3. No money doesn’t equal no fun
Remember, just because you can’t afford a round doesn’t mean you can’t hang out with your mates.
Things feel increasingly tight at the moment, and less spare cash means more of us are dropping the things we love doing. Stuff like gym memberships, hobbies, seeing your friends, or travelling can feel like luxuries to put on hold. Plus the day feels way longer without those lunch break treats.
If you’re looking to save some money, there’s still a bunch of things you can do. Swap spenny meals out for a takeaway or bring-a-dish night with your friends or family - just because you’re eating in doesn’t mean you have to dress down. Make an occasion of it.
You might also be surprised by the free activities near you, like local parks and places to hike or cycle, art exhibitions, libraries, museums, or events. Plus there’s plenty of wallet winning options like cheap comedy nights, movie marathons, games nights, or markets to explore.
