5 Savvy Weekend Saving Tips You Should Try Today

When the weekend rolls around it's easy to get swept away in all the fun, just be sure your savings don't get swept away too. Instead of weekend activities that put a drain on your funds, avoid your impulses to shop, shop, shop, and employ all your smart saving tactics. I know you can do it! Stay strong and capitalize on the fun that doesn't come with a hefty price tag.

  1. Save Big When You Eat Out — When the craving strikes for a meal out, just do it the smart way. There are tons of great deals to be had at some of your favorite restaurants, just be resourceful and you could score some serious discounts.
  2. Plan Some Cost-Friendly Fun With Friends — A weekend night in can be just as fun as a big night out, and in the morning you won't regret that monster bar tab. Instead, have your crew over for game night, a potluck, or BYOB barbecue.
  3. Find Out If It's Cheaper to Make Yourself — Forget spending on the basics you can make on your own for less. Plus, you'll have fun in the kitchen whipping up some cooking staples of your own. Turn it into a group activity when you have your friends join in on the savings.
