Sure, it feels good to go out and not worry about how much money you're spending, but not everyone has that luxury. Fortunately, having a good time doesn't have to mean breaking the bank. With a little planning and creative thinking, you can have a great night out and still have a few dollars left in your pocket at the end of the night.
1. Pay with cash.
These are the slowest nights for bars and restaurants, so these are usually the nights when you'll find the best specials.
10. Think outside the box.
Skip expensive concerts and find a bar where musicians play. It's a great way to discover new music. Instead of a pricey Broadway play, find a local theatre production. Check local bookstores for author visits or talks and go out for drinks after to discuss them. Museums sometimes offer night programs, and planetariums often have stargazing nights. During the summer months, parks often have free concerts, plays, and outdoor movies. The possibilities are endless.
Saving money is a lot easier if you're having fun while you're doing it; and, contrary to popular belief, having a tight budget doesn't mean you can't go out and have a good time. It may take a little preparation and imagination, but it's possible to stay on budget and still enjoy great food, fun times, and maybe a new adventure!
