BOOMING ON A BUDGET
We've all been there - wanting to do something epic, when your bank account can only afford another round of groceries and gas. At BoomBoom, we believe that life should always be lived to the fullest - even when you're on a budget. Life's too short to be resentful about your finances. After all, being rich is truly a state of mind. If you're currently wondering how to ball on a budget, look no further. We came up with a list of ten things to do that are either completely or almost free - take notes!
Hit the Pool
Chances are you or your friends have a pool. Whether its at a house, apartment complex, or community center, find a pool, grab some cold drinks, bring your speaker, and have yourself a wonderful day. Bonus points if you bring chips and guac.
If you are feeling bored, get outside and get some exercise! You can go for a run to your favorite playlist, look up free yoga classes near you, go for a bike ride, or google some circuit workouts to do with a friend.
Unsure of what to do with your night? Watch a movie! Make a night of it - with popcorn, blankets, candy, and hot chocolate. Watch a classic you've never seen, or a new movie you've been itching to see.
Throw or attend a house party. It's free, and the drinks are wayyy cheaper.
Wherever you're located, get all of your friends together and hang out at the local nature spot. Whether it's the beach, forest, hiking trail, lake, river, or park, spend a quality day hanging out with your friends.
Sign up to work an event with a friend! Pick an event that's right up your alley. It can be anything from volunteering at a wellness event or a music festival to working for a charity. You'll meet tons of new people and have the best time.
Listening to podcasts is good for the brain, among many other benefits. There are over 550K podcasts out there, all for free! You can choose an informative podcast, an entertainment podcast, a lifestyle podcast... whatever floats your boat. Listen while you're driving, taking a walk, doing your dishes, or eating your meals.
Make Dinner with a Friend
Chances are you're already spending money on groceries. Prepare your meal with a friend! Plan a delicious meal that the both of you can split. You can make steak and potatoes, fish with a salad, tacos with rice and beans, or a homemade pizza. The list goes on.
