at CreditBox we have come up with some suggestions for hobbies that fall under this category:


Gardening is something that costs hardly any money. Some materials that you will need to start are dirt, seeds or flowers, water, and some gardening tools. All of these items do not have much of a cost associated with them so it can be fairly cheap to do. Another great thing that can come from gardening is that if you are planting vegetables for example, you now have access to a sustainable food source. 


Photography is one of the great hobbies due to the fact that after the initial startup cost, there is not much money that is associated with it. Once you have purchased your camera (it doesn’t even need to be a fancy one) you are now free to start taking pictures of things that you truly enjoy. This is also a great way to travel to different places and capture moments that you would love to remember for years to come.

Learn to play an instrument

Like photography, playing an instrument is a hobby that really only requires an initial startup cost. Beyond that, there are many cheap or free opportunities to learn how to play the instrument. One great thing about learning how to play an instrument is that you may have the ability to make some extra cash on the side. There are also plenty of opportunities with small shows or musical performances to do so.


Cooking is also a great hobby to take up. Not only can cooking be enjoyable and fun, but it is also seen as a stress reliever to many. This hobby is also very practical since everyone needs to eat! You can also create new recipes and create dishes for cheap to save money.

At the most, some of these hobbies require minimal cash but are often free after an initial startup cost. They also provide a way to save money. The nice thing about these hobbies is that they are possible to do almost anywhere! Don’t be afraid to go outside your comfort zone to have some fun for little to no money!

As always, if you are in need of some extra cash to get these hobbies started, CreditBox is here for you! Apply online at
