You don’t always need to have loads of cash in your pocket to have a gala time with your friends.
Here are ways to hang out together with your girlfriends without spending too much money.
Choose each of you all’s favourite movies of the year and watch it one by one. This is a great way to keep yourselves, occupied. Grab some cheap food from the nearest food joint or cook something simple, get on the couch and enjoy your day.
EACH BRING A FOOD ITEM FROM HOME
Ask each of your friends to cook and get something of their own and you cook a dish at home. Then have a gala meal. This saves loads of money when compared to eating out.
Or you could also get together and help each other in cooking something. Download a recipe from the internet or just utilize your creativity and put together something nice for dinner.
HAVE A PICNIC
Visit a picnic spot on the outskirts of town. Carry food, drinks, games and magazines. Make the most of a beautiful day.
A LITTLE IS A LOT
Make a meal out of whatever is there in the refrigerator. You don’t need to get any stuff from the market, spending a lot of money, unnecessarily.
Take it up as a challenge. It can actually turn out to be fun.
Play video games, board games, card games; just about anything. You could also play games like truth or dare and hide and seek.
ENJOY SPA AT HOME
Give each other a good massage and body pampering. Use perfumed oil, hot towels and massage gels that you already have at home, or purchase some form the supermarket and give each other a relaxing massage.
Quit mega stores and malls. Say goodbye to brands and go street shopping with your girlfriends. You can often get hold of similar stuff in the streets for a much cheaper rate than you’d procure at a mall. This is a great way to save up on your money.
GO TO THE LOCAL PARK
Go to a park on a nice wintry afternoon/evening and spend your day sitting and chatting out there. You could also play outdoor games like badminton out in the park.
ATTEND ART EXHIBITIONS
This could be a fun thing to do. It is something similar to window shopping if you decide not to buy anything. However, grazing through the gallery filled with all sorts of artwork can be a truly enriching experience for both you and your friends.
Keep a track of free concerts held at your nearest pubs and only pay for drinks.
Volunteer for a good cause. Visit an NGO and offer to help. Seek up places looking for volunteers required for a good cause. Some of these units often offer remuneration as well.
GO SIGHT SEEING IN YOUR OWN HOMETOWN
Go for a walk with your babes, exploring new neighbourhoods or visiting places in your town itself that you’ve never visited. No need of travelling out of town and spending loads of money.
LEARN TO MAKE COCKTAILS
Buy a bottle of alcohol each and meet up to mix up a nice cocktail. Try something new and save the recipe of the one which turns out to be the best.
SIT AND DISCUSS A BOOK
This can be really interesting for those who are avid readers. Decide from beforehand as to what book all of you should read and then meet up to discuss and critique it.
GIVE EACH OTHER A MAKEOVER
Open YouTube and try out different looks on one another. It’s alright if you go wrong. This will help you master the look that suits you best, for your next night out.
All you need is speakers, microphone and a computer to have a karaoke party. This can be a lot of fun even when you don’t know how to sing. Do serious singing and joke around, whatever; just mix it all up and enjoy the night.
HAVE A SLEEPOVER
The age old tradition of having a sleepover when all else fails – still remains. Have your friends come over or visit them and have a sleepover. Gossip, laugh, cry, be your worst and best selves.
HELP EACH OTHER GET ORGANIZED
Visit each other’s houses one at a time and help each other de-clutter you all’s flats. It helps in lowering your load of cleaning up, all by yourself.
