Spending Time with Friends without Spending Money

Hey everyone, today we are talking about free things to do with friends!

The 9th episode of Maya Monday is here, and I am so excited because I revamped the format of the series.

Spending Time with Friends Without Spending Money

Cook dinner together

Make your favorite meal with your friends, or organize a potluck. It will be really fun to hang out with your friends and save money by creating dinner together. If you really want to get fancy, I would suggest using a meal box subscription, like Dinnerly. It is the cheapest on the market right now with meals at $5 per serving, and the meals are delicious.

Go exploring

Go be a tourist in your city, visit a fun attraction, or seek a new place with your friends. There are plenty of things to see, no matter where you live. Even if you are in a smaller town with few attractions, make it a point to go out with friends to learn something about your home that you didn’t know before. The pursuit will be a lot of fun.

Have a Netflix party

Pull out some popcorn, and watch some of your favorite childhood movies and TV shows. You all can sit and decide what you’re going to watch (or make a playlist), and then have fun being together. My favorite thing to do is watch childhood movies that I loved and laugh about how ridiculous they are. I mean, have you ever noticed how old the cast of High School Musical actually looks in the movie?

    Being an adult = being poor, lol, so I definitely appreciate this post. My go-to, budget-friendly idea always involves staying in and watching Netflix — using my brother’s account of course. 🙂
