But just because you’re tightening the purse strings, it doesn't mean you can't break the shackles and have some fun – you've just got to get creative!
Here are 6 affordable ways to have fun on a tight budget, brought to you by the experts in value – New Generation Homes!
- Home dinner restaurants
Most people think saving for new homes (Perth) means you basically board yourself up at home every night. But just because you’re on a budget, doesn’t mean you can’t get out of the house once in a while! Home dinner restaurants give you all the benefits of going out to your favourite restaurant without having to fork out a lot of money!
Find three other families you usually dine out with, and create a schedule whereby each family cooks for the others once a month. You get a free dinner three days a month, and still get to go out with friends!
- Holiday close to home
Holidays can be really expensive – the flights, the accommodation, the dining out. But that doesn't mean you can't treat the family to an awesome getaway! We always seem to want to get as far away from home as possible, but there are so many great destinations right under our noses! Pick a city or town within two hours – you've probably never stayed there longer than a day, ever! Just think of all the great things you haven't seen or tried yet.
- Look up local events
How often do you actually check out all the free public events held by your local council or city? From movie nights to art festivals and community celebrations, this is your chance to tap into hours of free entertainment! Click to view Perth's upcoming events.
We often forget that the world’s biggest star is Earth itself! From stargazing, to playing at the park, hiking a national forest, or picnicking at the beach, nature is a smorgasbord of free fun just waiting to be discovered.
- Host a clothes swap day
Shopping is great fun, but your bank account may beg to differ! So why not hold a clothes swap day, whereby all your friends bring their unwanted clothing and accessories and put them up for ‘sale’ (free). You'll go home with a new outfit to wear and a new home on the horizon to boot!
If you stop thinking of it as ‘unpaid work’ you might discover how much fun giving back to the community can be! From tutoring, to cleaning, and construction work, the satisfaction and social interaction on offer can make volunteering a very rewarding experience.
