Wanna save some cash without the FOMO? Just because you’re trying to save some money, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun whilst doing it! Below are some ways you and your friends can do things on the cheap.
1. Sign up to coupon sites
Looking for cheap deals online or things to do on a day out? Websites like Groupon and Honey are great money savers you can try out whether you’re out and about or chilling at home. Groupon and Scoopon are discount coupon websites which searches for deals in your local area. It also features a coupon section which provides promo codes for your fave online stores like ASOS and Nike. Honey is also a great tool for saving a few bucks whilst shopping online. Honey is a browser extension which offers you promo codes that relate to the website you’re shopping on.
2. Sell or take part in clothes swaps
Want to revamp your wardrobe but don’t want to empty your bank account? Selling and trading clothes is a great way to get some ‘new’ threads. Apps like Depop are great for giving some of your not so favourite jeans a new lease of life. Making an Instagram account for your clothes can also be a helpful tool in selling that unwanted winter wardrobe when thing start warming up. Another fun way to get some new pieces is doing a clothes swap with a friend. Find yourself a friend with a similar style to you and swap away!
3. Start meal prepping
Work and school lunches biting into your savings? Instead of buying your lunch at the canteen or your local café, start meal prepping! Set aside a Sunday afternoon to buy your ingredients and pre-pack your lunches for the week. Get creative, bake a loaf of banana bread, or make some rice paper rolls. Lunches brought from home don’t have to be boring!
4. Host a night in
Host your own mukbang with friends where everyone makes and brings their favourite meal to share. And while you’re at it, why not relive your childhood with friends! Find your fave old movies on streaming platforms and play some board games. Don’t forget about some healthy snacks too. Did somebody say homemade popcorn and bliss balls? Yasss!
