Ever been bored on a rainy day in Gwinnett and wanted to make good use of your time? Here’s a list of 10 things under $10 that you could do! Some of our examples include: becoming viral, leveling up on Pokémon Go, and going to see movies for under $5 in a theater.
1. Go to Venture Cinema
An easy way to beat the high prices of commercial theaters and still see recent movies is by going to the Santa Fe Mall at 3750 Venture Dr suite e4, Duluth, GA 30096. The regular tickets are only $3.50, and the 3D movie tickets are $5. Currently, in their theaters, they have Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Shazam!, and many more. Also, why go to the movies alone when you can bring a friend? Ever since discovering this cinema, we’ve chosen to watch all of the biggest Blockbuster films there due to how inexpensive it is.
2. Have a Self-Care Day!
If you have any bath bombs, face masks, lotions, or other bath products, have a spa day. But, if you don’t have any of those things, go to your local pharmacy and pick up some supplies for under $10. Walgreens sells Soap & Glory products for $5, and CVS has the ME Unicorn Magic Single Bath Bomb.
3. Visit the Mall of Georgia
If you’re really bored, you can window shop at the mall or whip out your phone and play Pokémon Go. It is chalked full of Pokéstops and Gyms, and you never know what you might catch while you’re there.
4. Post a Video on Tik Tok
As silly as it sounds, Tik Tok could be really fun if you’re with your friends. You can also duet with famous creators such as @nicemichael and @benjikrol. Who knows, you might go viral and end up on the For You Page, but don’t let that internet fame get to your head!

5. Curl Up with a Good Book
A good way to pass the time and exercise your brain is to read a book. Whether that’s finding a book online from Amazon or on a Kindle, finding a book in your house that you’ve never read, or going to 2nd and Charles to pick up a free book. During one visit to 2nd and Charles at 1705 Mall of Georgia Blvd, Buford, GA 30519 We picked up Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, and it was a spectacular read.
6. Watch a Movie or Binge a TV Show
Invite your friends over for a movie day and marathon your favorite series whether that’s Twilight, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Marvel Cinematic Universe, or whatever. Netflix has great shows like Black Mirror, Parks and Recreations. Twin Peaks, The Office, Stranger Things, and plenty more. We can’t even tell you how many times we’ve done this on a rainy day snuggled up in a warm blanket with hot chocolate.
7. Play a Game
Take out a board game that has been lying around your house and challenger a friend or family member to a match or two. Play a classic game of Trouble, Sorry, and Candyland and revel in the nostalgia. If you don’t like or don’t have board games at your house, make up a game or play a video game. One rainy day, we played the Game of Life with our friends for 4 hours and have so many fond memories from that day.
8. DIY Crafts
Browse Pinterest and find a craft that you could do with the materials in your own home like make a photo wall or homemade stickers. If you invite your friends, you can start a band by crafting instruments out of the things that you have and jam out.
9. Listen to Something while Cleaning the House
The Jonas Brothers released a new album, Happiness Begins, not too long ago, and it is the perfect music for getting your life together. If the JoBros aren’t your style, turn on a podcast, listen to your own music, or don’t listen to anything at all. Listen to anything or nothing as long as it allows you to be productive enough to stay on task.
10. Listen to Music You’ve Never Heard Before
On Spotify, there is a tab called Discover Weekly, which suggests new music based on an algorithm that tracks your history of listening to music on their app. A YouTube Mix is a great way to find new music that is your taste and that you’ve never heard before. You can also lookup your favorite music video and scroll through the recommended music and fall down a rabbit hole of new possibilities.
Hopefully one of these things has sparked your interest so you’ll never be bored again in Gwinnett. At the almost impossible event that none of these interest you, here’s a bonus suggestion: take a nap. There’s nothing quite like listening to the rain pitter-patter on your window as you fall asleep.
