Since we're in full-on savings mode in preparation for our vacation to California, our weekend was kind of … well, quiet.

Not that that's a bad thing — Debbie was under the weather, but we didn't really have any plans. For us, not having plans is a bad thing.

When we don't have any plans, we tend to do the one thing we definitely do not need to be doing now — spending money. Whether it's going to the mall, going out to eat, or frivolously shopping, we spend money.

So with no major plans but no desire to spend money, what do you do?

Obviously, there's a lot that can be done. We cleaned the house, watched a movie, spent time with family, played some Wii, planned our trip, and more. Yes, it's not that exciting, but it doesn't have to be.

We managed to have an enjoyable weekend without doing any damage to our bank account.

Then next time you're sitting around with nothing to do, think about all the things you could be doing without spending money. Maybe it's going outside for a walk, spending time with your family, blogging, playing a game, taking a nap, cleaning your house …

The list goes on and on.
