It’s official, staying in is the new going out! Homebodies everywhere have been vindicated by a new research which states that, more and more of us are choosing to save money by creating our own (cheaper!) nights out by staying in. Yes, having the fun come to your door saves money and is more fun because it’s in the comfort of your own home.
From having food boxes and recipes delivered for dinner parties to having pamper sessions in the living room with girlfriends, staying at home has never been more fun. And thanks to discount websites, you won’t feel a pinch in your pocket.
Here are 5 ways to have more fun at home for less.
Cook at Home
Companies like Hello Fresh and Riverford Organic Farms deliver fresh ingredients with step by step recipe guides to help you cook mouth-watering food in the comfort of your home. Order with a discount code and invite friends round to bond over cooking dinner saving yourself the steep restaurant bills London is known for.
A book club may sound a little old school but who doesn’t love a good book? With various reading tablets around at very affordable prices, you can have a lively discussion about your favourite characters at home with a drink instead of in a noisy pub shouting at each other with a pricey drinks tab.
Save yourself the exorbitant popcorn and soda prices and make your own at home. Thanks to Amazon and Netflix we are always spoiled for choice when it comes to what to watch, better still, being able to pause, rewind or restart an entire film or TV show is something you’d never get at a cinema.
Xbox or PlayStation? Monopoly or Charades? There’s no better way to spend quality time with family, and it costs nothing. Bond, get to know each other better and create memories you’ll be talking about for years without spending a penny.
With so many health and beauty shops around us and online, pampering ourselves at home has never been easier. Having a luxurious soak at home surrounded by fragrant candles or kicking everyone out and giving yourself a much needed mani & pedi will cost you the price of a pint these days.
So there you go, all the ways you can have a good time at home without spending too much money. So if you are not already a homebody, this is your chance to join the revolution. Trust me, it’s fun!
