It’s always fun to hang out with friends, especially if you are blessed with interesting friends. One of the best things about having friends is that you have people to share lovely memories and fun-filled moments with.
Yet, one of the major things that keep hindering the get-togethers you have been planning with your amazing friends is the consideration of expenses. Don’t feel bad about that, students tend to seek the most economical and less expensive ways out of situations.
Do you keep thinking about how you can all have fun as friends without having to spend too much or spend out of your comfort zone?
Worry no more, because this article entails a list of some affordable fun activities you should engage in with your loving friends.
1. Go On A Picnic
Yes! A picnic!
You’re probably thinking about how you could go on a picnic with a limited budget, but what you need to know is that a picnic doesn’t have to be extravagant.
To reduce transportation costs, a lush garden with a serene environment in your university, or even a public garden close to your location would do just fine. Most major cities are home to botanical gardens where you can find a plethora of beautiful trees.
You could use the “division of labour” method. One person would be responsible for the transportation, another person would sort out the drinks, the third person could bring the delicious homemade meals along, and so on.
Remember, the most important things should be the presence of love, good food, drinks and great memories.
2. Have A Minor Indoor Party
The next on the list…
Having a minor and intimate indoor party is another affordable activity you should try out with your friends.
Staying together indoors would give you guys the avenue to bond even better, share more about yourselves, hold interesting discussions, watch movies, play fun games and enjoy refreshments.
A simple but great way to make amazing memories!
3. Go Watch A Movie
Share lovely moments at the cinema!
Watching movies together at the cinema is a fully immersive experience. There is a long list of interesting movies that are engaging to watch at the cinema.
All you need to do is to decide on a movie to choose, get the affordable tickets, get snacks, enjoy the movie you’ve chosen to watch and hold discussions about the movie afterwards.
