How to Socialise on a Budget
When you’re at university, you are not exactly rolling in the money. But socialising is such a large part of University life and you can't miss out on that! You need to find a balance between the two, but we’ve got some tips and tricks that will help you save money whilst enjoying time with your friends.
Find places which have student offers
There are plenty of places which have students offers and nights. Do a little research before and plan your week around these, you’ll save some serious dough.
Buy your own snacks/ drinks and stay in
Eating out is nice, but not friendly on the old student budget. Why not head to the local supermarket, pick up some bits and make your own dinner? Fajitas are great for sharing and enjoying whilst watching a film.
Takeaways can be super expensive but lord they are delicious. Creating your own fakeaway will not only save you money, but it's better for your health too. Click here for some ideas.
