You Can Save Cash And Have A Good Time In College

Apr 27, 2008
Lots of college students out there are known for their drinking habits and parties on the weekends, but there are a lot of ways that you can have a good time every weekend and that good time not cost you an arm and a leg. If you have a habit of drinking and partying every other weekend (you should be studying, you know), here are some tips to help you lower the bill.

To limit how much you spend on beer both for yourself and for your friends, only take a certain amount of cash with you. Leave the credit cards at home, since if you are going to be getting drunk, you might be easily taken advantage of or even have your wallet stolen.

If you really have to go out to a club, make sure you drink where the specials are on any given night. Sometimes women are given discounted drinks on certain nights of the week and sometimes they are even free.

And hey, ladies, do not forget that a lot of men like to buy a woman drinks. Just be careful if you are out by yourself and do not turn your back on the drink for a minute or leave it unattended. It's nice to have someone buy you a drink, but if they slip something in it while you aren't looking, you might not live to regret it.

If you go into a sit-down restaurant, try to avoid getting beer, wine, and cocktails there. Lots of these restaurants make a ton of money on these because their markup on these items is notoriously high. Take a break and have a soda instead, especially if you need to sober up a little.

Need some help with the entertainment end of things? Lots of people are trying to make their homes (or at least, their dorm rooms) one-stop shops for entertainment by having big TVs, game consoles, computers, and other forms of entertainment.

If you really want to save money, invite friends over and have them all bring drinks and food with them. That way, nobody spends as much money as they normally would.

Renting movies through a local store is not typically very expensive and you can rotate out who pays for the rental each time you have a party.

And at least one weekend a month, avoid going out and spending any money. Take some time to do what you went to college to do in the first place: get an education.
