It's time to find a way how to save money on the weekends, without becoming a total house cat! Check out some ways to have fun and still save some money on weekends.
Weekends can be the most fun, but at the same time, Mondays can be the hardest day for your wallet, after seeing how much you spent.
It's great to know some ways to reduce your weekend expenses and still have a good time, like these:
Sell items for funds
If your closet hasn't been cleaned out in six months or you have a lot of ignored items lying about your room, then you might just have going out money waiting to be cashed in.
Whether it's last season's coat or an iPod you no longer use, cleaning up your apartment can lead to some guilt-free splurging money.
Host your friends
If the plan this weekend is to hang out with your favorite people, swap bar tables for coffee tables. As in, invite your friends over and party together at home base.
You can make it into a fun potluck or have them bring their favorite cocktail ingredients. It'll save everyone involved a bundle.
Fill up your weekends with garage sales
If you and your friends are into DIYs, consider spending your weekends repurposing old treasures. Whether you refurbish that old coffee table into an amazing centerpiece for your living room or hem that vintage dress and then sell it on Etsy, it'll be a fun and cheap way to spend your weekend.
If you're in a city or town that has a decent train and bus system, delete your Uber app and promise to only take public transport to cut down on costs. If you’re hesitant to take the metro by yourself, find a friend who will swear off Uber with you and join you on the subway.
Limit your drink intake
If you want to go out, you still can! Just limit yourself to one or two drinks at the bar, and then switch to Sprite or Cola afterward. You'll still get to enjoy the fun ambiance of the bar or restaurant, and you won't blow your budget while doing it.
