7 clever ways to save money when at after work drinks

So it’s after work drinks time and you’re celebrating the end of a long day. You want to hit the town and rightly so. The cocktails are calling people!

But a going out on the town needn’t leave your bank account in meltdown. All you need is a few clever tips and tricks from List for Life (because, we go through it too!) to have a great time – guilt-free.

1. Pre, pre and pre again (yep, even in the office. So long as it’s past 5:30!)

More money spent in the supermarket means less money spent at the bar. Get colleagues involved though, else it may look a bit weird! Also DO NOT drink from your shoe like this woman, however good an idea it may seem at the time.

2. No front seat, no taxi-fare

It’s a bit cheeky, but if you’re low on funds let your friends help you out on travel.

3. Snack time is home time

Have your post-club food waiting for you at home. It’s cheaper than Maccys, honest. And you can eat it in bed.

4. Budget bonanza

Set yourself a budget. Yes, it’s boring, but it has to be done. Especially if you actually want to be able to eat next week. When it payday again? Lol.

5. Ditch the cards

Leave your debit at home. It’s really a wise move. Or you’ll wake up needing a loan… for more drinks next week.

6. Make some new friends

Don’t be like Ross. Like ever. Get some new friends. You could also meet a potential new love interest/fling/bit on the side.

7. Play clothes-swap

Don’t buy a new outfit! Borrow one from your housemates instead. Just choose the friends wisely…because Elle Woods is totally right (as per!).
