Some hobbies are expensive, but you can still do what you love with some careful planning. Whether you love climbing mountains, playing golf, racing go-karts or photography, some passions can get very pricey, very quickly. Between club memberships, specialised equipment, tournaments, and auctions, it’s very easy for your spending to soar. Hobbies are important for a well-balanced life, and can even contribute to mental wellbeing, but unchecked enthusiasm can blow the budgets of even the most budget-conscious.
So how can you make sure pursuing your passion remains affordable? It all starts with defining how much you want to – and can afford to – spend.
