Where we have either run out of money and can’t go anywhere, or we look for ways to still ring in the New Years on a budget, without spending what little money we may have left.
The team at BB have come up with 6 fabulous ways you can celebrate New Years on a budget and still enjoy the start of 2024.
Throw a Party at Home:
It’s not impolite to ask all your guests to bring a plate of food. Invite your friends, buy some cheap fun party hats and decorations, and tell your guest you will supply snacks, entertainment and dessert, if everyone can bring a plate of food.
Picnic at the Park:
Book your mates (or family) and find a nice park somewhere where you may be able to see the fireworks (even from a distance) and pack a picnic. Make sure to throw in some fun games, a football, or any other outdoor activities its game, and some sparklers of course, and ran gin the new year with friends at the park.
Game / Movie Night:
If you don’t mind being less social, grab the girls and see if you can set up a fun games / movie night at someone place for New Years. This is a fun way to make cocktails at home in your PJS, whilst watching funny romcoms, play a few funny board games, east cake and watch the fireworks on the television.
Get out of the city for New Years and go camping instead. This is a nice cheap way to celebrate the end of the year, and the beginning of one, as you can search for anywhere really to set up camp, roast some marshmallows (unless the weather is too hot for that), tell ghost stories around the campfire and enjoy a BBQ.
Volunteer for New Years:
If your friends and family all have events on, and you just don’t have the money, or would rather not spend it on going out to lavish New Years events, try volunteering at a shelter or church, where they often host nice dinners and parties for the homeless to help them enjoy a New Years as well.
Brunch at the Beach on New Years Day:
Most people are so focused on the celebration on New Years Eve, they often find themselves with nothing to do on New Years day. Tell your friends to do something different, and celebrate on New Years Day instead. Pack a nutritional brunch and head to the beach to celebrate the start of 2024.
