You can still have fun on a budget

Posted by Elcy Meader

So money is tight, and you’re social life is now dwindling because of it. But what can you do if you have no money to spare? Don’t worry, because there are plenty of things that can cost you nothing but still give you the opportunity for socialising.

You might feel that going out and enjoying the night life is the only activity you can do, but there are so many more options.

One such activity is that you can go explore one of the local parks. Cardiff has a ton of green spaces, recreation grounds and lakes that you can go and enjoy. On your own they can give you some much needed time to reflect, however, you can head down with friends and have a great time just exploring and gaining new experiences. Well, as long as the weather holds out.Walks

Remember, there are always new experiences to have in and around Cardiff. There are farmers markets, community events, zombie runs, car boots, free gallery’s, and lots more different things going on thatCardiff Market are there ready for you to explore. You just have to find something to suit you and you can head on out into Cardiff to explore.

But don’t think you always have to be leaving the house to socialise. You can always invite friends over to yours for something as simple as a board game night, friendly card games, or a film night. Some of my best nights were the ones spent indoors with good friends. Just make sure to keep the competitiveness at a comfortable level or there could be trouble.

If you find you have a lot of food that needs to be cooked you can always cook a meal for a group of your friends. Or if you don’t have a surplus of food yourself, you can organise a night where each person brings an ingredient needed for the planned meal, and voilà, you’ve got yourself a cheap group meal sorted. Now all you have to decide is who’s going to do the washing up.

These are just a few activities that you can do that you can do with friends, or even on your own if you wanted, that cost virtually nothing. Your social life and activities don’t need to cost you a thing.
