Affordable and Fun Fall Activities!
Apple & pumpkin picking. The best time to apple and pumpkin pick in Autumn is the end of September. With that being said, now is the perfect time to start budgeting for the occasion. Each week put aside a little money that you will be bringing with you when you head out to go picking. This money can be used to make a day out of the trip! You can visit the local farms and purchase homemade goodies or stop for lunch, depending on the location on the place you will be going to for the apple and pumpkin picking.
