Keep Your Social Life Intact
When young professionals practice the two-week tally of expenses, they are usually shocked to find how much of their earnings go to entertainment. The cost of eating out at restaurants and bars can add up quite quickly. One does not have to eat out at fancy 5-star restaurants to quickly be down one hundred dollars. The average price of a meal can set you back a few days’ pay. When you consider that young professionals eat out 2-3 times per weeks one can see how quickly many of them end up in debt.
“There are ways to have a good social life and save money.” (“Rugged Individualism: Money Saving Tips: Keep Your Social …”) You will have to cut down on meals and nights out, but you will not have to cut down on fun. Consider having friends over for dinner and drinks instead of going out. (“Life skills: A beginner’s guide to … – Barnsley College”) “This provides for a lovely social atmosphere at a fraction of the cost.” (“Christian Rogelio Blog: Mga Tips Kung Paano Ka Makakatipid”)
If you take fifty dollars as the average cost for a dinner for two at a restaurant, you can take that same fifty dollars and cook a great meal for 5 or 6 people. Your friends will enjoy being cooked for and your home provides quite a good social atmosphere. You will also have the added advantage of being in your own home and not have to endure noise and crowds from the outside.
Having friends over for dinner and drinks is a terrific way to cut back the costs and still have a social life. If you socialize with the same group of people, suggest taking turns. By doing this all of you will save on entertainment and enjoy some excellent times together.
