Hobbies to start in 2017

5 Less Expensive Hobbies You Can Start This Year

We all have hobbies, but at times some of the activities that we like engaging in can be really expensive. Here are five less expensive hobbies that you can start this year.

Playing musical instruments

You can learn how to play musical instruments, such as the guitar, and you will never be bored. You’ll spend most of your free time playing the instrument and experimenting with it. It’s a fun activity and you may have a chance of turning it into a money making venture by playing instruments in clubs or other places where people are willing to pay for the entertainment.


This is one of the activities that you can undertake with minimal costs. You only need to join a group of friends or family, carry packed water and food, and embark on your hiking adventure. You also need hiking gear, something that you will only buy once and use on several occasions. Hiking and camping can get expensive, so look for ways to scale down the cost if you opt to do both. Hiking is an adventure that will not only help you have a good time, but it’s a great way to spend time outdoors on a small budget.


This is an awesome hobby that not only helps you sharpen your writing skills, but also can be a source of extra income. All that you will need to start is a computer, the internet, and a spare few dollars to create your own website. The amount required here is small when compared to the benefits derived from this activity. Blogging during your spare time will be one of the best decisions that you will make this year- you won’t only have a hobby, but also a means through which you can make extra money.


This is another mind development activity. It’s also one of the the cheapest hobbies. It doesn’t cost you anything if you have a home library. Take it up this year and you will sharpen your mind.

Engaging in sports

There are some sporting activities which don’t require money to engage in. Once you have sporting gear, you’ll be good to go. Tennis, running, and football, among others, will not only help you keep fit, but also serve as good hobbies. You can do it with family members or friends to make it fun.
